Whenever possible we source locally, this is reflected in our diverse product range. Our freshly baked bread arrives from down the road here in Croydon & our fresh & bottled beer range is strongly biased towards local producers like The Cronx, Gipsy Hill, Late Knights and others.
Our fresh fruits and vegetables are sourced directly from local farms and New Covent Garden Market, our Free-range eggs are supplied by a local farm in Surrey whilst a small family business based in South Croydon provide us with lovely home-made cakes & pies.
Make a Tour de Taste and take your taste buds on a journey around the globe with a fantastic selection of world foods. From the Caribbean to the Indian continent we have over 5000 products carefully chosen for their quality, provenance and value. With regular in-store tastings and a knowledgeable team we are able to help our customers enjoy and experience world class cuisine from the comfort of their own kitchen!
We’ve been promoting Craft beer back when they called it Real ale, so almost as long as Camra have! Our list boggles the mind, rarely do you visit a store that can boast over 1000 varieties of beer, well you can now. Whether it’s an unpronounceable German pilsner or an organic chocolate stout we have the range and expertise to satisfy anyone’s palate.
We also offer a selection of freshly brewed beers that we serve on tap to take-away, an innovation not seen in Croydon, that allows customers to sample some of the very best locally brewed beers. In addition, every month we host very popular ‘Meet the Brewer’ events where a head brewer is invited to talk about their beers, inspirations and encourage home brewing.
We hand pick our meats directly from farms in Essex or at Smithfields market, so we can provide the finest, freshest, quality meats around. Not only that, because of the amount of work we’ve put in with our suppliers, you can rest assured that our prices are some of the most competitive around. So come in store today and try some of our range for your next dinner.
We work directly with the best farmers in the land, in fact they’re the best in their field. We know exactly how your food is made, how it’s grown and what goes, or more importantly doesn’t go, into it.
That’s not to say we don’t also carry a huge selection of fruit & vegetables from around the globe. Whether its a Sri-Lankan rambutan or a West Indian star apple we source over 400 fruits & vegetables daily to ensure the freshest possible produce.
If you’d like to reduce your impact on the environment then going organic may be the best way forward. We have a growing selection of ethically sourced, organic produce and work closely with a number of local producers.
