The Deli.
Cheese
At any one time our cheese counter has over 30 different cheeses ranging from local Scottish favourites such as Strathdon Blue and Ayrshire Dunlop to a range of exciting English, Welsh and Irish cheeses such as Barkham Blue and the ever popular Black Bomber. There is also an extensive range of International cheeses such as the tasty Mahon from Minorca and the deliciously creamy Brie de Meaux as well as regular favourites including Parmiggiano Reggiano, Greek Feta and Haloumi.

We try to vary the range as much as possible and are always on the lookout for new cheeses. We are able to source almost any cheese on request and are able to recommend different varieties and make up cheeseboards for our customers. Of course we invite customers to try before they buy!

Meat and Poultry
Demand for good quality, locally produced meat and poultry has grown steadily since we have been open. People need to know the provenance of the meat they are buying and we currently stock the following:
Beef
Highland Beef is provided by Charlie Bruce from his farm in King Edward near Banff. We stock a range of cuts including steaks, steak mince, stewing beef and roasting joints but specific orders can be made in advance if you have a particular recipe in mind. Charlie also produces prime, local lamb and Gloucester Old Spot pork.
Pork
Delicious dry cured bacon, sausages, ham and pork roasting joints are provided on a weekly basis by Ingram’s Homecure in Newburgh where high welfare standards are ensured.
Free Range chicken
Organic free range chickens are delivered fortnightly from Hugh Grierson in Perthshire. We stock whole chickens as well as thigh, wing and breast portions - the flavour speaks for itself!


We stock the award winning Stornaway black and white puddings.

In fact, there are so many items on our shelves and in our fridges that we cannot list them all here. The best thing to do is to come into the shop and see for yourself.

 
 
Hampers
We make up hampers and fruit baskets to order and also sell gift vouchers, so if you are short on ideas for that special gift then look no further.
