For those of you who don’t drink we’ve made sure that the non-alcoholic sparkling wine on our menu is one to rival the alcoholic variety in terms of taste. So, we joined forces with Thomson & Scott who supply us with bottles of their delicious Noughty – the first top quality, alcohol-free, organic, vegan, halal, low-sugar sparkling wine. And the great news doesn’t stop there – Thomson & Scott are B Corp certified, meaning that they have met the high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability. A glass of Noughty can be enjoyed with our delicious Champagne Afternoon Tea.
