Through our economic growth activities and financial performance, we are able to form sustainable supply partnerships; owners asset management and, employment opportunities that are people centric whilst future proofing our stakeholders return on investment. 


Supply Partnerships

The Rees Hotel endeavors to source its external supplies locally, wherever possible.

We are encouraging our suppliers to follow similar policies in regard to environmental and social sustainability in their own operations. Their commitment will have a strong influence on our decision to do business with them.


Sustainable Food Suppliers 

After numerous tastings we have sourced what we believe to be amongst the best examples of local quality produce from people who have a genuine passion for food. We are proud of the quality produce within our region and are aware that buying local supports the community and helps to reduce food miles. Half the battle of cooking great food is starting with a quality product and we believe that we have found many!   We hope that you enjoy our research and maybe even use some of them yourself – please tell the suppliers that we sent you!
