shop & deli
Our Pork Pies are all hand made, using our own Pork.
Over the years we have developed our products from the delicatessen counter to offer a wide range of home produced cooked meats, deli salads, terrines, quiches and a superb selection of pates from a reputable local company.
We boast an extensive selection of pies, ranging from our cold pork pie range including the award winning Sweet Apple Chutney & Stilton topped Pork Pie, through to our myriad of hot pies including the ever popular Knitsley Corned Beef Pasty or the ravishing Red Onion Marmalade Sausage Roll. All of which are hand stamped and filled in batches, before being baked-off fresh every day for service.
Feel free to request fresh sandwiches to be made up while you wait or you can ring ahead to place a pre-order for pies or sandwiches.
We founded the shop with the premise that it could provide everything required to enjoy a dinner party with friends, from succulent cuts of meat to local wine!
To complement this we also offer a wonderful array of fresh fruit and vegetables working within the seasons and using only the best quality produce supplied by Chris our great greengrocer! Following on from that, we have free range eggs, condiments, our freshly packed meats and deli goods, the butchery and deli counters, then onto the fantastic range of local ales, wines and spirits. We have a cheese counter stocked to tempt your taste buds including great local cheeses from Weardale Cheese Company and Northumberland Cheese Company, complemented by a wide range of crackers and biscuits.
The centre of the shop is dedicated to our fresh bread selection, which is baked daily in our on-site bakery from 3am . Fantastic every day breads including buns, stotties, tea cakes, white, wholemeal, & granary loaves.
The shop ‘trail’ is rounded off with sweet treats, with locally produced Beamish Museum boiled sweets & Canny Candy Gadgies fudges, all leading to our fantastic cake cabinet filled with mouth-watering traybakes and indulgent cream cakes all handmade by Rachel and her team in the bakery.
We are immensely proud that we have developed many local, short supply chains and are thrilled that we stock products from over 20 small, local producers – all of whom we know personally by name!
