A word from our chefs:

We do our best to source as many ingredients as possible from local providers. Some of our loyal local suppliers include Carroll’s greengrocers for vegetables, Catsfield Farm for free – range eggs, The Poppyseed Bakery who make our sandwich bread and burger buns, and local butchers Burt’s, who provide our chicken and bacon. We use free-range meat from Sussex farms, including the pork that makes the home made sausages so tasty, and our apples and pears come from Sussex orchards.
