Food & Drink
Watershed has an ethical, sustainable approach to food. Oliver Pratt, our Executive Chef, has worked with Phil Haughton, founder of the Better Food Company, to develop our Plot to Plate policy.
What does this mean? It means that we can produce and offer a healthy, balanced menu while supporting the local economy, reducing our carbon footprint and paying the highest respect to the welfare of producers, animals and the quality of the land.
Our food is full of flavour and goodness and sourced from people we know and trust in the South West.
- We get our meat from Powells of Olveston, who enjoy an excellent reputation for the traceability of their food. They only buy from a carefully-chosen group of local farmers so they can guarantee the origins of our produce. Powells are committed to supplying ethical meat of the highest quality and can guarantee where it has come from, whether it is their lamb, pork (including sausages), chicken, duck, or beef.

- We get our fruit and vegetables from Kidners Organic and also The Community Farm, set in the beautiful Chew Valley between Bristol and Bath, where they grow organic vegetables on 22 acres of lush land. Their aim is to grow vegetables and fruit in the most sustainable way possible and to link their diverse membership and customers to where their food is produced. Find out more about The Community Farm.
Owner of The Community Farm Luke Hassell says:
"The Community Farm is a project that is very close to my heart and one that I am determined to make a success. The future of food and farming is an exciting prospect and if we can involve the community and enable local people to enjoy fresh organic produce whilst being directly linked to the place in which it grows, then the future generations may grow up respecting these issues far more than we do now.”
- Our freshly caught fish comes from Cornish fresh fish supplier Wing of St Mawes. Run by Rob Wing, Wing of St Mawes actively supports ethical sourcing and involvement in protecting and regenerating our Cornish fish stocks. Wing of St Mawes works closely with our chefs here to supply us with weekly news updates advising us on availability, stocks and origin.
