Southwick General Store & Post Office
Southwick is a small village, on the outskirts of Fareham and Portsmouth, known as the ‘Overlord Village’. Southwick House, where Churchill, Montgomery and Eisenhower planned the D-Day Landings, is now the home of the Defence Police College, Southwick Park (late HMS Dryad).
The village is privately owned by the squire, Mr Thistlethwayte. All the houses within the village have deep red doors so can easily be spotted.
The shop is the only one in the village and pays an important part of village, it is essential to the heart and history of Southwick.
The theme of the store is to provide a typical village store service with provisions needed on a day to day basis, we strive to put on the shelf those everyday items that you may have forgotten or run out of. We can not and do not want to compete with the larger supermarket chains.
There is a Post Office within the store, run by Sub Postmaster Paula Walters, and is open Monday to Saturday 9am to 1pm. When the Post Office is closed then first class stamps are available at the till.
Please come in and sample the home made goodies. Which include the infamous “Southwick” Cornish pasty, home-made sausage rolls (secret recipe), along with a few naughties like Cream scones, apple turnovers, rocky road, etc.
Bobs is now able to hand make his own bread products, freshly made every day. Bob is experimenting and has made cheese bread, spelt flour, as well as caraway bread and sour doughs. He has also been asked by a few of our regulars to add a few of there own ingredients.
As some know, Adrian has been taken poorly and is looking at a long term recovery. It is my pleasure to introduce you to our newest member of staff, Joe.
