One of the founding stones of Eatdrinksleep is the ethos that we have a role at the heart of the community. Here are some of our thoughts.
  • We want The Old Coastguard to be a local institution. We price our beers well, welcome families and the doors are open all day.
  • Although the towns and villages around us are thinly populated, our local eating market is key to us.  Our menus must demonstrate good value.
  • We try to be a hub of the community.  We host fund raising events for local bodies, make our contribution to village events,  and support local charities.

  • We encourage local suppliers to bring their produce to our kitchen door, although provenance is as much about husbandry and quality as geography.
  • We take very seriously our responsibility for minimising our impact on the wider environment and demand the same of our suppliers.      
  • Most of our team come from the area around us.  We invest in training, giving them specialist qualifications for use throughout their career.
