Food for the mind and body

The Base menu offering is crafted to include a diverse array of wholesome, nutrient-rich dishes that cater to various dietary preferences and needs, in line with the WELL Standard's concept of Nourishment. From seasonal salads using only the freshest local produce to hearty daily specials prioritising plant-based recipes.

We strive to prioritise locally-sourced ingredients, creating partnerships with local suppliers who are part of our Northern Larder to help reduce our carbon footprint and also ensure freshness in our produce. Some of our suppliers include Neighbourhood Coffee and Brew Tea.

We also encourage hydration, which is why we offer a station for refreshing infused waters as well as having a range of herbal teas, natural soft drinks and health shots.

Nourishment goes beyond what's on the plate; it's about creating a sense of community and educating guests to make informed choices about their health and wellbeing.

We regularly run community events to bring together people and provide a space where they can unwind and relax, while enjoying fresh, homemade food.
