Quality British Food
Recognising that everyone has different tastes we’ve decided to mainly stock products that have been lauded by the Guild of Fine Food, an
independent body whose Great Taste Awards honour the best products in the food industry. Our suppliers are generally winners of a Gold Great Taste Award or, alternatively, are holders of a royal warrant. That said, some suppliers are too small to enter the awards, but are too good to omit, so we’ve included some of these too!
We have listed below examples of some of the very best British producers we are proud to work with....
Andrew Shorrock Cheese - The legendary Lancashire Bomb! (Pictured on home page!)
This is a cheese very close to our hearts - this is a cheese that was always on our Cheese Board favourite in both our families when growning up in Lancashire!
Made with pasteurised milk from his own herd of Holstein Freisian cows, Andrew Shorrock is the fourth generation of his family to make this exceptional tasty Lancashire in Goosnargh near Preston. In 1938 Shorrocks Tasty Lancashire won the renowned Preston Open Cheese Fair beating all-comers at a time when every farm was making cheese. Since the early 20th century the same traditions and the dedication of one family have resulted in a fantastic example of a true regional classic.
