Pierce Walsh's shop is the kind that every town should have but few do. Where all of their own products are fresh and additive free and, as they say themselves, there's a belief that 'quality only happens when one cares enough, and we care at John R's'.
The home baking range includes all the old favourites - traditional soda bread, fruit scones ('mother's old recipe'), fresh fruit pies (no tinned fillings), and ever-popular cakes including porter cake. Then there are the tasty homemade meals to go - and an impressive own label range, offering everything from preserves and flavoured oils to muesli and fudge.
Also hampers, for delivery anywhere in Britain & Ireland - and, the icing on the cake, Café Hannah next door offers a wholesome menu that includes many of the products on sale in the shop. A recipe for success if ever there was one.
