The Pickled Fig is a delicatessen and fine food store with a small artisan bakery, building a formidable reputation for its excellent selections of cheeses, charcuterie, freshly baked artisan breads, cakes, pastries, gourmet sandwiches, and the various fine foods on the shelves. Stocking products from as near as Yorkshire to as far away as South America. Cheese selections rarely fall below 50 to choose from and the wines you just wouldn't get in the supermarket.
Your local deli is now online!
You can now shop online at The Pickled Fig. We all know, it's been a tough time of late for everyone, least of all small businesses. We've been working very hard to bring our products to more of you by building an online shop. And it's ready!
The majority of our products are available for nationwide delivery with the exception of the Takeaway and Made2Order categories (local customers only). From cheese, wine and grocery items to boxes of delicious homemade traybakes and our luxury, modern hampers and gifts.
For local customers, we offer a Takeaway food service of gourmet sandwiches with freshly baked breads, homemade fillings and delicious items from our deli counter. A daily range of homemade sweets, freshly made soups, jacket potatoes (made in an original King Edward oven) and much more.
Takeaway orders require at least two hours notice. We ask that orders for lunchtime be in by 10am, however where possible.
In addition to our takeaway service, we offer a Made2order service for bigger portions of our homemade produce and cheese boards. Perfect for feeding the family or your guests. Also only available for local customers. Boxes of multiple bakery items are available for Nationwide delivery, though.
We kindly ask for approximately two days notice for Made2order items.

The Pickled Fig try to keep around 50 different cheeses in stock at any one time. If you live locally and able to pop into the shop, tasters are always available, please just ask.
As well as the favourites we also love to stock cheese you can't get at the supermarket so you can always expect to see something you haven't tried before when you buy from us.
Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 some producers have had to temporarily halt production so we are running a lower number of cheeses but we still have some great ones in stock, including pre-cut and truckle options.
Check out our current list of cheeses available now.

"Been here several times recently and never fails to disappoint. The coffee and biscoff brownies are amazing! Also had an incredible wine and cheese evening here which I can’t rave enough about! Particular favourite was the Sancerre Rose with the driftwood ash goats cheese (and a drizzle of honey!) - it was heaven! Can’t recommend enough!"
