Checketts is a name and business that has been associated with Worcestershire since 1902 when the Great Grandfather of current owners, Father and Son team, Phil and David Checketts, opened his Butchers Shop in Wyre Piddle.

In 1925 Thomas Henry Checketts moved the business to the current premises in Ombersley, where it continues to grow and diversify, opening a Fresh Fishmongers in 2007 and expanding into the adjacent Delicatessen premises in 2011, creating an inviting Coffee Shop and Gift Area in addition to the deli counters packed with homemade, award winning goods.

David Checketts, Managing Director, is heading the new venture for this family run business; “It’s a great opportunity to work with St Peters in bringing our fabulous homemade produce to the South of Worcestershire.

We will have a full fresh meat counter alongside our award winning cooked meats, homemade pies, pastries, ready meals and a selection of fresh, smoked and frozen fish to compliment the fantastic products available in Blake’s Deli.

All of the meat in the Potting Shed Restaurant, at St Peters Garden Centre, is also supplied by us so you’ll find the same Checketts quality meats throughout.”St Peters Garden Centre was founded by Tony Blake in 1985.

Starting life as a small garden centre it has now thrived to be one of the most significant Garden Centres in the county & indeed the country.

St Peters continues to grow a significant volume of its own plants, and prides its self on maintaining a core gardening offer.  Food is also huge part of their offering with a significant restaurant business, and this new venture cements their strong promotion of good local food and drink.

William Blake, Director at St Peters Garden Centre: “It has always been a dream to open a Food Hall at the premises and I was over the moon when such a prestigious and well respected family business, Checketts, agreed to go into partnership on the project.

We will be stocking a good range of the finest cheeses, fruit and vegetables, breads, artisan chocolates & tapas to compliment the products sold by Checketts and provide a great food offering to our customers.”
