At WhamBam we make organic pakoras and bhajias, made fresh onsite, served with dips in biodegradable trays and we have been doing that for 18 years.

The secret to our success? We buy the best organic ingredients from local independents. This means our vegetables, honored to sacrifice themselves for a WhamBam, are grown/supplied by Kate and Jonathon at Cherry Gardens Organic Farm (Groombridge) and have utterly DELICIOUS nourishment oooooozing out of them! We dip those sacred seasonal veg into our batter which we make lovingly from organic Shropshire lentils, ground by our goodselves (with the help of elves) and a few freshly ground organic spices; you get the flavour of the veg, the grain AND the magic. We serve them freshly cooked, on biodegradable trays with some deliciously devourable dips. Buy some … and go to heaven! Everyone can eat them and they put a smile on your tummy as well as the environment! Allergen-free, cooked fresh, very low food waste, recycling policies strictly adhered to – how good can it get? You may have to wait while we cook them but it’s well worth it.

Sankey’s | Facebook | Twitter

At Sankey’s we pride ourselves on the quality of our produce, be it our incredible range of Oysters, our fresh crabs & lobsters, our handmade burger buns or our unrivalled range of hand crafted beers.

That’s what’s special about us, we are a family run business that employs real people, our team cares about what they do and we really think that matters.

We have a simple rule here at Sankey’s and that is we do not buy any seafood that comes from a source that cannot prove its produce comes from a sustainable source, and we do check!

However, even this isn’t enough. We have become obsessed with ensuring that our seas & oceans remain the best source of food and to do that we must treat it with care. We are of the belief that this can only start “on the front line”, in our restaurants and on our high streets. So to do our bit we set up the “Buy One, Set One Free” campaign with our friends at The National Lobster Hatchery.

Face painting returns for 2019!

Face painting is a wonderful and fun creative medium for many different occasions. Parties, weddings, hen nights, corporate events can all be made more colourful with face painting.

I’m fully insured, and based in East Grinstead. All of the paints and glitter tattoos I use are professional grade, and are specifically designed to not irritate delicate skin. 

I specialise in face painting at children’s events and parties, hen nights, clubs and pubs. I can be hired for shopping centres, promotional events, corporate events and weddings.
