Medbourne Village Shop and Post Office

Medbourne is very fortunate that it retains its Village Shop and Post Office. Proprietor Kerry Flavell and her equally friendly staff maintain this hub of the village by providing a very wide range of goods and services. Regular travellers along the B664, visitors and residents of nearby villages all make use of this facility, in addition to the locals.

The shop is open every day except Bank Holidays. See Shop Facts below for the opening times, including those for the Post Office counter and post collection times.

There is a special emphasis on fresh foods with tea and coffee, hot and cold rolls and half-baguettes, soup, home-baked cakes and a deli counter. The latter features excellent ham, cheeses, sausage rolls and pasties, quiche, samosas and bhajis. Food bought on the premises can be consumed at picnic tables on the green opposite the shop.

The fresh theme continues with daily fresh bread and milk, locally produced eggs, fresh vegetables, bacon, sausages, butter etc. Fresh food, which is regularly delivered, can be ordered in advance:

  • Fresh fruit and vegetables are delivered daily Tuesday - Saturday and can be ordered up until 4pm the day before you would like to collect them.
  • Fresh milk and cream is delivered daily Monday-Saturday and again orders can be placed up until 4pm the day before you would like them. 
  • Joseph Morris butchers deliver Tuesday and Friday. Orders can be placed up until 3pm the day before you would like to collect. 

An excellent range of general groceries are stocked including local Medbourne honey.

Frozen foods are available which also feature delicious ready-meals prepared by Clarkes of Queniborough.

The shop also serves as a newsagent with daily papers, magazines and comics. Along with these are sweets, chocolates, cigarettes, ice cream, crisps etc. Also greeting cards and wrapping paper.

Humour found here!

Also an off-licence, there is a useful selection of beers, wines and spirits.

Laundry and dry cleaning can be left at the shop; the turnaround time is typically three days, however this service has been suspended during the coronavirus pandemic. There is also a board outside the shop for local notices.
