At West Dean Stores you’ll find an array of essentials and local produce, including locally made cakes 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 Sodt bakery in Petworth, 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 Gourmade 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.
