Lewis & Cooper
For more than a century the Lewis & Cooper name has been associated with the finest foods and wines.
From their bustling store in the quintessential market town of Northallerton, North Yorkshire, Mr Lewis & Mr Cooper built a world-renowned gourmet emporium shipping hampers packed with local delicacies and gastronomic delights far and wide.
Lewis & Cooperís founding partners were sticklers for detail (the managersí quarters were furnished with a discreet window which enabled Mr Lewis to keep a constant vigil over his shop floor) and insisted on stocking only the finest foods, hampers and wines.
Today the tradition lives on, handed down from generation to generation, to ensure that those with a taste for the finest things in life may still acquire a food hamper or a gift basket of uncompromising quality.
Explore the nooks and crannies of the store and you will discover literally thousands of rare treats such as Chatka crab, Russian caviar and quails eggs alongside the finest York ham, handmade plum puddings, bottled fruits and North Yorkshire Moors honey on the comb. Many of our customers travel from far and wide to stock up on the delicacies they cannot obtain in their local shops.
Our extensive delicatessen counter is packed full of the finest fresh produce. We are renowned for our dry cured bacon, hams, best quality sausages, including Cumberland low-fat beef, as well as those made with a selection of herbs and spices. We sell many varieties of salami and delectable patËs from all over Europe. We are known for our stock of expertly kept cheeses, with many local Yorkshire varieties as well as those supplied direct from European cheesemongers.
Itís from this cornucopia of fine foods and wines that our hamper pickers prepare an exquisite selection of hampers to suit almost every palate & pocket.
1999 marked the centenary of Lewis & Cooper. We celebrated this milestone with the opening of our Tearooms. Freshly roasted coffees and a wide selection of teas are available, along with a very good range of delicious hot and cold snacks, hand-made cakes and sweets. In 2013, we added a new, comfortable Lounge upstairs, as well as free wifi.
