The festival, which will be held in Dunorlan Park in July for the third year running, will also welcome Roland Gift, Toploader and Beverley Knight to the stage.

Alongside the music, TV chef James Martin will be hosting the event. He has presented cookery programmes for more than two years, including his current Saturday Morning Show, as well as publishing 19 best-selling cookbooks.

Founder of Pub in the Park, TV chef Tom Kerridge, said: "I am so proud of what it has become - a coming together of the best chefs in the business, a celebration of incredible food topped off with an ace music line-up where you can create amazing memories with family and friends – it’s my idea of the perfect day out."

Last year's festival attracted thousands to enjoy food, drink and music from Rick Astley, Will Young and KT Tunstall.

The aim of the event is to create a relaxed and intimate gathering; supporting and celebrating local talent, as well as presenting some of the biggest names in food and music, with each venue seeing Michelin-starred and award-winning pubs and restaurants serving tasting dishes showing their signature style.

The Tanner brothers, who run the Kentish Hare, and Will Devlin, who leads the Smallholding kitchen at Kilndown and Atul Kochhar and has recently opened Vaasu will also be at the park, cooking up some tasty treats for visitors to sample.

Running from July 10 to July 12, pre-sale tickets will be available on Wednesday, February 5 and general release on Friday, February 7.
