[Cheshire, Wilmslow] Cheshire Smokehouse

Harters | May 11, 2008 03:12 AM

My local “specialist food shop”.

A good range of the usual suspects in the jam, pickle, chutney ranges – Demels, Tracklements and the like. But you visit for their smoked-on-the premises items…..notably salmon and haddock. There are top class and I wouldn’t buy smoked haddock from anywhere else.

I like the bacon – several different cures (smoked or green) and usually available as back, middle or streaky. The “Wilmslow Porky” sausages are a perfect thick breakfast sausage

They also have the most fab smoked nuts – a mix of cashew and almonds being my favourite. They now market these around the country packaged as “Real Smoked Nuts”.

Reasonable range of cheeses – although all are pre-packaged. As are the sliced hams and so on. Fresh local meat is also always available (although Monday is a bad day to visit as it’s the butcher’s day off and stocks can be low). The free-range pork is particularly good and not too breathtakingly expensive.

Oh, yes – and they have a caff, serving smokehouse produce. And a wine department and bakery.

I never seem to be able to visit and get away with spending less than fifty quid – even if I went intending only to get some olives.
