The Baker and The Bottleman
True to Simon Rogan’s ethos, sustainability is at the very heart of the concept - our bakers and chefs produce all the food from scratch in-house, observe the seasons and work with only the best local suppliers. We use traditional artisanal techniques and flavours giving a strong British heritage to each baked item.
Our aim is to minimise any packaging and encourage reusable bags, and coffee cups and think about every unnecessary item that we don’t require. All our packaging is at minimum recyclable or compostable, if not made from organic/recycled cotton.
We also aim to source most of our ingredients from the best local and small-scale producers. We avoid food waste at any cost by using seasonal produce that is grown or made locally by mindful farmers and artisans.
