Our shop has an extensive range of local & Organic produce and the best selection of Organic wines and Beer in Hastings. On the shelves you can find our handmade Museli and Granola, Hastings honey and our jams and marmalades.
We only use the best Organic flour, milled by Shipton Mill where their flour has been stone-ground since the Doomsday book.
Sea salt, filtered water and quality organic ingredients ensure that the bread you eat is of the highest quality. All our loaves are suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans and our Gluten free bread is exceptional!

All our pastries are handmade in the bakery, situated just at the rear of the shop, and baked throughout the day to ensure they are fresh and tasty.
Cider & Apple, Cajun, Black pudding and Red Onion Relish are some of our most popular sausage rolls.
Also in the summer we bake our famous Mack-a-Rolls; puff pastry filled with local smoked mackerel.
At the rear of the shop is where everything happens! Our bakers work seven days a week to fill the shop with the aromas of freshly baked bread, cakes and savoury pastries. Just like our bread, our cakes and pastries embody the judges food ethic: Fresh, seasonal, organic and (as much as possible) locally sourced.
