In short, we believe that great quality food should not go hand in hand with ripping customers off; it should be accessible to everyone and, as a basic pre-requisite, all meat on our menus should both be free range and British, raised with great husbandry and to high welfare standards.
Our fish is supplied with strict sustainability policies for both wild and farmed stock, so we’re not depleting those varieties under threat from our own shores. It’s as fresh as it can be, travelling from the coast the same day as catch and is viewed as a ‘here today, gone tomorrow’ product.
When it comes to fresh produce we’re not going to prattle on and insist on organic, that every ingredient is grown in our allotment up the road or that every product we use in locally sourced or from the UK. Our attitude is such that if the best product is local or British then we’re going to get our paws on it every time and Union Jack flags will be seen flapping wildly from our camp. But Mother Nature is pretty harsh on Blighty and, by the law of sunshine averages, our foreign friends will beat us hands down. Getting consistently great quality products sometimes means taking a swim and sourcing away from this little island… But you can bet your bottom dollar we’ll also promote beautiful, British, seasonal fare wherever we can.
