Butterworths StaffAs one business shuts its doors in New Romney High Street, another had its much anticipated opening. Butterworth’s Deli opened its doors this morning (Friday 27th November) when New Romney Mayor, Patricia Rolfe, cut the ribbon to declare the shop ‘Officially Open’
This comes in the same week that the National Westminster Bank finally closed, leaving only Lloyds Bank to service the whole of the Romney Marsh.
However, some of the friendly staff who worked at NatWest have found employment in the new deli.
The store sells bespoke pre-packaged frozen meals and desserts from the “Cook” range, which really is a major benefit for the residents of the Marsh, to be able to enjoy ‘home-cooked quality food’ at sensible prices.
Proprietor, Peter Butterworth, told The Looker: “Not only is the food great, but its actually very good value too, it’s save time, effort and is stress free cooking”
The food is laid out in categories with meals for one, two or more including buffet foods.
As well as the pre-packed frozen meals, the shop also sells fresh, locally sourced bread, cheeses and meats and other store cupboard essentials.
Looker Editor Annabel said: “Having a shop like this in New Romney really has raised the profile of the High Street, the food that Butterworth’s Deli is more than a match for Marks and Spencer’s or Waitrose and its on our doorstep’.”
As Mayor Patricia Rolfe opened the delicatessen she commented that it was ‘Fantastic that a shop selling a wide range of top quality food has opened in the High Street, and it will be good for the other businesses’ of the town as Butterworth’s is sure to attract more people to the town.”
The Looker wish the shop well and hope that when our readers call into the shop they mention that they read about it in The Looker.
