About Shop Open Days

We try to hold one Shop Open Day per month, generally featuring the treasures we've brought back from our most recent travels in Africa.

Food and drink in Meltham

If you're coming to the shop for an Open Day - or by appointment - you've got plenty of excellent options for grabbing a bite to eat in Meltham, all less than five minutes away walking. Here are some of our favourites, in no particular order.

Café 33

Our pal Gemma and her team are always busy in this welcoming, home-style café. Bob always has pie and peas, except when he has Yorkshire pudding piled with roast beef and gravy. Magie loves her toasties. Best espresso and cappucino in Meltham. Highly rated at 4.5 on Tripadvisor.

Two Valleys Deli

A Meltham institution and the only place to go for takeaway sandwiches - especially bacon and sausages reared on the family farm. Best pork  pies and Scotch eggs on the planet. A good choice of cheeses and salad boxes as well. Top rated 5.0 on Tripadvisor.

4 Green End Road, HD9 5NW

If you're visiting the shop, why not drop by Cafe 33 for lunch? We love it.

Accommodation around Meltham

Given that we are right in the glorious Pennines, we're amazed that Meltham doesn't have more accommodation right here in the village.

Micro apartment, Meltham village centre

CPS Estate Agents here in the village lets out a lovely micro apartment right in the village centre at a reasonable £49 per night.

Other than that, try Airbnb, etc. for options in the area, including in Holmfirth.
