Brawn work within the season and with an eager eye for provenance. They try to work as much as possible with local producers and suppliers. The food is honest and simple with a respect for tradition.

 The majority of the list comprises of wines sourced from small growers who work sustainably, organically or bio-dynamically in the vineyard and with minimal interventions in the winery.
