The Farmer learns from buds unfolding,
From each tight leaf unfurled,
That his own heart, expanding,
Is one with all the world.
Scotland is blessed with an abundance of local produce grown and shared all over the world. At the GMB we are passionate about sourcing both classic and new ingredients straight from the farm gate. Mindful of the environment that we live in, we try wherever possible to use local suppliers and are dedicated to using fresh seasonal produce.
We are dedicated to using only reputable suppliers that we personally know and trust. We regularly meet all our suppliers and make sure they share our strong values and ethics.
We are a proud member of the Scotch Beef Club, member restaurants are proud to serve Scotch Beef PGI. With traceability and unique assurance which begins on the farm of birth, Scotch Beef is high on quality and taste.
