A note on Sustainability;

Here at FSK, we strive to create and maintain a sustainable business as many ways as possible. 

Our core suppliers have been sourced based on their ethics, quality of produce, locality and sustainability.

 Locally baked bread, locally farmed potatoes and veg, ice cream from Cheshire cows, local free range eggs and always high quality meats from the British Isles farms that ethically raise and rear animals to the highest standards.

We use home grown produce from the FSK garden throughout the year and save coffee grinds to fertilise our soil. We have increased our plant based offering and ensure the bulk of our menu is made in house wherever possible.

We encourage diners to take left overs home and work hard to keep our food waste to a minimum.

All our disposables are now 100% compostable and recyclable and we encourage customers to bring their own containers for take away food. We recycle all waste including glass plus our used cooking oil and food waste are converted into green energy such as biodiesel.  

Sustainability is a day to day process and as such, we are always working and exploring ways to meet our goals.
