Here at The Bush Inn we feel proud to support local suppliers. All our meat is fully traceable from your plate to the farm upon which it was produced and the majority is sourced from local farms.
As organic farmers ourselves, we understand the importance of extensive farming practices which allow a high level of animal welfare and a natural growth rate resulting in a fuller flavour. All beef animals are hung for three weeks and lamb and pork one to two weeks which further enhances the flavour. We believe that these actions coupled with the farm and pub policy of using traditional breeds with a higher percentage of fat leads to some of the highest quality meat served anywhere.
Our butcher, Shane Moore from Kilkhampton, a beef and sheep farmer himself, understands the importance of local consistent quality. From our renowned 21 day matured succulent steaks to Olde Cornish sausages delivered daily, he plays an important role in the success of the Bush Inn.
The Bush Inn has a fabulous view of the rugged Cornish coastline. We aim to serve only line caught sea bass from these waters. From May to October you may witness freshly caught bass being delivered by Morwenstow fishermen. Celtic Fish and Game supply all other seafood, which enables us to supply fresh fish from Cornish shores.
In our rural location we aim to offer game throughout the year. From a haunch of wild venison to a brace of pheasant our suppliers do their best to keep up with demand.
The Wickett family from Stibb provide fresh free range chicken, duck and turkey, throughout the year. The flavour and succulence achieved we believe is the result of the birds natural behavioural needs being met. We are fortunate to be supplied with organic eggs, again all free range, by Mike and Mary Thompson from Bradworthy. On inspection we were impressed with the level of husbandry and general well being of their poultry.
The Kitchen Garden
Although still in its infancy, the fruit, vegetable and herb garden is proving a valuable asset. Most days we use produce from the garden ranging from the freshest salads to the sweetest strawberries.
