The CockerDeli Delicatessen in North Walsham is a treat for those with a passion for good quality, local produce (and that from further a field if it’s up to scratch).
Small, but perfectly formed in a brick out-building on the same site as The Cockerel Restaurant, the Deli stocks cheese, bread, pies, charcuterie, veg, drinks, sauces, jams, cereals and cakes. Products you’ll find inside include Bray’s Cottage renowned Pork Pies, Essence Conserves (divine), Mrs Temple’s cheeses, bread from the Metfield Bakery and milk from Nortons Dairy.
CockerDeli also stocks delicious homemade cakes and scones (made in the next-door restaurant kitchen), fresh homemade soup and homemade ready meals to take away – ideal if you’re on holiday in the area.
If you fancy a picnic lunch to go, but don’t want the hassle of making it yourself, why not stop in for one of the CockerDeli’s fab filled flatbreads or sandwiches. With the emphasis on high quality ingredients, these are sure to be some of the best sandwiches you’ll ever taste.
All tastes are well catered for within the Deli (Vegetarian Scotch Eggs, for example), and we noticed that many items have been awarded Great Taste Awards. Not surprisingly I suppose when all items have to pass the owners Mark and Claire Rushen’s own rigorous taste tests before inclusion in the Deli.
With the emphasis on well-produced food and drink without chemicals and preservatives, you won’t find the average, mass-produced treats from the usual high-street brands. You will, however, find tasty, delightful groceries made with fabulous ingredients, sold in a modern, convenient way from a forward-looking deli with reassuringly traditional values. Perfect.
The Cockerel also offers outside catering with its ‘Flying Cockerel’ service. Please visit the Cockerel website for further information.
