Post Office
“The best grocer in Britain. Well worth a visit in person for a tantalising feast of the senses, but will deliver direct to Manor Holding if asked. They have their own dairy and farm, but source most of their supplies from small local artisan Shropshire producers, whose quality they can verify.”
