Introducing our new chef Lucy….
Lucy Johnson joins us from the Wulf and Lamb, having also been Head Chef for the ‘Real Junk Food Project‘, among others, in Sheffield. Some of you may have enjoyed her food at one of our Veganuary Hornbeam Nights supper-clubs. Check out her fantastic vegan cooking blog Edible Ethics .

She joins Frankie Ebdon who has cooked at the Hornbeam for over a year and between them they are cooking up some wonderful treats.

Come and meet Lucy, Frankie and others in the Hornbeam Team on our Earth Day Open Day and enjoy good food and company. We’ll have some wonderful treats for you to sample.
Eat, Drink and Celebrate with us! Hope to see you soon.

Food Standard Agency: Hornbeam is excellent 4 out of 5

We are proud to say that Hornbeam's rating by the Food Standards Agency is 4.
We are proud to say that Hornbeam’s rating by the Food Standards Agency is 4.

We are delighted to inform customers that our food hygiene rating is an excellent 4.

However, PLEASE NOTE: The Hornbeam’s rating is incorrect on the Food Standard Association’s own website. See email transcript below from the Food Hygiene Agency to Jenny Parker, Cafe Manager at the Hornbeam cafe. From Anne Heeney the food standards inspector back in Feb:

‘Dear Kate & Jenny
I’m sorry that there has been a problem with your Food Hygiene Rating rescore failing to upload on the system.

I confirm that I visited the Hornbeam Café on 5th November 2015 and the rating was raised from 1 to 4 because hygiene conditions had improved. I am making enquiries as to why this happened and will ensure that the correct rating is displayed on the website as soon as possible.

I apologise for any inconvenience this has caused.
Regards’

Feel free to come and visit and chat to Jenny, Charlie, Kat or any of our cafe staff at any time about our kitchen practices – we know you’ll be impressed!
