Thank goodness for Waitrose in nearby Stamford.
You might find that some of the Aldi and Lidl produce is as good as Waitrose if not better.

Indeed - those items are available at all four local supermarkets. But for real food .....

Oh - and there's Otters Deli in Oakham. Top stuff.

Loved Rutland when I was posted there (2 x training courses @ RAF North Luffenham (near Edith Weston), with side jaunts to Bletchley Park) - Oakham and Stamford had some cracking pubs.

Got to visit it when I was a civvy in the 80s, as one of my brothers-in-law lived in Harringworth - the local pub had lovely pints of Pedigree and Ruddles County, and there were often "lock ins" for the locals (and their guests) as it was in the middle of nowhere, so unlikely that passing plod would interrupt.

A lot of Aldi and Lidl produce is the same as Waitrose.

In that it's literally the same food with different stickers, from the same warehouses.

Indeed Waitrose just sell it at a premium price.
