Hath­aways, La Seigneurie Gar­dens One of the best spots to eat on the is­land, Hath­aways has plenty of out­door seat­ing over­look­ing Le Seigneurie and its gar­dens. Named af­ter the for­mer Dame of Sark, it serves an ar­ray of is­land pro­duce, in­clud­ing lo­cally reared pork, beef and lamb and king scal­lops, crab and much-sought-af­ter Sark lob­ster caught just off the is­land. Most of the herbs, fruit and salad leaves can also be seen grow­ing in the kitchen gar­den next door (la­seigneur­ie­gar­dens.com/ hath­aways). Stocks Ho­tel Thanks to its long-stand­ing re­la­tion­ship with Sark fish­er­men, farm­ers and other pro­duc­ers, Stocks Ho­tel is way ahead of the curve when it comes to prove­nance and has been a cham­pion of fresh Sark pro­duce for more than 37 years – we ate sea bass the head chef had caught ear­lier in the day. Any in­gre­di­ents not sup­plied by lo­cal pro­duc­ers will most likely have been grown in the ho­tel’s mar­ket gar­den, which is run by head gar­dener James Har­ri­son – based on the prin­ci­ples of per­ma­cul­ture, which are aimed at self-suf­fi­ciency and sus­tain­abil­ity (stock­shotel.com). Caragh Cho­co­lates While sit­ting at picnic ta­bles in the gar­den of a tra­di­tional Sark farm­house, you can en­joy tea and home-baked light bites, but best of all is the de­lec­ta­ble se­lec­tion of award-win­ning cho­co­lates on of­fer. All hand-made on site by owner Caragh Couldridge, who founded the busi­ness 20 years ago, they are some­thing of a Sark in­sti­tu­tion and the per­fect way to fuel up when cy­cling around the is­land (caragh­choco­lates.com).
