Essential, a Bristol-based workers’ co-operative, provides us with a wide range of fantastic ethically-produced ingredients, from organic beans and chickpeas to Fairtrade coffee and chocolate.
We joined the Bristol Pound almost as soon as we started trading, while it was still a very new project. We love having people pay for their lunch in lovely Bristolian banknotes or using TXT2PAY! And it ensures that any money you spend at The Spotless Leopard will go straight back into the local economy.
Our fruit and veg. comes from Four Seasons, a family-run organic wholesaler in Bristol. Most of what they bring us is locally sourced and all of it is great quality!
The Severn Project in Bristol grows our beautiful salad leaves and fresh herbs using organic methods on their urban farms. Their purpose is to support people with mental health problems, offending backgrounds and those recovering from drug and alcohol misuse.
