We now stock a range of whole, marinated olives fresh from our good friend's farm near Mazara del Vallo on the south-western coast of Sicily.

Delight your tastebuds with these OLIVES


Sample cheese you’ve not tried before or build a cheese board with minimal cost.

Our zero waste cheese selection are the offcuts leftover after slicing whole cheese wheels for customer orders.

Rather than letting this go to waste (there’s only so much we can eat!) you can now buy them.

What Our Customers Say

The wine list is quite small but the four I have tasted have all been absolute gems. They really do have obvious qualities that make them low volume artisan hand made products. Every thing seems slightly out of the ordinary and special. These guys have an eye and palate to cheer the spirit. Spot on!

Michael S

Absolutely Great. The cheese was mouth watering. Will be ordering again soon, and recommending...
