The chef is Kieran Kavanagh, representing the sixth generation of publicans in this very spot. His cooking is robust and homely, with eclectic touches which may spring from his being half-Yorksire and his wife, Frieda, being half-Italian. Between them, they make The Gravediggers a very warm and welcoming place without any of the pretensions of the average “gastropub”. The old bar is beautifully preserved; you will recognise it from lots of films.
