Kent, also known as ‘The Garden of England’, and Sussex are home to some of the best food and drink producers that our country has to offer, many of which are less than an hour’s drive from our doorstep. We’re firm believers in the term “If you’ve got it, flaunt it” which is why we are always proud to actively promote any local provenance that has been used on our menus to our diners who visit us from all over the world. We also pay regular visits to our suppliers which helps us to appreciate the effort and passion they have in sourcing us with their amazing produce.
Our head chef and his team take great pride in designing the menus to reflect the seasons that they are in, focusing on Kentish and Sussex fare where possible to ensure that what’s served on the plate will be at its best in terms of quality and flavour.
Ethics and animal welfare also play a big part in our ethos on food sourcing. If we are unable to source chicken from a local farm where we can be sure that these standards are met for example, we adhere to a strict food sourcing policy to ensure that the chicken that we do buy is at least Red Tractor assured so that our diners can be confident that what they are eating has come from an independently inspected British farm with much stricter regulations than what you might find on the continent. We feel that any business that is food-led has a responsibility to prioritise good ethics on animal welfare over their food costs.
