Really friendly staff and enjoyed their homemade feta and tomato tarts, delicious! The shop is packed to the rafters with an array of unusual foods. A joy to visit and find that something a bit different.

Cracking little deli in the heart of the village, selling a fantastic range of products. I can guarantee that you will walk in and buy something that you never knew you needed! The deli has a great range of cheeses and cooked meats with some more unusual products from UK producers too. The Red Devil cheese is a must try for those that like a bit of heat in their cheese and as for the Black Bomber - you have just got to try it! It’s great to see a village shop stocking a fantastic range of UK produce. The exceptional service you will receive also matches the quality of the product they sell.

If that wasn’t enough to make you want to visit you can also grab a mean cup of coffee and a sandwich and while away the time at the seating area at the front of the shop or browse the shelves and chillers looking for you next artisan purchase!

If you are fed up with buying the same old products in the same old supermarket and are looking for something just a little bit different you have got to visit this little gem of a shop.

What makes this deli so special is the wonderful service. The two female owners are extremely friendly (with a great sense of humour) and have good knowledge of the local area. The sandwiches are fantastic and you have to visit for a lunch - the platters are brilliant (especially the fusion of local meat and cheese with homemade coleslaw). They also stock lots of good local produce, including Kent chilli farm products which have to be recommended. Visit this deli for a real flavour of Bexley!

Bexley Village has seen a lot of shops come and go over the last few years. I have always admired boutique shops that really make it in small villages and I was really excited when a couple of "deli-style" shops opened. I made sure that I spent some time in them, but both ended up being fairly uninspiring. Browns of Bexley is now achieving what every other modern Deli aspires to, after only a few months of being open.

They sell what you would expect from a deli i.e. meats, cheeses, olives and does excellent coffee too. What is so impressive the the choice of other deli goods. It must be difficult to select products for a shop that could effectively sell any foodstuffs they want. Browns has selected some of the most innovative products available, rather than cram shelves with overpriced supermarket products.

The prepared food is also excellent. The owner makes all sorts of baked goods each day and sells them for really reasonable prices. They are just wonderful. There is a little seating area at the front to relax in and enjoy the products on offer.
