New delicatessen and bistro to open in Bourton

A new deli and bistro called Moore to Eat is due to open in Bourton-on-the-Water on April 24th.

Roger and Fiona Guy have long had the dream of running their own catering business, born and bred in Bourton-on-the-Water and Nether Westcote, they know the area and its needs very well. In February this year they found the right property and have been working towards the opening of “Moore to Eat” ever since.

The main purpose of Moore to Eat will be to sell the very best quality of food from local producers and serve delicious Bistro meals. Roger and Fiona have been sourcing produce from local suppliers for the past few months from local meats, cheeses to fruit and ice cream.

Roger said: “It is our intention to bring all the very best of our local suppliers together under one roof for the local community. Bourton-on-the-Water currently does not have a delicatessen so we are looking forward to building a local customer base, giving everyone a relaxed and informal place to eat and meet.”

Fiona continued “For the past 20 years it has been Roger’s dream to run a catering business, so we are very excited to be setting up a Delicatessen and Bistro. All the dishes on our menu will be available on a takeaway basis and we hope that people will use us for meals to make their lives easier.”

However, Moore to Eat will be more than just a delicatessen – with the best of Cotswold Butchery from Martin’s Meats – customers will be able to buy from the counter or order what they need. Other quirky innovations emphasise their philosophy of working for the community such as the Olive Oil Refill service – a tank of Olive Oil that customers can come and fill up from – recycling their olive oil bottles.

Local suppliers involved are bread, meats, olives, cheese, La Parisienne – Tewkesbury, Martin’s Meats – Toddington, Fromage to Age – Chipping Campden, Kitchen Garden - Stroud and The Cotswold Ice Cream Company.
