Our green policy
As well as individual health we also want to support planetary health!
We have taken great measures to recycle as much as we can and use energy saving practices such as switching off most of our appliances at night.
Our entire takeaway packaging range is biodegradable and/or recycled. Even our straws are made from corn starch. We are proud to think that we do not burden the world with even more non-compostable rubbish!
All our cleaning products are eco-friendly and bio-degradable. Our toilet paper and napkins are 100% recycled.
Busy day? Too tired to cook a healthy meal? Don't want a supermarket ready meal with all those additives and preservatives? Want to take a tasty meal to work with you? We have the answer!!
Let us do the cooking and you enjoy a deliciously healthy meal in your own home (or office). Order a number of our home-cooked specials at a discount price (minimum of 4 portions per dish - please supply your own containers). These meals can be frozen or kept for 2/3 days in the fridge for you to heat as required. Please give at least 2 days notice if ordering these meals. A sample of the dishes available (which can be vegan/gluten-free if required):
Stuffed peppers with rice, vegetables and cheese
Pumpkin & red lentil goulash
Mixed bean tagine with coriander and apricot
Aubergine & mushroom Shepherdess Pie
Cakes, hand-made truffles or chocolates for that special occasion can also be made to order.
As with all our food, vegan, gluten-free or raw options are always available. Go on, treat yourself or a friend, great for birthdays, special occasions or just because 'you're worth it!'
And a reminder that our two beautiful studios are available to hire for a variety of events including parties for children and/or adults.
Entertainment upstairs in the Lotus Room then eat, drink and be more merry downstairs in the Jasmine Room. We can cater for up to 40 people and could suggest possible entertainers for your event - singers, DJs, conjurors as you wish.
