Innovate by name and nature. Food choice, flexibility, quality and speed are at the heart of what we do. Inspired by the best and most fashionable high street concepts, we pride ourselves on fusing fantastic quality food with quick service.

Everything has to start with fantastic quality and responsible food. Across our wide, diverse and ever-changing menus, we ensure that every single morsel is safe, sustainable and tastes great. We only source from farmers, wholesalers and catering butchers that are audited to UKAS accredited standards and meet the highest possible assurance levels.

We use our ears and listen to students, understanding what they want and then reflecting their desires on our menus, in our environments and through our initiatives. Working with Hawes Down Primary School in this way embeds us as a valued part of your community.

In addition to great food in great environments, we are committed to becoming an ‘Impact Organisation’ and doing whatever we can to create a better world. Our vision and values are entirely aligned to working with our schools to create a positive food culture and a commitment to brilliant food, genuine partnership, and impassioned service.

School Milk

From September 2021 we will be using the Cool Milk scheme to provide milk for all pupils.  Cool Milk provides a milk scheme that is available to all of our pupils and we would like to invite you to register your child. Milk is available at a subsidised* price of 22p per day.

Each child that registers with Cool Milk will receive a 189ml portion of semi-skimmed milk every day, delivered fresh and chilled to the classroom.  Their school milk will not only provide them with essential nutrients, but as it is rehydrating and energy boosting it also bridges the gap between breakfast and lunch to help children stay focused. 

How to register and pay

  • Register and pay online at
  • You can pay Cool Milk either online, over the phone or at a local PayPoint in half-termly, termly or annual instalments
  • Please pay by a Tuesday at 5pm for your child’s milk to start the following week
