Our Fair Profit Guarantee

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010


As your local ethical restaurant we thought we should also be honest about making a fair profit.  You as our customers are amazing to us and we want you to know that we don’t try to exploit you.  We try to make 9 pence for every 1 pound you spend with us and we hope you think that’s fair.  Here’s a breakdown of where every £1 you spend with us goes since we thought you might like to know.  A fair amount for you, a fair amount for our team, a fair amount for our suppliers and a fair amount for us is what we want to achieve.  Your comments are appreciated as always xxx
