Published:  16 February, 2016

Cumbrian master butcher Cranstons has opened its new Brampton Food Hall. 

The 2,000 square foot site located in the town’s former HSBC bank replaces Cranstons small shop in the town centre and will offer Brampton customers a much bigger range of Cranstons renowned fresh meat and delicatessen.

Guest of honour Anne Pickles cut a ribbon of sausages to officially open the Food Hall to the public as Brampton dignitaries, local suppliers and members of the public looked on.
Mr Vikkis, Claires Handmade, Brysons Bakery, Lakes Free Range Eggs, Cumberland Mustard, Kin Vodka, Appleby Creamery & Eden Brewery are some of the local brands that will be on sale alongside Cranstons produce, including their sausages, bacon, 21-day hung steaks and freshly baked pies. The Food Hall is licensed to sell a range of wine and local ales. It will also offer a hot counter serving takeaway breakfasts and lunches.

Managing director Philip Cranston said: “We have been looking to expand our retail presence in Brampton for a number of years as our old shop was very compact. The new larger Food Hall allows us to offer a much bigger range in spacious surroundings- we can now offer four times more butchery produce and three times more delicatessen produce than the old shop plus completely new ranges of local produce. We really hope the people of Brampton will enjoy shopping here.”

Manager Mark Mallinson added: “I am thrilled that we will now be able to offer our very loyal customer base in Brampton a wider range of products and produce from other local suppliers. Our customers had a great rapport with our close-knit team in the old shop so I am pleased that the whole existing shop team is moving with us along with four new sales assistants. I am really proud of the new shop, I just hope that our customers will love it too!”
