Local Devon Suppliers
How lucky we are, in East Devon, to be surrounded by such a bounty of splendiferous produce! Our menus change every day, to embrace what’s good, fresh and, in many instances, growing in our kitchen garden. Our esteemed chefs are jolly proud to work closely with a team of fantastic local suppliers and producers. Wherever possible, all our meat and dairy produce come from close to home – we even have our own free range chickens and a drove of pigs! What we cannot fish, forage or pick on-site is sourced locally…
Complete Meats was established 25 years ago by Shaun Vining. This award winning, family run Devon business has three shops in East Devon (Axminster, Chard and Honiton) as well as a thriving wholesale butchery. Complete Meats is dedicated to sourcing quality meat from the West Country and the UK.
Forest Produce is based in Honiton and is now in it’s 9th year of supplying chefs with top-notch quality produce. From fresh truffles, caviar and foie gras to salad leaves, fresh micro herbs, locally made ice cream and chocolate. They also supply over 100 different cheeses, many sourced direct from producers all over Devon and Cornwall as well as a huge range of continental cheese.
Kingfisher Brixham was founded in 1984 by Nick Summersby after he had successfully started selling fish to local restaurants and hotels directly from Brixham market. The company quickly grew and expanded and by the early 1990s we were delivering fresh Brixham fish as far afield as North Yorkshire.
The Kingfisher name has become a Kitemark for fresh quality seafood throughout England. They are committed to supplying fish from sustainable sources across the West Country including Brixham, Plymouth, Looe and Newlyn.
DEER PARK KITCHEN GARDEN
The Deer Park kitchen garden couldn’t be where it is today without the dedication and passion from our gardening team, and our community gardeners! From squashes, Heritage tomatoes and potatoes, to herbs, beans and apples, the garden is producing a huge amount of produce…which heads straight into the trusty hands of our chefs! We even produce our own honey and apple juice!
