We also stock a range of local pottery and art.
Need something delivered or need a lift? If you are struggling to get to us, we will do our best to try and help. Call 01798 865907 and we will see if we can deliver to you or provide you with a lift to the shop.
Our café offers soup and sandwiches, snacks, cakes and cookies and a children’s menu. We have a dedicated café area within the shop and, for the days when the sun is shining, additional seating outside on our terrace. With free WIFI and views over the recreation ground and children’s playground we look forward to seeing you soon.
We are a true village shop at the heart of our community.
