Chicken is from Yorkshire higher welfare Red Tractor, beef is Aberdeen Angus cross-reared near Scotland’s Ayrshire coast, and pork is from pigs reared in a completely free-range environment in the South Downs. Fish on the menu is from ASC (Aquaculture Stewardship Council) approved farms in Scotland and the British Coast.
