What we're passionate about
Field to fork
Good quality meat is at the forefront of all of our dishes.
Our farm is made up of rare breed cows, sheep and pigs, with the vision to create a field to fork business.
Our belted galloway cows, affectionately known as the oreo cow for their white stripe, are reared for their quality marbled beef.
The beef has been hung for 30 days and is nearly ready for your plates in the pub.
Did you know that it is estimated that America uses 500 million straws each day which end to end could circle the planet 2.5 times.
it is important to us to try and reduce single use plastic in our business. That is why you won't find any plastic straws in our pub.
we also pick suppliers who think the same as us. For example our crisps come from Two Farmers who make Their crisp packets 100% compostable.
Also our coffee, from Jute coffee, creates zero waste. The used coffee grounds are collected and turned into coffee logs and their recyclable durable tubs are guaranteed to last 25 years which saves 1000 kilo bags from landfill sites per tub.
Supporting your Local
We're also big on 'Supporting your local.' We believe that by buying locally we can reduce our food miles and in turn reduce our carbon footprint.
It also guarantees fresh produce that hasn't been frozen in transit. That's why wherever possible our meat comes from our own farm or a butcher in Market Harborough.
We even have a wine from an English vineyard, Coolhurst!
We also hire locally with the majority of our staff living in the village or nearby. This means many of us have an easy commute by walking to work!
