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:

• PLEASE NOTE – Face coverings must be worn whilst in the stores by all customers.
• The café at the Stores is now open, but we are only able to currently offer outside seating as well as our take away service. We are also supporting the NHS Test and Trace service.
• We have introduced a 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 the coronavirus pandemic we have been providing a free delivery service within the local area to anyone that is unable to, or wishes not to, leave their home for essentials. Due to the positive response for this service we are pleased to confirm this will be continuing with a revised service, for the foreseeable future. From 1 August the delivery days will be every Tuesday and Friday, with a choice of a morning or afternoon delivery slot. We will knock and leave your shopping (including receipt) at your door with no contact.

Delivery areas are: West Dean, Binderton, Chilgrove, Singleton, Charlton and East Dean.

For Tuesday delivery, please order before 11am on Monday.
For Friday delivery, please order before 11am on Thursday.

Card payments only please.
£20 minimum order.

To place an order for take-away or pre-order for eat in, please call us on 01243 818222. Payment should be made over the phone when ordering.

We’re pleased to be able to re-open our outside seating areas. We will be asking all customers that are eating on premises to provide contact details for the lead person of the party. These will be kept for 21 days and then if asked will be provided to NHS Test and Trace. Please be assured that all information will be stored securely, in line with data protection law. It is entirely optional, however we do highly recommend providing your details. We are doing this to help reduce the risk of any local outbreak. By sharing your information NHS Test and Trace can quickly identify people who have come into contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 and ask them to take the necessary precautions.

We offer delicious freshly ground coffee and tea. Cream teas are available every day along with a choice of hot and cold snacks such as bacon sandwiches or O’Hagans sausage floured baps, freshly made sandwiches and a range of scrummy fresh cakes and pastries.

We are currently offering a reduced menu, please call the stores for an up to date list of what is available.
