counter 71

modern British chef's table

Counter 71 is a celebration of nature from the British Isles. The rich history of farming, foraging and fishing, inspires our sense of heritage and invention. We source from growers redefining farming techniques, fishers working harmoniously with the sea, and livestock farmers bringing back rare breeds. This way, we show ultimate respect for every link in the chain.
