With more and more people interested in where their food comes from before they eat it, these five restaurants and eateries have done all the work for you by championing local, British farming.
British and local produce are making their way on to the menu’s of many popular pubs and restaurants across the UK, and for many chefs, the ingredients they use come from only a few miles away.
Many dishes are also now seasonal, meaning they are always fresh and ever changing.
We have some of the best ingredients from some of the best farmers and it is important to champion produce grown and reared here - whether it’s where you shop or where you choose to eat, it is a conscious decision and one that keeps farmers in their livelihoods.
