We were delighted to be awarded the title of Bristol Deli of the Year 2012 at the Bristol Good Food Awards 2012 in July.
A massive thank you to everyone who voted for us.
The judges, an independent panel of experts from the food industry including buyers, retailers and journalists, singled us out from over 120 delis (from a total of over 400 nominations).
It’s really rewarding to get this recognition for the work the team at Arch House Deli have been doing over the last 18 months in creating the type of deli we believe the people of Bristol want and deserve and we'd like to say a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who voted for us!
The Deli of the Year competition is an idea created and organised by Olives Et Al, an artisan food producer in Dorset, as a way of raising the awareness of delis everywhere and helping them get real feedback from their customers in a way that is both supportive and helpful to business owners.
We received fantastic feedback from our customers as part of the voting process, read what they had to say about the deli and our teamDavid and Debbie receiving their award

'Best New Cheese Retailer' - Runner Up 2010 - The British Cheese Awards
We are pleased to announce that we have been awarded the Best New Cheese Retailer 2010 runner up slot at The British Cheese Awards in Cardiff (September 2010). Since taking over Arch House Deli just under a year ago we (David Greenman and Debbie Atherton) have put a focus on extending the range, quality and service associated with our cheese counter.
“We have found the key to developing our business has been all about listening to customers. Cheese, like many specialist foods, can be intimidating to the uninitiated and as a result many, in fact probably the majority of people, play safe and go for pre-wrapped supermarket mild cheddar. By allowing customers to sample the cheese, providing plenty of point of sale information and by talking with them, and more importantly listening to them, we have been able to convert many to the delights of various artisan cheeses.” David Greenman
The focus Arch House Deli have put on the range and quality of the cheese counter, staff training programme and exciting range of cheese related services were recognised by The British Cheese Awards against stiff competition from across the whole of the UK.
