Award Winning Mrs Darlington’s sweet apple chutney is made with love and a perfect accompaniment to the flavoursome waxed cheese truckles. Choose your favourite from our delicious selection from The Mouse House Cheese Company. They taste so good you wont want to stop eating them!

Smother your favourite pate on top of the Peter’s Yard sourdough crackers and add a delicious dollop of the fabulous Mrs Darlington’s Piccalilli. The fantastic array of mixed vegetables, mustard and spices gives a magnificent tangy taste and a fabulous taste sensation. A winning combination alongside the delicious artisan Verduijn’s fine Savoury wafers, golden baked thin wafers with real Italian pesto and Parmesan cheese.

The sweet and crunchy silver skinned onions from Sarah Darlington’s are preserved in a tasty balsamic vinegar. A perfect addition to any salad, quiche, or barbeque. One jar of these is never enough!

Spiced in black pepper, The Greek Farmer’s air dried ham is perfectly complimented by most cheeses. The fat of this ham gives it a beautiful creamy flavour, together with the red wine notes taken from the process used of bathing the ham in wine of the Troodos Mountains for over a week to take on its lovely flavour.

Sourced from the warm tropics the sweet and juicy mango from Forest Feast is fully dipped in 60% dark chocolate to create a treat so incredible its a symphony for your taste buds.

Delicious wafer sticks  from Bolero are filled with a cappuccino cream, and the Mrs Crimble’s coconut have a seriously jammy centre and are perfect with tea or coffee or add to your desert to make it an extra special treat.

From Nevis Bakery we have a richly baked zesty lemon flavoured classic loaf cake and D’Addezio bring us an Italian favourite with the Apolline Mignon pastries filled with Hazelnut Cream.

Domaine Begude is a small hilltop domaine very close to the town of Limoux, owned and managed by British couple James and Catherine Kinglake. The area is known for its relatively cool climate and hence its ability to produce crisp and aromatic Chardonnay, with characteristics to rival fine Burgundies.

Villa Maria ‘Cellar Selection’ Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough New Zealand 14% 75cl Award Winner

Think gooseberry and passion fruit with the zing of grapefruit. The grapes are even harvested in the cool of the night to make sure as many aromas as possible are preserved. The Cellar Selection wines were created expressly for food and this Sauvignon is extra aromatic which works really well with spice.

Cantina Beato Bartolomeo Pinot Grigio Superiore, Breganze DOC. Italy 12.5% 75cl

Fresh and light, with crisp citrus flavours and pretty floral aromas, this is Pinot Grigio at its most refreshing.

Copper Kingdom Shiraz, Barossa. Austrailia 14% 75cl Award Winner

Full bodied. It’s intense. It’s a seriously hearty wine, full of blackcurranty, blackberry flavours – a real hug in a glass. The fine tannins and rich, mouth-filling texture are classic Barossa Shiraz.

Château Grimont ‘Cuvée Prestige’, Cadillac Côtes de Bordeaux 13.5% 75cl

Vibrant, generous and alluring, the Moët Impérial style is distinguished by a bright fruitiness with notes of green apple and white flowers. The wine’s enticing palate, redolent of white-fleshed fruits and citrus, is enhanced by fine bubbles and its elegant maturity is revealed in notes of brioche and wheat.

Nicolas Courtin Brut NV Champagne 75cl 12% Award Winner
