OUR FUTURE PLANS:

Our main future plan for our business is to be a lot more ‘green’ and environmentally friendly. In the next few years, we are looking to considerably reduce our environmental impact through green best-practices. The main areas we will be looking into revolve around reducing waste/recycling more, saving energy and cutting down on water usage

 

We would like to cut the amount of plastic we use as a business, including product packaging and drinks bottles. We have already begun to start this process by swapping plastic carrier bags to brown paper ones.

 

To reduce general waste, we aim to recycle as much as we can from our shop, restaurant and staff area bins.  

 

We have just completed a complete re-vamp to our upstairs restaurant. We have new furniture, which gives the restaurant a cosier and warmer feel. Making it more suitable for locals to use as a hub for group meetings and friendly catch ups.  

LOCAL TRADES PEOPLE:

We use local trades people for work on the building both exterior & interior.

  • Peak Blinds: new roman blinds made & fitted in our restaurant

  • R. Stone Joinery: work on our shop counter 

  • Darwell Roofing
