We take great pride in ensuring our guests can enjoy the highest quality food and drink, whilst representing excellent value. At the same time, as a conservation charity, we also think it’s extremely important that everything we offer has as little negative impact on our planet as possible. With this in mind we have taken the following measures:
Single Use Plastic
We only offer drinks in cans, glass bottles or tetra cartons. Single use plastic is a major issue which has been highlighted by zoos and conservationists and now accepted by government. We encourage our guests to embrace this stance by supporting us and, where plastic bottles are in use, reuse them wherever possible. We have provided drinking water stations to enable you to do just this.
Where possible we avoid any products which contain palm oil. Where it is present, sustainable palm oil is used.
All of the fish served is certified as MSC sustainably sourced fish.
All of our draught cold drinks all contain less than the 8% sugar threshold as do most the drinks served in cans or glass. Pepsi is still available for guests who choose to purchase where sugar tax will apply.
Reducing Our Carbon Footprint
Wherever possible we source our ingredients locally. Realistically we are unable to do this for everything so for all remaining food and drinks, we source from one single supplier serviced from a hub.
