Ordered their breakfast sandwich and a coffee. For £11.60 I did have high expectations. It was very underwhelming, very greasy (and buttery), unseasoned, and sausages very overdone. I didn’t finish the sandwich. Service was friendly. Coffee was good. 3 for atmosphere but don’t judge on that as it’s on a quiet little village so understandably no one else was there.

Superb! We were on holiday in Appledore and popped into Johns deli to get some treats. Wow, we were blown away by the choice and stocked up for the week – no need to go anywhere else for provisions (we ate out locally on several nights of our stay). The service was excellent – very personalised when I was asking for recommendations and without the usual ‘sales pitch’ designed to make me spend more than planned (I did that anyway though😂😂). The quality of everything we tried – local cheeses, pies and other deli specials – was top notch and we bought a few extra jars of jams, chutneys and marmalade to take home with us. We also tried the best breakfast butty as a birthday treat one morning – a wonderful messy meal which kept us going all day. So good that we had another the following day which was equally impressive. Thank you so much, we’re already looking forward to our next visit!

Went there with my sister on a day out. Nice little take away. Freshly made waffles. I got the strawberry and cream waffle. And a take away tea in a fully recyclable cup. The waffle was lovely and staff very nice.

Deli looked great inside clean well stocked ,fine if expensive cheese display .Decided to order for a brunch on the quayside .Black tea ,pork pie and cheese baguette with red onion marmalade .Tea arrived ten minutes before the food .the Pork pie looked great ,but very disappointed, bland underspiced filling ,and shockingly absolutely no gelatine that should be in every pp that hits the shelves.Consequently a lot of air inside the crust .No excuses. The baguette was presented in a bag made with grated cheese ,not sliced and much of the cheese already in the bag.Really ridiculous trying to eat this as the baguette had been filled with lettuce and tomatoes with cheese last ,so much of the cheese simply fell out into the bag ,sloppily made in my view .Cheese first please then salad .The Red onion marmalade was bitter and didn't work for me especially with the excess salad .So disgusted half of it got junked into a bin as l had no intention of scooping the cheese out of the bag with fingers .At over £9 for the baguette it was very very poor, made in a rush with a long wait ,grated cheese is a poor choice if you stand for quality and good value .On this basis avoid .
