We are very lucky to a have a wonderful selection of suppliers who give us great quality ingredients to cook with. We pride ourselves on using fresh, local and sustainable produce.
We buy raw and basic as much as we can and make in house as much as possible, this includes our wonderful homemade bread, chips, and desserts. We feel this extra effort is well worth it!
