A special day is coming up to remember Mum.  Our Mum's are always working so hard, they've always been there when we need them, always caring, loving, worrying and thinking of everyone else before themselves.  It's a day for her to relax and do what she wants to do, a day that they should feel appreciated.  We have some great little things for you to pick up for your Mum, whether it be her favourite chocolate bar, bags of crisps, a necklace, earrings or even just a card.  We've got something that she will enjoy.  Pop in and see us!

We'd like to wish our Mum and all Mum's out there and wonderful Mother's Day!!

Thanks Mum for everything you do!


One thing that we're really enjoying are the stories that our customers tell us of certain items they love to come in and buy every week that has some sort of memory attached to them. 

These pickled onions take me back to my Grandad's pickled onion that he used to make when I was a kid in Bishop's Stortford.  We used to go visit my Nan and Grandad and the first place I'd go is into their cupboard looking for this massive jar of homemade pickled onions that I loved so much.  These have that same flavour!  They're definitely worth a try.

Auntys Steamed Puddings

We introduced these into the shop about 3 weeks ago and have been doing very well.  In fact, some customers say they prefer these over the Heinz Puddings because they're more suitable for a single serving size and so convenient to be able to just microwave them for a quick and easy solution for a yummy dessert!  The flavours available are: 
  • Gingery Syrup
  • Spotted Dick
  • Sticky Toffee
  • Strawberry
  • Golden Syrup
