The owner, David Unsworth, likes nothing better than to share his infectious passion for the comprehensive range of different wines, gins, whiskeys, vodkas and rums that grace the shelves of this shop.
If you’re more of a real ale enthusiast, you can meet David’s brother Peter Unsworth and his brewing partner Mark Grunnill at Unsworth Yard Brewery and sample some of their craft beers, which have only been in production in relatively modest quantities since 2012.
