Slate is the new name Lawson’s Delicatessen in Aldeburgh and marks the next chapter for this popular Suffolk delicatessen, together with the opening of a new shop in Southwold.
This much-loved specialist food shop on Aldeburgh High Street came under the ownership of Clare Jackson and her father, John Ormerod, in January 2017. They have since fully refurbished the shop including introducing a magnificent wall of cheese. The new Southwold shop, close to Adnam’s Cellar and Kitchen, opened at the end of November.
Clare Jackson explains: “Our new name ‘Slate’ encapsulates our passion for cheese and the carefully selected range of food and drink which we offer. We will continue to focus on developing our range of quality British and European cheeses and championing cheese made in East Anglia.”
In addition to cheese, both shops offer a range of soups, salads, picnic provisions and frozen meals prepared by their chefs, alongside other delicious delicatessen products such as chutneys and preserves.
Slate’s friendly and knowledgeable team, many of whom have worked in the shop for years, enjoy sharing their enthusiasm for local produce like Pump Street Bakery bread and chocolate, Eastgate Larder Preserves, High House apple juices and fantastic local cheeses like Fen Farm Dairy’s Baron Bigod and Whitewood Dairy’s St Jude.
