Opened by Tom Kitchin in 2012, the Deli is an eclectic haven for foodies and serves as the larder for our kitchen. Our mission is to showcase the best independent food producers, creating a broad range with a particular focus on wine (Bill is obsessed with natural wines), cheese, charcuterie, cider and coffee. In short, everything you need for a day at the river.


We have freshly-baked bread delivered by a range of artisan local bakers, Tuesday to Saturday. Our suppliers are:

Tuesday: Twelve Triangles, Melrose

Wednesday: Crom Bread, Coldstream (white loaves only)

Thursday: The Breadmaker, Coldstream

Friday: The Fat Batard, Peebles

Saturday: Crom Bread, Coldstream (seeded, foccacia & white)


A little while ago we stocked a chocolate company that excelled at bold and creative packaging while being uncompromising on the taste of what was inside. This company was Ocelot and we are very pleased to say that they are back on our shelves!

10 years ago Ocelot Chocolate was founded by Ish and Matt Broadbent at their kitchen table in Edinburgh. Fast forward to 2023 and they have partnered with Original Beans, becoming sister companies. It has allowed them to bring us a new range of flavours and designs. Still based in Edinburgh, Ocelot works at their micro factory with a focus of creating flavour-forward and sustainable chocolate.

This is the most beautiful bookshop and deli that I have been in. Thank you so much for your warmth and enthusiasm.
