This is a small shop selling touristy but quality produce within a small shopping arcade consisting of tea cafes and smart shops. There is a relatively small range of beers on offer but this is probably more to do with the space available. As a relative local I didn't have a massive choice but if you are visiting the area there will be plenty to go at in here. You are left to make your choices but help is available if the shop isn't busy. Prices are okay for the area. Well worth a look if in Broadway.

Nice little independent store tucked away down a pleasant shopping arcade off of the main high street. 30-40 local beers, probably about the same number of local ciders, including some I didn’t see stocked elsewhere. Also sells a decent selection of spirits (including some locals/micros) if you like that sort of thing, and lots of jams, chutneys and so on. Beats Budgens to the best bottled beer & cider range in town, although the prices are higher than Budgens (about on a par with the Evesham cluster of farm shops).The service was friendly and they seemed to know their stock. One of the main car parks in Broadway is just out the back of the arcade, so you won’t have to carry your purchases far. Definitely worth a visit if you’re in or near the village. If you like tea, make sure you also visit the tea shop called "Tea Ink" at the front of the arcade too - great tea, and the proprietor is the most knowledgeable and enthusiastic tea purveyor I’ve ever met (and will do you a mini sample pack of any tea for 50p, which makes it easy to try them all!).
