We moved to Nailsworth last April, and already feel part of this fantastic community.  In the light of the new government measures to fight COVID-19, the food and hospitality industry is going to be really badly hit, but as a community we can try and ensure that our fabulous eateries survive. I thought it would be useful to have one place where you can see who is still open, who is offering to deliver or offering new take home options.  A way of keeping our local businesses going in these unprecedented times, as well as making sure that no-one in the community goes hungry.

I will keep this updated, so if you are a local business in the Nailsworth and wider Stroud community who would like to be added to this post, please email me on young.kirstie@yahoo.com

Williams Food Hall

In view of the government’s announcement last night, we will be closing the doors of Williams at lunchtime today. We will, however, remain open for another week for orders for both collection and delivery. So there is still plenty of time to do one last big order and fill the freezer. Orders can be placed by phone (mornings only) or email at info@williamsfoodhall.co.uk
Stay safe and well everyone.

Thistledown Farm and Cafe


We are planning to not operate a takeaway or drop in shop service this week. It’s a tough call but given the developments across Europe I think it’s the most sensible option. We are going to look into our options going forward, as we’d love to be able to supply people with our food – especially as nutritious, fermented foods can help boost your immune system (we’ll post some recipes soon) – but we need to ensure we are doing it in a way that is responsible, sustainable and economical.

We may be able to offer local veg, bread, milk, eggs, meat and other groceries in the longer term as a box scheme, with strict pickup controls and no staff coming in from offsite to work. I feel that this is potentially a good alternative to a supermarket shop at the moment, but we’ll see how the situation develops. If you’re interested in this please email cafe@thistledown.org.uk.
