OUR SUPPLIERS TEST_edited.jpg

FRESH, LOCAL & INDEPENDENT

Throughout our journey from a pop-up takeaway to where we are now, it has been our mission to source the best and most responsible ingredients available whilst establishing close working relationships with other like minded local businesses.

By using local independent suppliers, we are proud to be able to offer full traceability of the produce we use and to ensure we always source the freshest and highest quality seasonal ingredients.

Quality food requires quality ingredients and we are extremely proud to be working with all of our suppliers to showcase a wide range of their sustainably sourced produce throughout our menu.

We are pleased to shine a light on some of these local legends who we are more than grateful to be working with.

ALEX GOOCH BAKERY

BREAD & BAKES

Over the years Alex has won multiple awards having grown his '1 man bakery' into a crack team of dedicated bakers. His bread and pastries are skillfully crafted using organic ingredients and traditional methods  to produce the highest quality breads and bakes you will find.

With an emphasis on sustainable farming methods, their organic ingredients are carefully sourced by the team who work closely with their local suppliers.


During each bake a long fermentation process is used to encourage pre-digestion of the grains to deliver nutritious and delicious fresh bread and pastries. Yum!

HARD LINES COFFEE

COFFEE

Hard lines are a small batch Welsh coffee roastery and café based around the corner in Cardiff. They focus on roasting and brewing delicious sustainably sourced coffee. Like us, they like to keep things seasonal, which means there is always something new and exciting around the corner. 

We were drinking hard lines coffee long before One O’clock Gate was established and in our own, humble opinion, they roast the best beans around. It’s a pleasure to work with the team and to be able to offer their produce throughout our range of freshly prepared barista coffees.

TY-CAWS

CHEESE

Owen and the team at Ty-Caws work extremely hard to carefully select the very best of British cheese whilst supporting both local farmers and cheesemakers.

A self confessed foodie and cheese lover with over 18 years experience, Owen really does know a thing or two about cheese. The selection of cheese supplied to us by Ty-caws changes seasonally to ensure the cheese supplied is served by us at it's absolute best.

CKJ FOOD STORE

KOREAN & JAPANESE

Similar to some of our other suppliers, our relationship with Jason and the team at CKJ began long before we opened One O’clock Gate.

Naturally many of these ingredients are not produced locally, however, we take great pride in working with this local family run business who do an amazing job sourcing and supplying the finest authentic ingredients.


If you are ever in the Cathays area, we highly recommend paying Jason a visit!

The Micro Greengrocer is a small, sustainable urban vertical farm located in the heart of Cardiff.  The range of tasty, nutritious micro‑greens are grown in a controlled environment using only organic seeds, local peat-free organic composts and are harvested without the use of fertilisers or pesticides.

WINE FIEND

WINE

We love working with Dean at Wine Fiend, he supplies us with a great range of low intervention, biodynamic and organic wines. As with all of our suppliers, Wine Fiend are a locally based company and their retail store can be found just a stone’s throw away in Canton.

Dean has over 15 years of experience in the wine industry and works hard to select a wide variety of great tasting wines from small sustainable producers so naturally we are chuffed to have him on board.


Whilst our wine list may not look like your typical line up, having been cleverly selected to match our menu and venue, we're sure if you don't recognise them, then you certainly won't forget them!
