Sustainability

  • We make a huge effort to make our business as sustainable as possible. 
  • In the last 8 years we have replaced over half of our fridges and freezers. 
  • We use energy saving light bulbs throughout the pub. 
  • We recycle all our glass, plastic and tins. 
  • We use only biodegradable take away containers. 
  • We have fitted taps which switch off automatically as we found people kept leaving them running. 
  • We have had a new boiler fitted in the last 5 years to a more energy efficient one. 
  • We have all our cooking oil collected by our supplier who uses it to power their delivery fleet. 
  • We use many local businesses to source our products, some of which drop goods off on their way home meaning zero food miles! 
    • Sharpham Vineyard 
    • Heron Valley Juices and cider 
    • Durrants Butchers, Stokely Farm Shop; to name a few.. 
  • Some of our fish travels metres by foot, from the beach directly infront of the pub straight to our kitchens, therefore having zero food miles 
  • We ensure all of our scallops are diver caught, never dredged!
  • We have stopped using sachets of sauce to cut down on single use plastic
  • We only use biodegradable or recyclable packaging for our takeaways.
  • The bar stocks only paper straws.
  • We recycle all cardboard, plastics, tins and glass.
  • We have changed our salad to offer seasonal local produce.
  • We are selling re-usable Start Bay Inn coffee cups.
  • We support our local beach cleans by offering a free cuppa or ice cream.
