Local suppliers Wherever possible we buy from local farmers and growers. We rarely buy out of season or use imported produce and we regularly change our menus to make the most of a freshly-landed catch or the new season’s crop. We are in tune with the seasons and in touch with the provenance of everything we use. Of course, citrus fruits come in from Southern Europe, and other items from further afield. But typically imports will make up just a small sample of the vibrant, joyful food we always aim to create. Mark at Prime Cuts, in Shaftesbury, provide us with poultry & lamb. Our burgers are made by Jim Baker to our our own exclusive recipe, and Buxton Butchers, in Winterbourne, supply us with phenomenal beef, scrupulously traceable to individual animals from the lush pastures of the West Counties. Fish comes from British waters and is supplied by Kingfisher of Brixham. Eggs are supplied by Fluffetts, where hens range freely and happily across 155 acres of grasslands. Yoghurts are from Brown Cow Organics in Pilton, and our cheeses come from the best and most interesting producers in the South West. All our bread, burger buns and biscuits are baked daily on the premises, using Shipton Mill and Doves organic flours. Gluten- free alternatives are available on request. Jams, chutneys, piccalilli and sauces are made freshly in the kitchens, and we churn our own ice cream using milk and cream from Cotteswold Dairy.
