our suppliers

quality ingredients is key…

Ben’s ethos is to champion produce from the UK and to try and source as much of it locally as possible.   It all starts with the best quality ingredients, which makes his job easier and is the success of the end product.  ‘It’s a continuous search for complexity within simplicity”. We do not serve or sell anything we have not tried ourselves. So doing wine tastings to choose the wines for our list is a ‘chore’, but someone has to do it… you’re welcome!

The Fish Shop

Frensham Market Farm

It took 18 months, but now we have found ourselves a grower. Tom and Grace and their market garden farm are 15 minutes away from us in Frensham, by the ‘big’ pond. Along with the classic veg, Ben is excited by the unique varieties they grow and also have to offer, like agretti or huauzontle (waz-un-telé). Working closely with them, enables us to complete our farm to table ethos. /
