Grown in the world-famous Yorkshire Triangle – a 9 square mile area between Wakefield, Morley and Rothwell. Yorkshire rhubarb is famous around the world, not only for the quality of this superb fruit but also for the versatility of its use. Used in our delicious crumble on our pudding menu and in our chutneys.
The Nutbourne tomatoes are really special and we think they are possibly the best tomatoes in Britain… They taste so very, very good and are also grown pesticide-free, preferring biological pest control. Bees are used to pollinate the tomatoes and blight is avoided by the mammoth winter task of completely stripping and scrubbing out the glasshouses every winter to ensure no mould builds up in the cold months. This means the crops are generally consistently fabulous quality through careful management rather than resorting to chemical treatments. Gary and Jenny have been growing tomatoes at Nutbourne since 1978. Every year they introduce some new varieties and usually grow around 30 different tomatoes – diversely different in taste, size, colour and acidity.
Norfolk Wild Garlic
All of our wild garlic has been foraged by Martin Denny over on the North Norfolk broads. Chopped down and mixed through our butter and pestos to give us some lovely seasonal garnishes.
