This is the story of a foodie adventure launched by JoJo and Barrie Thomson

On 13 October 2015 we threw open the doors to The High Street Delicatessen in Newtown, in beautiful mid-Wales. Newtown is a historic market town, with a rich tradition of rural food production, and it feels timely to be part of a new movement to explore that heritage – and the wider Welsh food scene – and to bring great produce to local people


We are excited about “bringing great tastes to the high street” and sharing our passion for local food provenance and independent producers

For 2 years, Mrs Deli (JoJo) has been meeting local people and tantalising them with the ‘scrummy’, ‘local’ and ‘homemade’ tastes of her baking at The Schoolroom Kitchen During that time, many people have asked ‘where can we get your cakes and bakes

At the same time, Mr Deli (Barrie) has been writing his blog ‘Bookends and BinEnds

Together, we will bring  you a passionate appreciation of great food, a strong belief in local produce and an enthusiasm for great customer service
