Another fantastic Southwold deli. Great service. Everything they sell is great, but not cheap. The pies are a must.

Delicious pies (Moo and Blue, Kate and Sidney...), a fantastic array of local cheeses, a small selection of cakes, but a HUGE array of olives, crackers and, surprisingly flavoured pork scratchings. Service was friendly , and the shop was heaving busy.

I am not usually a pie lover but was tempted while on holiday in Southwold. What an experience! Absolutely wonderful! We even bought some to bring home and put in the freezer. Whoever makes them is doing a fabulous job! If you are in town,you must give them a try. We especially enjoyed the Moo pies.

Looking in the window , the first thing that meets your eye is a wonderful array of pies. Not just meat pies but imaginative pies for vegetarians too. I was amazed at the choice and not surprised to see that the staff were all kept busy serving customers. If you love pies, you need to pay this shop a visit.... More

Excellent food, the tarts with goats cheese, veggies etc are always so scrummy, and the bread - well, doorstep sandwiches are the order of the day when we get back to the caravan.

During my holiday I called in here several times and bought some delicious goats cheese and caramelised onion tarts, pork pie, and potato salad. All the food on offer looked very appetising. Highly recommended!

Sampled a few pies. The Moo pie (Steak and Ale) was fab the Chicken of Aragon (Chicken. bacon and tarragon) was good. My friends also tried the Steak and kidney and one of the vegetarian pies. The pastry was really good and the filling excellent quality. But quality comes at a price and at £4.50 this was a fairly expensive... More

The headline about sums it up. I particularly like the range of salads and quiches that have often been the source of a quick and delicious home lunch.
