Sustainability and micro-farming are at the heart of what we do

The Pigs


Betty and Peggy are the latest addition to The Boat, helping us to reduce waste and ensure nothing from the restaurant is discarded.

The Bees


Liam’s passion for beekeeping has extended beyond a hobby, as our apiary now houses 12 hives. The bees support the plants in the garden through pollination whilst also providing the kitchen with our own, very special honey.

The Chickens


Our girls are what kickstarted the micro-farm. The 24 hens were first to make the land behind the restaurant their home, and they now provide a plentiful supply of eggs to the kitchen daily, whilst also feeding on any trimmings.

The Fish


Inspired by visits to aquatic shops as a child, Liam’s aquaponics project has been a long time in the making – a full eco-system that farms trout and then uses the bi-product to feed and grow crops.

In a totally landlocked county, we can now fish directly from our own land in a city that is furthest from the sea, which we think is pretty cool!

The Plants


Our vegetable beds and polytunnels not only grow native produce that features regularly on the menu, but also allows us to grow our own unique crops just outside the back door. Our favourites are sweet cicely and wasabi.
