Sustainability

Sustainable vegan eating

Going vegan (even just for a couple of days a week) is one of the easiest ways to help our planet, reap personal health benefits and improve animal welfare all at the same time.
We offer a delicious selection of vegan main meals, cakes and desserts to prove that a ‘healthy’ can also mean packed with mouth-watering taste and flavour.

Farm fresh and local

We believe in serving fresh honest, homemade food with a menu that changes with the seasons. We work closely with fantastic local producers who provide us with top-quality produce, fresh from the farm, such as Herefordshire bacon, sausages, free-range chicken, vegetables, cheese, apple juice, cider and craft ales.

Our coffee

Illy promote the highest ethics and quality of life for its stakeholders and are the first company to have received the Responsible Supply Process Certification of Sustainability from dnvgl.com

Reuse and recycle

Pick up one of our Illy coffee Keepcups and your first hot drink will be free (plus 20p off all future refills). We’ll also give you a free Coffee & Cake voucher for two. And it doesn’t stop there; reuse one of our sturdy Bill’s Kitchen paper bags when you collect a take-away meal and we will take 20p off your bill.

Nothing goes to waste

At Cafe at All Saints we are socially responsible when it comes to waste.  Our waste managment with veolia.co.uk is now diverting 100% of our café waste away from landfill, to be turned into green energy.

Suppliers

Café at All Saints believes in serving fresh, simple, homemade food, with a menu that changes according to the seasons. The only way we are able to do this is by relying on a network of fantastic local producers who provide us with top-quality produce, fresh from the farm.

Many of our suppliers run their own farm shops, so if you like what you taste, why not pay them a visit?

Here’s a selection:

Neil's YardNeal’s Yard creamery:   We get our crème fraiche and Perroche and Ragstone goats’ cheese from this small dairy near Dorstone, which was originally part of the same company as Neal’s Yard Dairy. They make fresh and mould-ripened cheeses, yoghurts and crème fraiche. Their cows’ milk comes from Tony Norman’s organic farm in Pembridge, and goats’ milk comes from Tim & Richard Barter’s farm near Ashleworth, Gloucestershire. www.nealsyardcreamery.co.uk

Tillington Court Farm provide us with asparagus, strawberries, purple sprouting broccoli and cauliflower. Visit the farm to try out the fishing lakes and mountain boarding (they hosted part of the UK Championships in 2007) or find them at farmers markets in Hereford, Abergavenny, Monmouth and Gloucester. www.courtfarmleisure.co.uk

Bentleys provide us with our apple juice; they are specialist growers of over 12 seasonal varieties of apples, 2 varieties of pears, 9 of plums and 7 varieties of cherries. They are concerned for the environment and care about healthy food; integrating beneficial natural, biological and cultural processes into modern farming practices. castlefruitfarm.co.uk

Our jam, marmalade and chutney comes from Sally’s Pantry , courtesy of Sally Edey. Sally offers a wide range of products made with Herefordshire ingredients, including preserves, pickles, chutneys, home made cakes, scones, pies and quiches.

We source our stout and golden ale from the Wye Valley Brewery , a family run business started in 1985 by former Guinness brewer Peter Amor. They also run two pubs, The Barrels in Hereford and The Rose and Lion in Bromyard, which between them have won Herefordshire CAMRA pub of the year many times. www.wyevalleybrewery.co.uk

TudgeOur smoked bacon, ham, sausages and belly pork come courtesy of Mr Tudge and his free-range Berkshire rare breed pigs. Traditional pig arks are set in a field environment to ensure the pigs have freedom of movement and enjoy a natural existence in the great outdoors! Look out for Mr Tudge at Farmers Markets in Hereford, Ludlow, Leominster, Hereford, Malvern and Abergavenny. Read about Mr Tudge here and at www.tudge-meats.co.uk

DunkertonsOur cider is from Dunkertons , who have made organic cider and perry to Soil Association standards since 1988. Using a traditional press and mill, circa 1930, the cider is made using time honoured methods. Dunkertons are winner of a CAMRA Premona award for best contribution to cider making in Britain.

Our water is from Berrington Spring, situated in the heart of the Herefordshire countryside at Marden. Berrington. Drawn from 35 meters the naturally filtered water from this spring is bottled daily at source in a secure and clean environment. The unique sandstone geology below the spring is responsible for the subtle blend of minerals and the crystal clear water. www.berringtonwater.com

Severn & Wye Smokery provide our smoked salmon, and is is situated between two great salmon rivers on the edge of the Royal Forest of Dean. severnandwye.co.uk

Our free range chicken comes from Springfield Poultry, where the chickens roam free, foraging and grazing from first light to dusk. www.springfieldpoultry.co.uk

One thing that can’t be grown locally are our coffee beans, the backbone of our fabulous cappuccinos. Here we turn to Illy coffee, a company committed to sustainable development as well as unwavering quality. Illy pay a minimum price and a fair income to their growers in the developing world, and run impressive education projects with communities they buy from. Read more on www.illy.com
