On Saturday I was introduced to the Duke of Cambridge, a fantastic pub in Islington, London. There are thousands of pubs in London but this one is different. It is supposedly Britain’s first and only certified organic pub.
The atmosphere, the service, the food, the drinks, everything was delicious. But my favourite part wasn’t the meal at all. On each table they have a small menu which outlines the different social and environmental policies the pub follows and when they were started. These policies cover all sorts of topics, from sourcing/procurement to chemical use, sustainable fish purchasing, food miles to name but a few.
I thought this was a really interesting way of educating their customers about sustainability and letting them know exactly what makes them an organic and sustainable business, right there while they are serving you.
