Oversized bowls of olives, wicker baskets heaped with fresh fruit and vegetables and cheeses from all over Europe vie for space here, where only the freshest and finest produce is found.
From France we have corn-fed chickens, Toulouse sausages, sweet Cevennes onions and farmhouse paté; from Italy the finest Parma Ham, pesto, fresh pasta, salamis and cured beef; from Spain chorizo, gazpacho, Serrano & Iberico ham. Sourced closer to home is our freshly sliced Loch Fyne smoked salmon, Enderby’s smoked haddock and fresh local Gloucestershire game.
