The Mewburn family have been farming land around Brandesburton since 1899. The story of Bert’s really started with the beautiful lake that we overlook: in the 1970s our grandfather Robert (whom the pizzeria is named after) realised that some of the family land was sat on glacial sand and gravel deposits, so began to extract the minerals. The lake was created when the extraction work finished, and Dacre Park was established as a touring caravan site in 1984.
The park has grown over the years, with the introduction of Scandinavian holiday lodges in 2005 and then Coneygarth Lakes and lodges in 2012. Bert’s opened in June 2014, and has been a real family affair, with all four of Robert’s great grandchildren closely involved in the restaurant.
We still have the farm, where we are now rearing our own Wagyu beef, which is served in the restaurant. Being food lovers ourselves and putting our heart and soul into Bert’s, we value and appreciate all customer feedback. Our family have been overwhelmed by the response and support from the village and surrounding communities, we look forward to welcoming you and your friends and family to our restaurant.
