As you know, we find ourselves in unprecedented times as we all look to what we can do to slow the threat of Coronavirus. This makes it vital that as a community we continue to pull together and look out for one another and West Dean Stores will continue to operate for as long as possible during this period.

In response to the Government’s latest instruction to stop non-essential contact with others, to help safeguard everyone’s health and well-being:
• The café at the Stores is closed until further notice, but we are pleased to offer a take-away service
• We have introduced a new delivery service to support our tenants and neighbours
• We are working with the Parish Council to bring together a community support group, further supported by fellow residents


During this time we are offering a free delivery service to those in the West Dean area, that are unable to, or wish not to, leave their homes for essentials that you may need.

To place an order please call the stores on 01243 818 222 to place your order and pay by 11am (card payments only please). If items are out of stock we will substitute with an alternative where possible. Delivery will be made the next day with a choice of a morning or afternoon delivery, where we will knock then leave your delivery (including receipt) at your door with no contact.

At West Dean Stores you’ll find an array of essentials and local produce, including freshly baked cakes made in West Dean to enjoy in the Tea Room or tray bakes to take away. Look out for apple juice made with apples from orchard at West Dean Gardens.

The shop also stocks fresh fruit and vegetables, free range Rookery Farm eggs and has daily deliveries from Bread of Heaven bakery in Haslemere, who provide a variety of loaves and speciality breads, as well as rolls, cakes and pastries.

If you’re in a hurry take away hot drinks and a range of freshly made sandwiches and rolls are available, all prepared on the day. Or, why not try a convenient high quality, chef-prepared ready meal from the LoveFood range? We also sell wines, cider and other beverages, local honey and a selection of Deerview speciality preserves, chutneys and sauces along with all of those household essentials.
