We aim to get as much of our produce and supplies from local suppliers as possible and are grateful to be supported by other wonderful businesses and initiatives in the area. Minimising our impact on the environment is of great importance to us, so as well as using local suppliers, we follow a zero waste policy and are seeking ways to minimise our use of plastic.
