We are really passionate about catering for as many dietary requirements as we can, including vegan, dairy free and gluten free.
We are always seeking and trying out new recipes and have a comprehensive free from and vegan menu, including breakfasts, sandwiches, hot lunches and plenty of sweet treats.
We've even caught the attention of food blogger Becky Excell, she describes our menu as '3 pages of free from heaven'.
Seasonal & Local
We love to support local businesses and source the best seasonal produce.
We use free range locally supplied eggs, fresh meat sourced from local butchers Millins of Tiptree, and freshly caught fish from the Essex & Suffolk coast supplied by The Little Fish Company in Kelvedon.
Please see our specials board in-store for today’s seasonal dishes.
