Quality and Nutrition
Over 90% of our dishes are homemade. This means that we can produce them using quality ingredients that have been sourced locally wherever possible (see our local food suppliers map below). All ingredients we use are checked to ensure out standards are met and for their suitability for special diets. There is no Monosodium Glutamate in our ingredients and no Genetically Modified food on our menu.
We put emphasis on sourcing environmentally sustainable and ethically sourced foods. Our fruit and vegetable suppliers work with local growers to make the most of seasonality. These factors are supported by our menu holding the Silver Food for Life Catering Mark awarded by the Soil Association.
