A.Gold shop, Spitalfields, London
We're open Monday - Friday 10-4pm, weekends 11-5pm.
Welcome to A.Gold. We like to think of ourselves as a village shop in the City where you can buy a sandwich made to order, a cup of slow-brewed Monmouth filter coffee, a bag of traditional sweets and a homemade Scotch egg for later...read more about A.Gold
Homemade Scotch eggs
Royal grocer Fortnum & Mason claim to have invented Scotch eggs in the 18th Century. From such majestic beginnings they have become a rather nasty supermarket snack food but proper homemade Scotch eggs are a revelation.
We make them fresh every weekday (unless we're making homemade sausage rolls - but that's another story). A free-range boiled egg is encased in seasoned sausage meat, rolled in breadcrumbs and deep-fried. They are satisfying, truly delicious and have a loyal (some might say fanatic) following - we sell dozens a day. Try it cut in half with a dollop of hot English mustard.
If you can't get to the shop, or we've sold out (an all too common occurance), what about making your own? Our recipe is on the Cooking page.
Proper Marmalade from Cranfields
Multi-award winning and now re-branded as 'Proper Marmalade', Cranfields Seville and Pink Grapefruit marmalades really are the best of the best. In fact, their Pink Grapefruit was offically the World's Best Marmalade in 2012.
Both are handmade in Devon and packed with zesty fruit and peel. Properly good. www.cranfieldsfoods.co.uk
JULY 2014: We have 2013 King's Cross honey from Urban Bees. We will also have London Fields honey from end of July.

Jack of Clubs beer
'Jack of Clubs' is a bottle-conditioned, light ruby ale made by Wild Card Brewery. Malty sweetness gives way to a balanced hoppy bitterness from a blend of fragrant American hops.
This fine beer is complimented by a beautifully designed playing card label.
Wild Card have opened a rather fantastic bar in the industrial unit where they brew. Head over to Walthamstow to hang out at Unit 7, Ravenswood Industrial Estate, Shernhall Street E17 9HQ. Alc. 4.5% vol. www.wildcardbrewery.co.uk
'Beautiful Flavour, Delicious Rich Cup' it says on the tin and we can only agree. A strong but smooth full-bodied blended tea made from loose East African leaves.
A firm favourite, customers buy tins and tins of it, sometimes so much we wonder how they can possibly drink it all.
