Flower Power Flourishes at the Queens Arms

From pansies to parsley, roses to rosemary, this summer’s menu at The Queens Arms in Corton Denham, Somerset, is brimming with fresh flavours and floral flourishes, gathered from the pub’s own kitchen garden.

The annual Sourced Locally Fortnight is held by the East of England Co-op to encourage shoppers to support local businesses by making one swap in their basket for something local.
