The Little Deli


Born out of the love of great ingredients and even better produce, The Little Deli is a family run delicatessen in the heart of Hitchin

We think there has never been a better time for amazing food in the UK. We have searched from the windswept coasts of Cornwall to the wide skies of Orkney to bring you the very best that this fair land has to offer. And we’ve brought it all to our lovely little shop in Hitchin to present you with the best cheese counter in Hertfordshire, an exciting selection of British charcuterie and chutneys & relishes to delight your tastebuds, all of which is kept in the best company by our fresh produce range of savouries, pasta & salads.

So whether you’re creating a sumptuous cheeseboard for weekend guests, a perfect picnic basket to share with friends, or simply browsing for an indulgent treat for yourself (we won’t judge), you’ll find all manner of tempting produce on our shelves.

No time to pop in to town? Don't let that curd [sorry!] your fun, order online and we will deliver to your door!



We are very excited to start on this next adventure, keen to build on the lasting legacy & love Hitchin has for The Little Deli. We have lots of exciting plans!
