You can’t be known as Penrith’s best kept foodie secret without shelves overflowing with gourmet treats, now can you?
We try everything at home first before it makes an appearance in the shop, so we’re full of recommendations – just ask!
If we don’t like it, we don’t sell it. That’s why you won’t find any Biltong (we just can’t get past the texture) and why we don’t have a million and one different hot sauces.
We’re very lucky in the Lake District to be home to some phenomenally talented food & drink producers. So in amongst the San Marzano tomatoes from the hills of Naples and Barley Miso Paste imported from Japan, you’ll find Wildflower Honey from the Lowther Estate (just outside Penrith), the best Tomato Ketchup we’ve ever eaten from Hawkshead Relish and Sourdough loaves crafted by More? The Artisan Bakery in Staveley.
Provenance is at the heart of what we do, which is why we like to source our products directly from artisan producers who, more often than not, are small family businesses like us.
