The Hop Pocket is in constant slow evolution, and part of the changes have seen The Cutting Block butchers and farmshop close in early 2019.
Although sorry to see Pete and Helen go it does give us the opportunity to change our shopping area for the better. Later in the year we are expecting to open a new foodhall in the courtyard, right at the centre of our shopping area. We are aiming to offer the best of local foods, quality everyday staples like bacon, sausages, bread, eggs and some simple fruit & veg. We have a number of wonderful food producers on site, so we are hoping to become much more of a shop window for The Handmade Scotch Egg Co, Peter Cooks Bread, Bakers Dozen and Myrtle’s Kitchen.
If there is anything you think we should stock please let us know, we’ve got a little while to go, we are hoping to be open in August.
In the meantime we have jams and chutneys, biscuits and chocolates in the Craft Centre, and delicious homemade meals and scrumptious cakes in the restaurant.
