Kerridge runs three pubs in Marlow, Buckinghamshire – the Hand & Flowers, the Coach and the Butcher’s Tap.
Two Michelin-starred pubs the Hand & Flowers first opened in 2005 and gained its first Michelin star within a year, achieving its second in 2012.
Getting in touch
It is currently number 14 on the Estrella Damm Top 50 Gastropub list after heading it for many years, before being retired from the competition in 2014.
It came out of retirement in 2018, reappearing on the list at number 19 before moving to its current position.
Kerridge opened the Butcher’s Tap in 2017, in a bid to “bring the high street alive again”. The pub is also a traditional butcher’s shop that serves ales alongside a small selection of food.
The celebrity chef posted on his Instagram about the new series, calling for failing pubs to get in touch with production company Bone Soup.
The post said: “Is your pub facing an uncertain future? Each week, 18 UK pubs go out of business. Are you fighting to save a much-loved local from ‘last orders’?
“Tom Kerridge, chef and publican, is making a prime-time TV series for BBC Two about British pubs under threat.
“Tom will be using his business experience and his passion for the licensed industry to work with determined publicans and communities to save their much-loved pubs from closing their doors for good.
“If you need help with a struggling pub or are trying to save one that’s on the brink of closure, we would love to hear your story.
“Please email or call the team at Bone Soup Productions with your name, contact details and some information about the pub at firstname.lastname@example.org or 0117 906 4321.”
