Our Approach

Making People’s Lives Better

Our approach is very simple, yet incredibly effective. We want to make people’s lives better every day – that includes our people, customers and suppliers.

For our people, we recognise that a fun, supportive and empowering working environment is important. For our customers, we want to deliver stylish hospitality venues and local food cooked with skill and flair. For our suppliers, we care about long-term, ethical business relations.

Amazing Food Starts With Amazing Ingredients

As a corporate member of Hampshire Fare, we’re passionate about sourcing local ingredients. Sourcing responsibly is incredibly important to us, so we only work with the very best suppliers who share our values – many of whom can be found right here on the south coast.

Ideal Foundation

Raising Over £130,000 for Local Communities

We work with incredibly charities such as The Murray Parish Trust, who support children’s emergency services across the South of England by raising money and awareness to help projects at key trauma centres and enable pioneering research and provide life-saving equipment. In 2014 we began our first project with Community Roots, funding an allotment in Southampton to help people who have experienced drug or alcohol addiction, homelessness or mental health issues, through providing supported volunteering, training and work experience opportunities.
