Welcome to Chiddingly Community Shop - a modern community shop with postal services, Wi-Fi and a cafe - in an ancient Doomsday village.
Chiddingly is surrounded by beautiful countryside and a host of local producers still growing, farming, cooking, baking and brewing wonderful produce that the shop stocks - local bread, meat, cheese, eggs, vegetables, ales and greetings cards. We also stock everyday groceries and household goods as well as Sussex produced gift ideas - in fact everything that you would expect from a great village shop.
The shop is run by manager Caroline Rasmussen and a wonderful team of village volunteers who extend a very warm welcome to everyone.
We promote an ethos of responsible packaging and recycling by stocking refill items like olive oil and Ecover washing liquid; and having our own Chiddingly Shop 'bags for life'. We're stockists of a good range of Brighton-based Infinity products too.
The shop acts as village hub providing information on community events, green issues and local producers.
Our cafe serves freshly made sandwiches and toasties, delicious village-made cakes, freshly ground coffees such as cappucinos and lattes, savoury pastries and paninis. Oh, and an ice cream freezer for hot days!
There's easy parking right outside and we even have our own outside seating area.
