Caxton is now the proud owner of 200,000 Buckfast bees. These permanent guests live in six hives on the roof, with all of London’s major parks on their doorstep. A bee travels within a three-mile radius to collect pollen and nectar, so the benefit of being located so close to such an abundance of green space is that there is no shortage of flowers for the bees to visit. More importantly to Caxton, the wide variety of flora the bees visit improves the taste and quantity of the honey.
The honey is collected on a regular basis by bee expert Camilla Goddard and finds its way into various dishes on the various Caxton menus. Our head chef believes that these bees and the honey they produce epitomize his approach to cooking as it is not only kind to the body but to the environment as well.
(Honey doesn’t just taste delicious, it also helps boost your immune system, helps prevent hay fever and is also known to be a good cure for hangovers!)
