At the Pandora, we pride ourselves on supporting local suppliers and producers, be it locally caught fish, organic veg grown just up the road or fantastic wines produced in this region. We stock no fewer than EIGHT local wines on our extensive wine list.
The British consumer has spent many years ridiculing wines made within our own isles but the truth is, English (and Welsh) wine production has come on leaps and bounds over recent years and the quality keeps getting better and better. We now boast over 400 producers with an annual production of 2 million bottles, even the French are trying to buy our land so we must be doing something right!
