Local Produce

It's too easy to simply write 'we source locally' on the menu. It's too vague, but it's become ubiquitous in recent years. Equally, menus that are sprinkled with names and places can be difficult to read. So we do our best, we choose local and seasonal when we can and here are some of our regular suppliers and producers... 

Brunswick Organic Nursery just up the road in Bishopthorpe provide us with great organic salads, fruit and vegetables. They also do amazing work helping adults with learning difficulties

All our bacon is Yorkshire dry cured from our local butchers, M & K Quality Butchers

Our pork is outdoor reared and rare breed from the Ashbridge Family at Taste Tradition, near Thirsk

We use honey from Jason Learner at Wild North Yorkshire Honey

Justin Staal is our kipper & smoked salmon guy

All our eggs are free range from Elliotts, Bewholme, near Beverley
