Food at Trigonos

What you eat Is as important to us as it is to you

It can be hard to concentrate on the task facing us if there is uncertainty about what we might be given to eat – it’s just natural.

Our food is vegetarian and is of such quality that even dedicated meat eaters can be fully satisfied by it. We achieve this because we understand that if you are not naturally a vegetarian being faced with a meatless diet can seem daunting

Our chefs are skilled at creating really tasty, readily digestible dishes that are always freshly cooked and nutritious. Our emphasis is on fresh and seasonal produce, using home-grown whenever this is possible

They are also very experienced in creatively meeting a wide range of essential dietary needs including vegan, gluten-free and many others relating to significant health issues such food allergies, coeliac disease and the like

“I have never experienced the variety and quality of gluten free meals. It was very liberating to eat without worry and to feel included. It has inspired me to be more varied when cooking gluten free at home”

Growing Our Own
In season we grow a variety of vegetables, fruits and salad stuffs for the table. Our produce is grown without the use of herbicides, insecticides or artificial fertilisers. When we have a glut we make jams and chutneys that are used on the table and are sold in our small shop
