Lawson's Delicatessen is a much-loved shop in Aldeburgh on the Suffolk coast.
We are a friendly, welcoming shop selling carefully sourced food including artisan cheese, charcuterie, olives and chutneys. We are delighted to celebrate the quality and diversity of food and drink produced in Suffolk such as Pump Street Bakery's bread and chocolate, Pinney's smoked fish and High House’s fruit and apple juice.
From January 2017 Lawson's is under the ownership of Clare Jackson and John Omerod, a father and daughter team.
We are committed to offering the same friendly service from the same knowledgeable team and high quality produce. We will also introduce some exciting new products including serving Monmouth Coffee to take away and ground beans to use at home.
If you're in Aldeburgh do call in and say hello!
