OUR SUPPLIERS IN OUR FOOD EMPORIUM
COOK was founded in 1997 by Edward Perry and Dale Penfold, who had the mad idea of trying to cook and sell frozen ready meals that would be made like you would at home. COOK check their ingredients as they come in; preparing them; cooking; making pastry; assembling the different components of the finished dish; freezing; packing and labelling. Unlike most food companies, they don’t believe in using machines to do jobs that people can do better. They run on the passion, care and teamwork of their people and great tasting meals.
Our butcher sources all of its meat from their carefully selected suppliers. All the beef is dry aged on the bone in our maturation fridges here at Beckworth for extra flavour and tenderness. Any cut can be prepared specifically to your requirements and great advice on what to buy and how to cook it comes as standard! There’s a fantastic range of quality pies and sausages as well as cooked meat and cheeses from the deli. Their pre-packed meat is prepared by hand daily at their counter and ideal to just pick up and go.

HAMBLETON BAKERY Rutland
In September 2008, Julian Carter and Tim Hart opened Hambleton Bakery to produce top quality traditionally made bread with the magical flavour that can be conjured from unadulterated flour, salt and water using the slow, traditional processes that made the bread that fed our ancestors. Today they continue to build their network of wholesale customers and to spread the word of traditional artisan bread and cake making.

POT BELLY BREWERY Kettering

It is a 10 Barrel (2888 pints) plant and commenced brewing in February 2005. It was set up by Toni Hooper and Glenn Morris with a view to produce a quality range of Real Ales that would appeal to both established drinkers and realizing the trend of recent years – those near to being converted from lesser offerings of the continental type.
