What we're all about
Our ingredients come from sustainable sources. We believe in ethical food sourcing; our meat comes from animals that were treated well and had happy, healthy lives; we grow lots of our fruit and vegetables ourselves, and source the rest from local growers and suppliers. We believe in free-range, fair trade, shopping locally, working with the seasons, environmentally-positive farming, saving water, and minimising waste.
The well-being of our guests and our colleagues, is central to everything we do. We believe in the power of food to heal, nourish and strengthen the body and the mind, and create our dishes and menus with this in mind. We offer a calm, supportive, welcoming and educational working environment for our team, in which development, pride, achievement, positivity and fun are key to every role. Without our happy, lovely team, there is no Roots. We also love a bit of community spirit.
Roots Deli and Salad Bar is a local hub. Exceedingly family-friendly, our guests are as welcome to try our brilliant brekkie or scrummy salad bar, one of our soups or stews, our pasta, our selection of teas, or incredible Squaremile Red Brick coffee, our sweet treats… all available to sit-in or takeaway.
We love getting creative when designing dishes for diners with special dietary requirements. About 90% of what we do is vegetarian and around 75% is vegan, but ALL our dishes will delight our omni diners too! With our younger diners, even the fussiest of fuss-pots can be seen licking their lips (and maybe even their plates....). And there is always a treat available for our lovely pooches, who are always welcome for cuddles, or a wee leap around with resident puppy, Dougal.
