Voted national ‘Deli of the Year 2012/2013’

One of judge's final comments at Deli of the Year 2012 was, "This deli is simply a place where you want to spend a whole day, eating grazing platters, drinking amazing coffee, tasting and choosing, and all the while just listening to the banter of the deli staff - it is the best fringe food event ever!"

The Independent Britain’s 50 Best Food Shops

"A glorious deli and wine merchant in the beating heart of Nottingham. How they manage to keep so much stock – 200 cheeses, 50 types of salami and cured meats and all the other bottles, jars, packets and tins that every discerning gourmet craves – looking so neat is a miracle in itself. There’s so much here you’d want to eat, and if you can’t wait, you can have it on the spot in the food bar."

The Guardian Food Directory - The Best British Produce

“Great deli and food bar, with a proper focus on supporting the local producer. The majority of its stock comes from the area: a local hand-made chutney, freshly baked bread, local cheeses, 50 meats and charcuterie. It has fresh pasta from artisan producers in Italy and a great selection of wine”
