First and foremost, Applegarth is a Restaurant, Farm Shop & Cookery School – a business which thrives on human interactions. Like many others, we find ourselves in an unprecedented moment of crisis where we must minimise our contact with others – all for the greater good.
Ever resourceful, resolute and trying to do the best for both our employees and our community, we are finding ways to keep the wheels turning by offering home delivery and click & collect on groceries, household items & restaurant-grade takeaway meals. After all, just because dining out isn’t an option at the moment, it doesn’t mean you can’t eat in with some seriously good food & drink.
Thank you for continuing to support us by enjoying our offer from home. We look forward to welcoming you back to our Restaurant and Cookery School when the situation improves.
We’ll be updating this FAQ page regularly and please check the website for our current menu as well as a full list of the products & partners we’re working with.
IS THE FARM SHOP OPEN?
Yes. Although, please only visit the shop if you are not displaying symptoms of the virus and are able to maintain a 2-metre distance from other shoppers as well as our employees. To minimise the risk of cross-contamination, all cooked meats are now pre-cut and vac-packed instead of cut to order and we kindly ask you to pay by contactless instead of chip & pin or cash

Fresh fruit & vegetables
Delicatessen produce including homemade savoury pastries, salads, cheeses, cooked meats
Larder staples such as pasta, rice, flour, tins, sauces etc.
