The Holmes Chapel community
Suppliers & Community
Our suppliers are at the heart of what Flat Cap is proud of, sourcing the very best seasonal produce, championing local suppliers and working with farmers and butchers to support the local community. These suppliers help to create the very best of British cuisine. At Flat Cap we believe our responsibility extends beyond our employees and guests and into the communities in which we operate. In addition to our hotels’ individual engagement into socially responsible initiatives that meet the specific needs of their local community, Flat Cap Hotels also have a corporate social responsibility programme.
This programme is lived by all employees, whether at a corporate level or within one of our individual hotels. We aim to operate as a keystone of the community and to champion our local suppliers by using locally sourced ingredients in our menus and helping local businesses to grow and thrive through facilitating networking and development programmes.
Our community is an incredibly important and cherished part of the Flat Cap group, they are what drive us forward and their support is unwavering. We are passionate about giving back to the local community in several ways, from hosting free family events to charitable endeavours. Flat Cap Hotels has been partnered with The Savage Foundation, a grassroots football club supporting young talent and creating a safe space for children to play. We also support The Christies charity which provides life-sustaining treatment for many cancer patients in the area, support for their families and the ability to conduct further research into new treatments. Our most recent charitable partner, the East Cheshire Hospice provides incredible palliative care and comfort for patients across Cheshire. We are proud to have raised over £27,000 for our charities in recent years and hope to continue the incredible work we’ve already done.
Our Local Suppliers
Here at Flat Cap Hotels, we are proud to champion local suppliers and fantastic, locally sourced ingredients, from eggs to veg, meat to fish all of our ingredients are sourced within 20 miles of our properties. From countryside to coast we are certain our seasonal menus serve your tastebuds the very best of British ingredients. Flat Cap focus on supporting local suppliers as they are the pillars of the community.
Tea From The Manor - James
Tea from the Manor was one of our first suppliers and his story is very special indeed. After serving in the British Army alongside the Gurkhas on the Indo-Nepalese border, James discovered a passion for the tea leaf harvest. He then started a small supply chain between himself and the tea farmers that he had served alongside and started up Tea from the Manor. Tea from the Manor is a tried and true family owned business, a small supply chain and no middle man ensuring the farmers receive the fairest price for their product. James not only supplies Flat Cap but over a hundred venues across the UK and has over 96 varieties of tea and with 20 years of experience, he really knows his stuff! We our proud to have James as one of our suppliers and to watch his business grow.
Established in 1856 in the heart of Morecambe, family-owned Althams Butchers have worked hard over the centuries to deliver the finest quality cuts of meat. They supply Flat Cap Hotels with our incredible melt-in-the-mouth steaks, organic, free-range chicken breast and much more. Althams are now in their fifth generation of butchery and have been serving the local community ever since they opened their doors in 1856. Flat Cap Hotels is proud to partner with such an established supplier and support local farmers in the process. James and Rick now manage the family business and have been working there for over 20 years, meaning their knowledge of meat is second to none!
MyFish is a family-owned business, established by Gary Apps over 10 years ago, with a passion for providing the finest seafood from coastal suppliers up and down the British coastline, sourcing many of the items from local fisheries and sustainable sea fishers. Gary wanted to provide seafood that could be provided wholesale without compromising on quality. Gary and his excellent team only source seasonal fish, which supports Flat Caps commitment to providing the highest quality seasonal ingredients.
Amato, the family-owned food supplier was established thirty years ago by Bob and Delores Amato, providing incredible Mediterranean ingredients from the heart of Manchester, just a stones throw from the Flat Cap properties. Since then, they have expanded to source an incredible selection of international ingredients and of course, returning to their Italian roots whenever they can. Their knowledge of fine ingredients is why Flat Cap keenly supports this supplier and helps to create their innovative, carefully curated seasonal menus.
