Local Produce

Britain has seen an upsurge over the last decade in the use of the finest local produce, much of which is organic. This means that not only is there a growing number of dishes on pub menus that use fresh, healthy ingredients, but it is beneficial for the local economy, too.

You cause the grass to grow for the livestock and plants for man to cultivate, that he may bring forth food from the earth...

The list of industrious local artisans and farmers found throughout the country is impressive, offering fare ranging from bread, pastries and dairy products through to meats, preserves and honey, and some using recipes following centuries-old traditions. Mass-proOnly the freshest ingredients pass the testduction and overseas imports are being challenged by small organic enterprises, whose specialities are recognised for their nutritious value and provenance. All of our Great Country Pubs have been chosen for their ability to reap the benefits that come from using local producers.

At the Queen’s Head in East Clandon they believe that food should be made from only the freshest ingredients our local land has to offer; the chef will invent a new dish when there is a little something special amongst the produce delivery.

Some of the fresh vegetables and herbs used at the Coach and Horses (Rotherwick), are grown either in their own garden, or otherwise supplied by local smallholders and allotment gardeners in an innovative barteriHastings Fisherman with his catch of the dayng scheme.

Having gained much praise for its locally sourced food, the Cat Inn’s (West Hoathly) Chef Max Leonard uses these ingredients to create exceptional flavours – he once bought a whole Berkshire pig and used every part in the exciting dishes on the menu.

Chef Dom’s cooking at The Roebuck in Laughton (Sussex) reflects local and seasonal produce, and the full-cooked breakfast is particularly memorable for his home-made granola.
