Longden PO and Shop

Come and visit us at our Multi-award winning village shop, now located alongside the Tankerville Arms pub in Longden (full breakfast menu now available Thurs -Sun mornings!), just five miles from Shrewsbury, in the heart of the Shropshire countryside. We have searched all over Shropshire for some of the best local food our County has to offer (we’ve also ventured into some of the surrounding Countryside on occasion!), and have stocked the shelves with fine goods from across our, ever-growing, network of over 50 local producers. We specialise in...

  • Local cheese from Moyden’s and Clun Valley Food
  • Local milk & cream, direct from Mawley Milk & Proper Good Dairy
  • Local farm-fresh meat, sausages, bacon & pies from Hough & Sons of Church Stretton & Wenlock Edge Farm
  • Free range eggs from local farms
  • Artisan sourdough & sliced bread daily from Robert Swift of Bread2Bake in Ludlow
  • Fresh sandwiches, pies, pasties and ready meals from Jenny’s Catering
  • Large selection of real Ales & ciders from Local Breweries
  • Handmade jams, pickles and preserves – from small, local producers
  • Compost from E4 Environmental. Peat-free and made from your green waste!
  • Fresh fruit and vegetables, locally grown whenever possible!
  • Cards and gifts designed and made by local artists

There are, of course, some things that aren’t produced locally, and with this in mind, we also stock the whole range of ‘everyday’ items and brand names you would expect to find in your local Village Store, as well as a full range of Daily Newspapers, Magazines, Greetings Cards, Household goods and Stationery items. (We've now added a selection of these to our Online Shop too - under the various 'Village Store' sections)

Originally one of two shops in the village, the General Stores and Post Office moved together to a purpose built site in 1974. The Post Office was actually located in the house next door for a long period, from the late 19th Century through to the 1930's (see photo). We took over in January 2014, Post Office Ltd fitted a modernised counter, and we totally revamped the store ready for our grand opening on 17th January. Nothing stands still for long, and the contract with Post Office Ltd has now expired. This was seen as a great opportunity to move the shop into a redundant room alongside the Tankerville Arms, just next door. We now have a little more space in store, a cafe where you can currently enjoy a tasty breakfast 4 days a week, and a car park!
