We are passionate about using the best quality ingredients for all our dishes and wherever possible we work with local suppliers to source fresh, seasonal ingredients.
Simon has worked closely with many of our suppliers for over twenty years and through these strong relationships we are able to source fabulous and unusual ingredients.
For our fresh fish we venture to the coasts of South Devon. Andy comes up from Brixham to bring us the finest, freshest fish available. He is able to supply a broad range of fish and shellfish and, given a little notice, we will always accommodate special request to provide your favourite fishy treat.
