Sustainability / Our Producers
Suffolk is a county that is replete with fantastic local produce and suppliers. We are lucky enough to source approximately 70% of our food within 38 miles and below is a list just some of the wonderful people who supply us with their fresh produce. We try where possible to use sustainable ingredients and we recycle most of our waste. We bake our own bread, make most of our pasta and are a firm believer in nose to tail ‘whole beast’ butchery.
