The Duke of Cambridge, located in Islington only a few minutes walk from Angel tube station, is the UK’s first and only gastropub to be certified by the Soil Association.
It serves delicious organic food and drink, carefully sourced from independent producers, while keeping their environmental impact and food miles low. 80% of their fresh produce comes from the Home Counties, they never airfreight anything.
Their menu is best described as hearty, rustic British food with Mediterranean influences and with two meat, two fish and two vegetarian dishes on the menu every day there is always something to suit everyone.
Their menu changes twice a day and is created according to what is at the peak of its freshness and flavour. Their food is always seasonal so you won’t find fresh tomatoes on the menu in the winter or parsnips in the summer, and all food is made at the pub – from the ice cream to the bread and pickles.
Their fish buying policy is approved by the Marine Conservation Society and they buy Marine Stewardship Council certified seafood where possible. Like the SEALIFE London Aquarium they have signed up to the Sustainable Fish City pledge.
Produce comes from small, independent, local farmers with the highest standards of animal welfare and the chefs ensure that nothing goes to waste; so for example instead of buying individual cuts of pork (which is costly and wasteful) they buy a whole carcass and use every part of the animal.
They are ‘obsessed with having the lowest carbon footprint possible’ and therefore reuse and recycle wherever possible and their electricity is wind and solar generated.
