Independent Grocery Store

Find out about changes we’ve made to the way we operate.

We are doing everything we can to keep our customers and staff safe during the current pandemic.

Store opening hours have been reduced to allow for extra cleaning and also so staff can pick and pack orders for delivery and collection. Both of these services are done on an individual basis. Please email with your requirements and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Please keep checking our social media feed located at the bottom of our homepage, for any changes to normal store opening days/times. We will always post any planned days off or last minute changes there.

We have made some changes to our store to make sure we are following current government guidelines for retailers operating during Covid-19. These include:

  • Placing a barrier at the door. We are limiting customer numbers in the store. A member of staff will let you know when there is room.

  • Introducing a queue system for those waiting to come in. Tape on the pavement outside the store indicates distances of 2 metres.

  • Placing hand sanitiser at the door.

  • Moving furniture inside the store to make social distancing easier.

  • Placing crosses on the shop floor to indicate distances of 2 metres.

  • Investing in a screen around the till area to protect customers and staff while payment is being made.

  • Staff will wash or use hand sanitiser on their hands as necessary. The card machine will be wiped down afterwards if a customer needs to enter their PIN and baskets will be sanitised after each use.

Things customers can do to help:

  • Be prepared to wait. You may need to queue outside, so a coat and umbrella may be advisable.

  • Observe social distancing both inside and outside of the store.

  • Use the hand sanitiser provided (you are also welcome to bring your own). Gloves are not recommended unless you are putting on a fresh pair as you enter the store. If you prefer not to use hand sanitise, a member of staff will be happy to gather your shopping for you. Just let us know.

  • Try to keep the number of people in your shopping party to a minimum (bear in mind we are a small store).

  • Listen to any instructions given by staff members. We will try our best to make sure your shopping experience is as safe and simple as possible.

Food Glorious Food! is an independent family business. Established in 2018, we position ourselves as an independent grocery store stocking a good selection of quality food products. Our aim is to offer a choice of fabulous goodies to tempt you with. You’ll find an impressive range of products available on our shelves, from local producers to premium brands.

Whether it’s store cupboard essentials, a tasty condiment or a fancy box of chocolates that you’re after, we are here to help. Being big fans of food generally, we will give you honest opinions and advice. We are also happy to order products in especially for you, where possible – just tell a member of staff what you’re after and if we are able to order it in for you, we will! Pop in for a chat and a browse – no charge for either!


We are continuously putting new products on our shelves. Can’t find what you’re looking for? Give us a shout and we’ll see if it is available to us.


Please note, our click and collect shop does not include every single product available on our shelves. We are happy to do bespoke orders to include any products that you would normally buy from us, but don’t appear in our click and collect shop, or that you have seen as recent additions to our offering via our social media pages. Please email us at to discuss you requirements.

We are also able to offer a limited amount of free local delivery slots each week (or delivery via a courier for a fee). Please email if this is of interest.

🚶‍♀️🚶‍♀️@glorious__dawn and @flossie_dossie6 went on a lunchtime jaunt to the coffee den at @rockit_home yesterday in search of sustenance. They were not disappointed...😍🥪🍔☕Bacon, brie & (homemade) cranberry sauce toastie and Rockit burger with chips were washed down with some rather lovely cappuccinos.😋 A wander round the shop may have occurred. Bathtub gin may have been bought...🤷‍♀️🍸@rockit_home is a proper little treasure with the benefit of good coffee and some rather lovely food! We recommend putting a little time aside in your week to have a visit...☺#shoplocal #grocerystore⭐P.S.
