We are committed to running a modern and sustainable business. Our sustainability policy ensures compliance with environmental legislation and conservation of natural resources by responsible use of energy and water. This, together with a commitment to purchase as much as we can from companies based in Cornwall, whenever possible, maintains food quality with minimum impact on the local environment.
The additional benefits for other South West businesses, by purchasing locally, are support of the local economy and provision of sustainable local employment.
Go to the Suppliers List on this website to see full details. Their contact details are supplied in the hope you may also choose to support them.
To maintain awareness of the local environmental issues, we are members of CoaST. For details go to: www.coastproject.co.uk
We work closely with other local businesses to our mutual benefit, including cross merchandising our services with local B&B’s, holiday cottages, wine merchants and local taxi firms. We welcome any ideas from guests which may help us be more environmentally friendly, while not affecting our diner’s enjoyment
Reducing Waste and Recycling.
Our style of menu enables us to keep waste to a minimum. We then recycle as much as possible any, unavoidable, waste. Initiatives employed include:
Recycling ink cartridges, batteries and energy saving light bulbs.
Paper, cardboard, bottles, tins and some plastics are collected separately and recycled via the Council Recycling collection service.
Composting of food waste
Staff are encouraged to conserve water, turn off taps to avoid unnecessary waste, economy cycles used on dish washing machines.
Email is the primary method of written communication to save paper.We use electronic methods of marketing communication such as mail chimp e-newsletters to keep in touch with our customers.
Supporting our Local Economy and Community
Regular fundraising events have enabled us to support local Cornish charities.
For more information about our Charity Policy and current charitable projects, go to Charities on this website.
We consider ourselves a training ground for young, local people, who start here with little or no work experience and leave with transferrable skills for future employment, plus an increased personal confidence.
We are passionate about sharing this experience with our diners, at the same time minimising our impact on the environment by our sustainability policy, use of local produce, energy efficiency and employment of local people we make a positive contribution to the local economy.
