We’ll also have some mini Christmas cake slabs crowned with glace cherries and Brazils. Order yours while stocks last at the Brett & Bailey Christmas shop.
We’ll also have jars of luxury mincemeat and two brand new handmade jams for Christmas – stuff a stocking with a jar of cherry and amaretto or blueberry and bourbon. Stop by for a taste.

Natural wines – Wine Scouts Pedro says “Hello! Ladies and Gentlemen, the Beaujolais Nouveau est arrivé! Yes, this year we are joining the craze, and that is because we have found a superb, natural Beaujolais ( Villages) Nouveau made by Domaine de Botheland from Laurence and Remi Dufaitre. Nose of fresh crushed red berries and fresh perfumed flowers. The palate is elegant with integrated acidity and not the least bit crunchy. Probably the most red-berried and “burgundian” nouveau I’ve had so far. Surprising elegance and finesse for this rushed category of wine, and as expected – deliciously fresh and gulpable. Come taste!”
Smokery – London Smoke & Cure All produce is made and prepared in our little smokehouse in the heart of the triangle. Give Ross a call on 07837 838 241 for any questions or pre-orders.
