Refillables - how does it work?


''Great food including excellent sausage rolls. Took mine home and heated in oven. Fantastic!"


"The Post office is a god-send. I will be frequenting this store. I hope many others will too. It deserves to be a success."

"Fantastic local shop! Everything you need in an emergency and some treats along the way! So happy to have it in the village."

"Great village store. Good range of locally sourced products and great to see the range of vegetarian/vegan options too. Gluten free items also available. My little ones like the fantastic range of sweets a bit too much!"

Here's what our customers have to say:
Post Office

We provide all the services of a traditional sub post office and can handle all your parcels, letters and returns.  Furthermore we’re a destined Amazon drop off point too so you don’t need to hunt down your eagerly awaited parcel from the back porch or your next door neighbour!


We also provide cash and the standard foreign currencies either by way of travellers’ cheques, cash or preloaded travel cards. Currency has to be pre-ordered and you will require photo identification for this.

Coffee Shop

A place to catch up with friends, chill out or cosy up on a cold day...


Serving a wide range of coffees, from creamy lattes to black americanos, aswell as tea and hot chocolate, our coffee corner is an ideal place to sit down and relax with friends and family.


If you’re feeling indulgent cast your eye over our sumptuous array of home-made sweet and savoury snacks from our deli counter. There’s bound to be something to tempt you.  

If you can't decide, we recommend you sample our famous Detling Doorstep – you won’t be disappointed!


Bikers, walkers and dogs all welcome

Given our location next to a park, there is plenty of room to accommodate bikes.

Dogs are welcome and we’ve got tables outside so you can bring the kids and let them loose in the park while you put your feet up. Come rain or shine, we are ready to serve you inside or outside on our decking.


Tables and chairs inside and out for  a range of snacks and paninis, hot and cold drinks.
