Shop & Cafe

Right in the heart of the village, opposite Lady Waterford Hall, Ford Village Shop has been serving this small and isolated community for over half a century. Our good old-fashioned service is complimented by the latest technology and up to the minute information. Our shop stocks all your favourite big brands, and plenty of great locally produced products too!

DSC00971Here at Ford Village Shop we like to make sure that we’re well stocked with general goods, essential items, and the best tasty treats!  From everyday essential services, such as a Post Office, banking facilities, plus a cash point for withdrawing cash from linked banks. You can also order you travel money for next day delivery!  You can get insurance and savings services through our Post Office counter.
Then of course there’s our free in-store WiFi Internet access so you can keep in touch with the office, send emails, upload your snaps to social media, or just order your groceries from us for collection when it’s convenient to you.


Staying at a local holiday cottage? Simply order your holiday provisions, sweets and treats and newspapers online with us before you arrive, and they’ll be ready and waiting for you when you do.

Whether you’re a local dropping in to pick up our fabulous daily bread, which is baked locally, with your morning paper, or a visitor looking for guides, books and maps, or something special to take home from your holiday, you’ll find everything you need, right under one roof.

We’re right at the heart of village life: You can pop in for a chat, a hot or cold drink and something to eat on the terrace; pick up a newspaper or a magazine to read, or just browse and see what we have inside. And if we don’t have what you’re looking for, just ask, and we’ll be delighted to order it for you.

There’s always a great range of snacks in stock; perfect for mid-morning munchies, lunchtime, a treat in the afternoon, or a quick bite on the go. Our chunky pasties and sausage rolls are locally made, and very very tasty.
