Combe Grove Food Ethos

With menus devised to aid metabolic health, the majority of our ingredients are sustainably sourced from our own Kitchen Garden. Other ingredients come from local suppliers keeping our food miles to a minimum. Our no dig philosophy in The Kitchen Garden which allows the soil biome to flourish and enables us to grow healthy plants and more nutrient dense vegetables. We are mindful to include nectar-rich planting for pollinators to aid biodiversity.

The Combe Grove Food Ethos


  • Real food, freshly made, not processed or artificial
  • Low carbohydrate, aiming for 15% or fewer carbohydrates in any given meal
  • Natural fats including lean meats, extra virgin olive oil, avocado, nuts and seeds, organic dairy, oily fish, coconut oil
  • Protein rich. Each meal should have protein content. Protein is satiating. It fills us and balances our blood sugar levels. Foods include nuts, seeds, legumes, meat, dairy, eggs, fish, beans and pulses
  • A seasonal rainbow, with diversity and a variety of colours. Plant rich with regards to the nutrients and attractive to the eye
  • Sustainability. Aiming for local produce that is seasonal and where possible organic and free range. Looking further afield at Fairtrade/Fairwild with the lowest pesticide residue possible and foods from Combe Grove’s permitted list that are imported are then offset
  • The food should be delicious and enjoyable
