Where our ingredients come from
We source the fruit and vegetables used in our cooking as locally as possible. A lot of it comes from Staffordshire, Shropshire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Herefordshire as well as Birmingham and the Black Country, depending on season and occasion. We often source things directly from local farms in these areas. Fruit and vegetables make up a very large part of what we cook. Some of the vegetables are organically produced, particularly the carrots and potatoes.
- We cook nearly everything from scratch at our premises in Digbeth, Birmingham.
- We buy Fairtrade goods such as coffee, tea, spices and sugar from Lembas and Traidcraft, among others.
- We use environmentally-friendly cleaning products whenever possible (where environmental health regulations permit).
Increasing our use of environmentally friendly, organic, local and fair trade products even more is a priority for us – we’ll keep you posted on our progress.
