Update on deliveries: We have the system in place now so anyone who needs delivery can create an account with us by paying in advance i.e. £100 (cash). Then whatever your total shopping bill will be deducted from your account. (Best way to keep everyone safe). All the receipts will be provided with each delivery so you can keep record as well. If this doesn’t suit you and you have a better idea we can discuss that. Read more
Many of John Baker’s “loyal and entertaining customers” took up his invitation to a pie and a pint at River Lane on Saturday 11 August to celebrate his over 50 year’s service to the village, and well beyond. Some were even observed to have more than one pint, while staying for the pasties (specially imported fresh from the West Country!) was well worth it.
Those not keen on mending their own garden machinery need have no fear – John will be reincarnated at new premises at Foxcotte Farm, Comberton Road, Barton, CB237BA, from early September, where the same mix of engineering skills and philosophical discussion will continue to be available.
Well, it seems like yesterday that we opened Country Kitchen, but it was in fact a whole 5 years ago. How time flies when you’re having fun! On Easter Monday we made a few changes to the shop, and are now pleased to have 2 deli counters. This allows us to have a dedicated deli counter for all the lovely home-made food we produce ourselves in the kitchen, and one for cheeses, olives, cured meats and other delicacies from our wonderful suppliers. The new arrangement will allow our continued expansion and growth, and provides a little more space for everyone. Please do pop in and see the changes. Last week we enjoyed birthday cake and bubbly that went down well with customers and staff alike! We thank all our fabulous customers for your continued support and look forward to seeing you in the ’new look’ shop soon.
- Home-made curries are back: Veg and Vegan most days.
- The shop now offers Barkers Butcher’s meat; also fresh fish every day.
- Drink now includes BREWBOARD ALE from the local brewery in Harston.
- Topat and Bhati have bought the post office and shop at Barrington.
Country Kitchen Christmas Cellar is now open for lovely festive giftware.
