Christmas is coming

Withies Delicatessen Christmas Spread


The smells of Christmas are the smells of childhood.

Richard Paul Evans

It’s close – you can practically smell the nylon and whisky in Santa’s beard. We’ve secretly been populating our shelves with Christmas goodies and attending ‘Autumn Fayres’ which are actually Christmas fairs that dared not come out of their closet for fear of ridicule at their promptness, but it’s here now, officialz.


Christmas, children, is not a date. It is a state of mind.

Mary Ellen Chase

A customer popped in the other day, bought some presents and said ‘Merry Christmas’ as she walked out the door. We all stopped, looked at each other, blinked and said ‘Oo, that’s the first one this year!’

And I’ve had to think about it more this year too. Not just what I can do for my family and friends but what I can do for you too. And with that in mind we’re actually pretty well organised. Not only do we have a glittering array of gifts and treats to delight your palates but we have a number of courses make great gifts too, whether it’s bread baking, cooking or chocolate making pop on over to our Courses page and have a little looksy. 

In fact we’re so better organised that we can even help you be organised by allowing you to pre-book your bread, cheese and accompaniments like giardiniera. Please do check the deadlines for ordering though and take care of it right away, that way you’ll have that much more time to chillax and enjoy yourself!  


Christmas isn’t a season. It’s a feeling.
