Buying British Matters…

Best of British

We believe passionately in supporting British farmers and their produce, and we know that many of you feel the same way.  In fact, a survey of the 50 things we love most about Britain revealed that we are in fact a nation of real foodies! Fourteen of the top answers were food related with No1. being bacon butties and No 2. being roast dinners!

Our mission is to cook Seasonal, Organic, Sustainable, Great British Food – SOS Great Britain for short! We ask our suppliers to provide ingredients that have been planted, harvested and reared within this great commonwealth. Our bespoke approach allows us to be entirely flexible, our preference is to offer you seasonal menus. For example, rather than offering a red berry dessert in January we would recommend a pear or apple-based dish.

By choosing to pursue a policy of using seasonal produce from farms and land in neighbouring towns we are decreasing the size of our carbon footprint and supporting UK farmers and producers, and in essence our own economy. Our consistent support helps to secure the future of many other UK independent suppliers and ensures prices remain more stable. Without the demand, prices inevitably increase, goods become unaffordable and ultimately unavailable.

Fun Fact

When it was first introduced to Britain in the 18th century, Broccoli was originally known by the much fancier name of Italian asparagus.
