Store Tea Room Services

A little about the Store

Ewelme Village Store is a not-for-profit community initiative, run and operated by daily managers and local volunteers. Any profits made will either be re-invested in the store or the local community.

We are a friendly store, welcoming villagers, visitors and walkers.  We are a popular stop for an increasing number of cyclists who enjoy the use of our pump, inner tubes and recently upgraded toilet facilities.  Our Tea Room offers a range of hot and cold drinks, sandwiches, bacon rolls, soup and homemade cakes.  We can cater for larger groups and would appreciate some advance notice.

The store sells a range of basic groceries, fresh bread, fruit and vegetables, frozen foods, and newspapers.  We have a licence to sell alcohol and stock wine, beer, cider and a limited range of spirits including our best-selling locally distilled Twisting Spirit gin.

In line with our commitment to the community the store also offers a range of services.

Cyclists

We welcome all cyclists to the store and have a supply of inner tubes, plus the use of a bicycle pump if needed.  We are a great stop for cyclists any day of the week.  Somewhere for you to refuel, bask in the sun (or watch the rain!) and have a well deserved cake with your tea or coffee.  We have a toilet available for customers to use along with protein rich snacks as well as the usual confectionary, cakes and sandwiches, to give you an energy boost for the remainder of your bike ride.
