A great treat this weekend to have our vegetable garden mentioned in the Mail on Sunday!
As holders of the Peak District Environmental Quality Mark, our commitment to the Peak District is shown through our philosophy to use quality ingredients sourced from local Peak District businesses wherever possible.
This year, we've brought things a little closer to home with the introduction of a newly established vegetable garden. Darren Goodwin, our Head Chef, expressed the value that the vegetable garden brings, “The vegetable garden has been a great project so far. To be able to go out, pick the produce and then serve the vegetables to our guests just a few hours later has been fantastic”.
So far, the garden has yielded courgettes, baby carrots, broad beans and fennel, to name a few. These are served alongside other locally-sourced products such as meat from White Peak Farm Butchers in Tissington and eggs from Richard Bennett’s egg farm in Thornhill. Coming to the end of the first year’s season, the venture has proven viable and so our guests will hopefully be enjoying home-grown produce for years to come.
