The Larder

Included in our Larder listings – order print copies of our national (pub. 2010) and regional guides.

Now owned by '& Son' Alan Birrell, this greengrocer is the retail outlet for a wholesale business, which perhaps explains the freshness of the varied stock. The shelves are loaded with as much local produce as the seasons will allow, with a steady stream of students coming all year round for the reasonably priced fruit and veg – not a common sight with fierce supermarket competition. Birrells proves it is possible to remain a relevant everyday high street option.
