What a wonderful evening we had! The team at Arch House had clearly put in a lot of time and effort to make our French-themed cheese and wine tasting evening a success. They were wonderful hosts, and made us feel very welcome and relaxed. The evening was incredibly informative (and very tasty), and I have come away with a genuine... More

Due to time constraints between graduation ceremonies a picnic seemed the only choice. The Arch House Deli was a excellent choice, the contents were of a very high standard something for everyone. My daughters face certainly lit up and the sight of raspberry lemonade and the size of the strawberries. The picnic certainly added to the enjoyment of a wonderful... More

All the cheeses were tasty (according to our guests, at least) and the staff were very helpful and accommodating with coming up with a cake for us, particularly as it was very last-minute.

Went here to get a wedding cheese cake / tower. They were really useful and informative. Not pushy at all. The cheese tasting at the begining was very useful and, friendly and fun. And all of my guests loved the cheese. My advice would be to leave the Cornish Yarg, it is ok, but certainly the least favourite by my... More

My wife and I ordered a cheese wedding cake from Arch House Deli recently. As a long time fan of this superb deli they delivered exceptional service and a cheese cake that all of the guests descended on like vultures as soon as it was brought out. The member of staff who served us went as far as finding the... More

This is the sort of deli that any discerning food lover would like to have close to them. They pick and choose their produce carefully and stock many great products that have won gongs in the Great Taste Awards. There are opportunities to sample products or simply discuss them with the knowledgable staff. A great cheese counter; brilliant coffee and... More

I ordered a picnic hamper from the deli for a birthday treat. The staff were very responsive and helpful, and flexible about swapping foods we couldn't eat for favourites and the result was a selection of really delicious salads, cakes and cheeses. My partner particularly likes chorizo and there were some nice touches around this theme. As a special treat... More
