The village shop and post office (local) situated in the Market Square sells everything from apples to zinfandel. If you can’t find it here, you probably don’t need it!

Owned and run by Richard and Joan O’Sullivan, the shop is open from 7 am to 7 pm, Monday to Saturday (post office closes 6.30), and 8am to 12 midday Sundays and bank holidays.  (Only closed Christmas day).

Fresh bread, fruit and vegetables and milk are delivered daily, as well as newspapers and magazines.

They also bake rolls, croissants and pastries every morning creating an aroma that tempts even the most virtuous.

Being a Londis shop, there is always a range of promotions which compete head-on with the big supermarkets.
