Start as you mean to go on

New Year's Resolution

Did you get around to making any new year’s resolutions, with all the celebrations going on? We’ve broken some already with leftover mince pies and cheeky glasses of wine to start the year!

One resolution we’d love you to make and keep this year though, is to think about farm animal welfare – we’re a nation of animal lovers after all! Maybe you already choose higher-welfare meat, fish and eggs when you shop (we hope you do!) but what about making a real effort this year to think about where your food comes from when you eat out. There are lots of lovely pubs and great restaurants serving higher welfare food. Here are a few ideas to start you off…

Killerton House, Exeter

Killerton is a beautiful 6,400 acre estate where local food is an integral part of a visitor’s experience. The daily home cooked menus served in the stylishly refurbished Stables café and Killerton Kitchen restaurant are shaped by high welfare seasonal produce.

Roast, London

Sick and tired of delicious roast dinners after the festive period? Nope, nether are we! Visit Borough Market and you’ll find Roast and experience gorgeous British food, fine seasonal produce and classical cooking, all with ethics in mind.

Calke Park, Derby

Nature meets history at Calke Park. Kids would love the wildlife walk and you can also discover some of the oldest trees in Europe. The restaurant serves freshly prepared local produce, including meat reared from the RSPCA Freedom Food approved estate.

The Feathers Inn, Northumberland

This lovely pub has great ale, tasty food, picturesque surroundings and RSPCA Good Business Awards! You can warm up in front of a huge fire and then enjoy a good meal on a cold day.
