Christmas Orders

Our Christmas order book is open, although the 23rd & the 24th are already looking to be busy collection days!  That said, and particularly this year, it is advisable to order from the butchery, cheese from the Delicatessen, fish from our Fishmonger ... and hampers from the Elves as well.

There are many ways you can order, in-person by speaking to any one of the team, over the phone on 01473 786610, by emailing by browsing the online shop (please note not all of our items are available online) or by using the order form here.

Orders can be collected right up until close of play on Christmas eve, but we recommend planning ahead. We also advise on shopping for your store cupboard items early on.  ... well, we do like to be prepared here at the Food Hall.



Whatever the occasion, a hamper can send many messages and raise a smile. Select from our ready-wrapped range or get in touch to 'go bespoke'. 

Over the festive period we will have five ready-made hampers available, two of which will be festive theme perfect for a Christmas gift.

If you want create a unique gift, pop in and see us to talk bespoke hampers, or shop the items and gifts you'd like to include and we can wrap it up nicely for you. The team of experts will be busy creating hampers throughout the festive season. 

Visit our hamper page for more information, to view our hamper range and to place an enquiry.

Christmas Trees

Christmas trees have dropped in (excuse the needle pun) already.

  • sustainable (more are replanted than cut),
  • locally grown at Red House farm (not cut and shipped in a chilled container from Eastern Europe)
  • and fresh, to endure Christmas.

We have three types of trees available, starting at £29.95 and 5 foot:

Nordmann Fir - the most popular variety due to its lovely shape and its ability to hold its needles.

Norway spruce - A less bushy traditional shaped tree, greener in colour than the Nordmann.

Douglas Fir - A full on bushy, wild tree that is beautifully orange scented and will perfume the house.


When there's so much choice it's often hard to decide what to get as a gift for someone, that's why gift vouchers can be a great present. Let the recipient use them on whatever they like, ... in the Restaurant, for items in the Food Hall, home department or garden centre. 

Our vouchers are available in denominations of £10 and can be purchased online, at the tills or via phone.  

Want to add a personalised message to the gift? No problem we can write a message inside our voucher holding card and post it directly to the recipient.

We also have 'Afternoon Tea' specific vouchers available online here

Please note the last postage date for vouchers is Monday 21st December.
