We visited this little gem for a treat while out on a walk through the village. I had a lovely pot of tea while the the ladies had some hot chocolate which they loved. The cake was great and although it was 2:30 on a Sunday afternoon there was still a good selection left. The staff were very friendly and... More

Went to The Arch house Deli today,armed with gift vouchers ,which were a Christmas present and intended to buy some gift packs of cider. Was then told by a member of staff that they can't sell alcohol on a Sunday. Why not?

I'm sorry we were unable to sell you alcohol on a Sunday. We'd love to, however our current alcohol licence doesn't allow us to. We're in the process of getting this altered but in the mean time we have to comply with the law. More

I can’t recommend this place enough for their excellent service, extreme patience and amazing cheese selection! When we were planning our wedding we knew that we wanted to have a wedding cheese cake as part of our evening buffet as we are big cheese lovers, but the choice was endless. The Arch House Deli were amazing at advising us and... More

By far the best deli i've ever been to. The bread boards are fantastic and the selection of cheese, bread and drinks is great. Highly recommended.

We used Arch House Deli for our Corporate Christmas hampers this year. We were ordering fairly late in the day, but despite our last minute request, David and his team assembled a fantastic array of fresh and boxed products for sharing. They organised thirty boxes and hampers, including the delivery of these to each individual customer, within a very short... More

fantastic bread, beautiful ham, and cheeses to die for. nice touch having bottles of tap water available in the cafe. Savoury pies delicious. Seemed to be quite short staffed on the day we visited but worth the wait when our meals arrived. The home made breads were amazing and a fantastic array of gifts and foodstuffs available in the shop... More
