Great deli with huge variety of fresh produce, meats, cheeses etc, etc, albeit not cheap, but hey, we don't mind paying for quality. A bonus is the café with great cakes and a lovely garden to sit in.

If you want quality and don't mind paying this is the place for you. The ham, coffee and cake are superb. Well worth a visit. The inside of the shop is like going back in time so clean and well laid out.
