A natural addition to Crates is our Coffee Shop, serving amazing coffee from Horsham Coffee Roaster and speciality teas from Bird&Blend. All of our pastries, sandwiches and soft drinks are of course made up from the local produce we already have in the Crates Local shop. In the summer we create tasty salads featuring the famous Nutbourne tomatoes and during winter we switch to nourishing daily soups.

The choice of produce available from the shop is extensive from fruit and vegetables, artisan bread, dairy, cheese, eggs, cakes, soft drinks, jams, chutneys and even handmade chocolate. The shop also boasts a fine range of local wines from Bolney Wine Estate, Beacon Down Vineyard, Chapel Down, beers from local breweries such as Loud Shirt and Firebird, ciders from Wobblegate, Garden Cider and Trenchmore Farm‘s Silly Moo.

Our main stays on our crates include Brighton Gin, Horsham’s very own Cabin Pressure . Other wonderful creations include four from The Gin Kitchen; Gutsy Monkey, Blushing Monkey, Ginger Cat & Dancing Dragontail together with Pure Sussex and Sussex Blue from Harley House, a trio from Sherlock & Sons, the Greensand Ridge collection,  Generation 11, Hidden Curiosities, Madame Jennifer’s trio.
