Popped in to stock up on some cheeses and pickles for a carpet picnic.

The lady was serving the people in front and I thought she was extremely rude to them almost to the point of being cocky when they asked a question about the croissants and whether they had chocolate in - she replied no then they would be pain au chocolat not croissants. There was no pleasantries whatsoever or how can I help you when she came to serve me. The cheeses were all local which is great but when I asked if one was mature I got a similar cocky answer to the customers before me - I persevered and she was just abrupt. Most customer friendly places may have offered a sliver to taste perhaps?

When I asked about bread delivery and if there would be fresh bread on Sunday I was told - she would have thought so- which really didn’t answer my question at all. Presumably she thinks she can get away with being officious because (a) they’re only tourists (b) they probably won’t go anywhere else for provisions (c) she doesn’t give a stuff anyway. Downright rude in my opinion.

We arrived before the snow and thankfully stocked up on home made fish pie and game casserole and dumplings along with treacle tarts and pastries. The food was exceptional! Highly recommend!

Lovely deli. Great coffee, delicious fresh croissants each morning and lovely home made ready meals. Wish we had a place like this at home!

Popped in here for a ready meal and was recommended the mushroom lasagne. It was rich and absolutely scrumptious - now I need to come back and get another!

Went to this deli this morning, shop had a big silver fridge which was empty . On a board outside fresh croissants, sausage rolls and lots of other things ,the board was obviously still on the wall from the summer months!!!!!!!! fresh being the operative word but perhaps not if you want a fresh loaf of bread. Purchased a small seeded loaf which was put into a paper bag , the COST £3.40, don’t mind paying for a nice fresh local loaf whilst away for a few days . Back at the cottage put the knife in to cut a nice slice , so hard !!!!! Went straight into the bin , baked last Tuesday fortnight I should think . Why does a shop open in the colder months when they can’t produce the goods , shop was nearly empty anyway . Just close the door until the warmer months so people like me doesn’t get ripped off !!!! How they were awarded the trip adviser 2017 I shall never know your establishment should be 100% all year round
