We offer 3 different milk alternatives – almond, soya and oat.

Birchall teas, a family-run producer with Rainforest Alliance Certification and plastic-free, glue-free tea bags.

We use as little as plastic as possible and recycle as much as we can.

Many of our wines are organic, vegan or vegetarian.
