We’re back to regular opening hours, and have taken this opportunity to remodel the shop, so we can offer you even more ethical whole foods. It should now be easier to find what you want. We also have created a baby section, which we’ll be adding to soon.
First reactions to the new shop layout are really positive. We have created a bit of extra shelf space, and we are keen to hear from you which products you would like us to stock.
In other news, we’ve just received another load of organic local vegetables from Ashurst Organics, which you’ll find displayed outside our door and in the vegetable fridge that’s moved to inside the shop. There you’ll also find the gorgeous bread made by the people at Flint Owl (in the shop that is, not in the fridge).
See you soon…

When Lucy & Benny brought in their giant sweet jars, filled them with ‘Scoop & Weigh’ wholefoods & then trundled them off in a reclaimed trolley, bedecked with ivy, they made us all smile. A fine example of how to reuse, recycle & reduce waste with style!

We’re now showcasing and selling some of the amazing arts and crafts produced by Coachwerks makers. In the shop we’ve got striking photographs by Cyril Holas and stunning pottery by Rachel Entwistle and Alice Duck.
Rachel’s pottery is tactile and earthy. Her pots, bowls and jugs are sometimes partially glazed to reveal the underlying textures.
Alice creates beautiful, quirky homeware, each piece is a contemporary twist on tradition.
Cyril Holas combines unusual angles, stark contrasts and mirrored effects in his evocative black and white, analog photography.
