Fanatical about good, honest, healthy food, we use sustainably sourced ingredients and buy seasonal produce from local suppliers where we can. Our cooks are experts in creating enticing meals from fresh ingredients and they really know their onions – sourced, like many of our ingredients from Kent farms!

We are always looking for ways to improve so please let us know if you think we’re missing a trick. We’re here to help.

Some of our local producers include Gorend Farm, Walmestone Farm, The Kent Potato Company, Boundary Farm, Rumwood Farm and Bank Farm. We also ensure all our fish is sustainably sourced and accredited by the Marine Stewardship Council.
