Championing food for mind, community and planet

Our mission is simple: Mindful food for thriving minds.

Providing fresh, seasonal, and good quality food and drink, that nourishes, comforts and inspires mind and body. We help all our customers be the best they can be, achieving more for themselves, their families and communities.

Places to eat & drink

Staff wellbeing

Happy staff means a happy service, which means a happy you.

All our staff are paid the living wage and trained to the highest standards, with ongoing health, safety and hygiene training.

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.

Making a positive difference to the environment.
