We’ve now added food miles to all of our dishes. Food miles are calculated by distance travelled from supplier to restaurant. All herbs are grown on site using our hydroponic and aquaponic systems. Take a look at our interactive map below to see where our suppliers are located.
We have excluded seasoning and spices, our salt is from the Dorset coast and we use British spice alternatives where possible.

All our vegetables are supplied from Sopley Farm, which is only 5.6km from the restaurant.
Sopley is a low intervention farm which means they use as little chemicals as possible, work with the seasons, rotating crops and only selecting the best, leaving the rest in the ground to re-nourish – all of this is reflected in the amazing quality vegetables that are produced.
