A.Gold shop, Spitalfields, London
Merry Christmas from A.Gold
We're open weekdays 10-4pm & weekends 12-5pm
At Christmas we have extended opening hours.
Welcome to A.Gold at Christmas. We like to think of ourselves as a village shop in the City and Christmas is a very special time for us, when our tiny historic shop is packed with seasonal goodies.
Alongside our shelf goods and provisions, we have a select range of fresh produce especially for Christmas read more about our Christmas produce...
We have new season Postcode honey from Barnes & Webb
Follow us on Twitter for our latest honey updates.
A fantastic sauce for all homesick Northerners and curious Southerners. Henderson's Relish is a fruity and spicy sauce made in Sheffield for over 100 years to a closely guarded secret recipe.
Boasting a fierce and loyal following (we're talking tattoos here), Hendo's can be used in so many ways - to flavour roast meats, soups and stews, to add flavour and depth to anything from homemade coleslaw to a cheese toastie.
Please note: we now have more Campbell's Tea - both in tins and in refill packs
'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.
For those of you who love the tin but love the tea more, we now have the handy refill packs, ideal to top-up your tin with.

A.Gold Salad Bar
In true A.Gold style, we lay out a rather special salad bar during weekday lunchtimes. Like our sandwich fillings and hot food, everything is prepared from fresh ingredients each morning in our kitchen upstairs.
You can add the special filling of the day to your salad box or any of the meats, cheeses, smoked salmon, pies or a Scotch egg from the deli cabinet. Alternatively, go light and just have the salad.
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.
