An award-winning family business comprising a delicatessen, café and grocers in the two lovely villages of Instow and Appledore, known for the very best local and homemade produce.
Johns of Instow has been trading for more than 90 years, having been opened as a traditional grocery in 1926 by current owner Anthony’s great-grandmother, Queenie. Today it is a welcoming, vibrant delicatessen and café that still supplies the best local and homemade produce to the seaside village and its visitors from far and wide, as well as catering for events and special occasions. Johns of Appledore opened in 2008, providing the village on the opposite river bank, famed for its heritage fishing and arts, with the same quality and warm, welcoming atmosphere that makes both Johns deli, café and catering such unique destinations in North Devon.
