Keep it Local

As much as possible, we try to source our food and drink from local suppliers:

  • Seafood from Fruits de Mer in Broadstairs who have 15 boats going out from Ramsgate to catch the lobsters we serve throughout the summer (6 miles)
  • Meat from The Butcher of Brogdale in Faversham who believe in sourcing meat from local and reputable suppliers to ensure excellent, traceable provenance (26 miles)
  • Coffee supplied by Real Deal Roasters in Deal who only roast carefully selected single origin coffee beans and all their coffees are pure (no added flavours), some are fair trade (or even beyond fair trade) and some are organic (16 miles)
  • Teas are personally hand-blended for us by Rosie Lea Tea in Broadstairs (3 miles)
  • Time & Tide beer on tap from Eastry, near Deal (12 miles)
  • Curious IPA, Curious Brew lager fermented with champagne yeast, and Curious Apple cider made with 100% pure Kent apple juice from the Chapeldown Winery in Tenterden (50 miles)

  • Kingsdown Sparkling Pressés are made from sparkling spring water from the Kingsdown source on the North Downs and meticulously sourced juices (17 miles)
  • Vela Vodka is crafted in small batches by the Copper Rivet Distillery in Chatham, using hand selected early harvest Kentish wheat, barley and rye, which is carefully distilled using chalky Kent water before being charcoal filtered for our vodka (45 miles).
  • Anno Gin from the Anno Distillery in Marden, Kent, incorporates luscious local botanicals synonymous with the idyllic Kent Countryside, such as hops, samphire and local florals to create an outstanding super-smooth gin with a unique flavour of Kent (50 miles)
  • Ice cream from Taywells, created in 2006 to utilise surplus fruit from farms in Kent and turn it into something special that is free from all artificial additives, colours and stabilisers and almost all are gluten free (56 miles)
