Food & Beverage

Local Suppliers

We aim to have seasonal menus that provide premium locally sourced produce. By working with suppliers in our community, we are helping reduce our carbon footprint by cutting down on food miles and supporting local businesses. It also helps our customers experience and enjoy the taste and flavours of London and the surrounding area.
