Curry Mallet Village Shop and Post Office
In our small village there is a small but perfectly formed example of the village shop, which is a proper tardis, full of home-made food too tasty to ignore and where you will be sure of a friendly welcome. Whilst there you can stop awhile, enjoy a cup of frothy coffee or a pot of tea and tuck into cake whilst watching the world go by. If you are thinking of visiting as a group it’s always worth calling ahead to bag a table (01823 480236) as space is limited.
As a village shop and post office Phil and Jane Scott aim to supply all the needs of the community on a daily basis. The post office offers its usual services, plus cash-back, paying-in facilities, foreign exchange and phone card top-ups, as well as the shop providing all the basics – milk, bread, eggs, and vegetables.
The shop also supplies household goods, stationery, a good supply of cards, newspapers and much more. There is also a dry-cleaning, laundry and shoe repair service. You can order your bread, newspapers, including Sunday papers and you can even buy a health lottery ticket. And if you have a regular prescription from Langport health centre, then you can use the collection service.
For fresh bread, pasties and croissants, please ring us on 01823 480236 an hour before you collect and we will bake to order for you.
To establish your needs, wants and desires it is important to know what you want… and equally what you don’t want! If there is something that you think the shop should provide, or you would like something put by please contact Phil and Jane.
The shop is open 8.00am to 5.30pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, and from 8.00am to 1.00pm on Wednesdays. At the weekend, opening hours are 8.30am to 5.00pm on Saturdays, and from 9.00am till 1.00pm on Sundays. Please bear in mind that the Post Office closes half an hour before the shop does, and on Sundays will be available for cash only (but please bear in the mind that the post goes at 4.00 Monday to Saturday).
There are picnic benches under the tree on the Green for customers’ use.
