The majority of produce used in Chef Matt’s kitchen is from small local suppliers. We work with the best farmers, butchers, greengrocers and fishermen in the region to ensure the ingredients we use are as local and as good as they can possibly get.

He’s also mindful of his carbon footprint and chose to use induction hobs rather than gas.
