Unlike supermarkets, Squisito make food so you have to order ahead since there’s no point expecting a warehouse full of food anymore than a dozen people turning up unannounced at your front door on Saturday expecting gourmet dinner. Because of the Covid-19 lockdown we ask you to email you order to [email protected] or call 07544428165. The more tech savvy amongst you can FaceTime [email protected] and virtual shop with your iPhone or Mac camera. We’re not T€$co or MickyD’s – we make food for foodies so we plan our dinners just like you.

Our shop at NN6 6LQ is just 5 minutes off the M1/M6 junction at Crick, the A5 at Lilbourne and 10 mins from A14 via Elkington. Because of Covid-19 we the shop is closed to entry except by arrangement because the floorspace is limited and we are concentrating on local delivery. If you are a doctor, nurse, NHS or key worker you will be prioritised and local delivery is free.
