Mrs Bumbles of Burford, Purveyors of Fine Food and Drink


Mrs Bumbles provides tasty, quality deli produce and ready to eat foods to take away, inspired by favourite dishes and with a local twist. Much of our ready to eat food is made in-house daily, from fresh salads, sausage rolls  to baguettes and quiches.

We offer our customers cakes and pastries and drinks such as freshly ground coffees and teas to take away. Many of our products are sourced from local bakeries, farmers and producers within the Cotswolds.


We produce freshly made to order baguettes, using local ingredients where possible. We pride ourselves on producing all of our fillings in house to ensure the highest quality.

Our brown, seeded and white baguettes are cooked in house throughout the day. To accompany your lunch we also have a selection of locally made cakes, bakery fresh sausage rolls and pasties, flapjacks, award winning crisps and cold drinks.

Sicilian Fine Foods

Sicily is rightly famed for its food and drink, and the island's cuisine reflects the different cultural influences that have shaped Sicily over the centuries. Mrs Bumbles buys direct from the Island’s suppliers.

Sicily's home-grown products make for a rich and varied spread, ranging from pasta, pesto, bread sticks, salami, olive oil, bruchetta, passata – all staples of the diet and examples of Sicily's mixed food heritage.

Cheese Counter

We are committed to providing our customers with a delicious selection of British produce, to supplying particular requests week by week and so keeping our customers satisfied by fresh, fine cheeses.

Our delicatessen counter offers over 30 types of cheeses. Choose from the usual suspects, such as Colston Basset, Oxford Blue, Delice de Bourgogne and Burford Cheese or why not try something a little different?

We offer cow, goat and sheep cheeses ranging from the mild and sweet to the mature and strong. We also stock incredible value Cheddars, and hand-made artisan cheeses, and are always delighted to help you sample and choose the perfect cheese selection for your event.

You’ll also find a tempting array of accompaniments including fruit purees and artisan biscuits, along with fine preserves and pickles to perfectly complement your cheese.

Cotswold Beers

Welcome to the wonderful world of Cotswold beers and lagers. The majority of the beers we stock are locally brewed at one of the many local microbreweries.

Our passion is for stocking quality ales, brewed the traditional way, using only the finest natural ingredients.

Our seasonal ales also prove very popular giving everyone a wide range of ale styles and flavours to choose from.

If you are planning an event, such as a wedding or a party, we specialise in supplying ale for such occasions so please contact us to discuss.


We value our local food suppliers for their high quality produce and first-class service. These are complemented by wines from the Oxford Wine Company.

They offer a great choice, all of which are carefully chosen for their quality and these are priced competitively. These wines are exclusive to Oxford Wine in this region and won't be found in supermarkets or on the high street.

Cacklebean Eggs

We sell the exquisite eggs laid by the hens at Cacklebean Farm which nestles at the bottom of a hill just outside Stow-on-the-Wold. Owners Paddy and Steph Bourns rare breed flocks live in traditional chicken houses on 12 acres of land, with perches. They are entirely free range.

Owner Sally Colter says: “We have bought Patrick and Stephs eggs since we took over here in April 2014. Cacklebean Eggs are totally unique. Customers now ask for them by name because they are rich and full of flavour with an extremely dark yolk. There is nothing like them.”

Scotch eggs

With over 20 tantalising Scotch Egg recipes including vegetarian options we are sure that you will never have tasted a scotch egg as good as those from The Handmade Scotch Egg Company in Herefordshire.

Sally has allowed her imagination to run wild in stocking a fantastic range of Scotch Eggs – her aim is to reinstate the humble scotch egg as Britain’s favourite snack. This is continuing at a rate of knots.....Hurrah!!

Oils and vinegars

Our increasingly successful and expanding range of 'on tap' infused oils and Balsamic vinegars from Rowcliffe includes lemon, basil, Tuscan herb, Mediterranean herb, garlic and chilli oils and fantastic fig, raspberry and Mussini vinegars.

All are dispensed from 5 litre amphorae (lovely word!) into a great variety of bottle shapes. And the latest and most exciting development is a range of cream balsams, with date and fig, blood orange and cranberry options.

In fact, a veritable cornucopia of cooking essentials!

For more information about our extensive assortment of oils, vinegars and bottles, please visit and speak to Sally.

House of Sarunds Chocolates

The House of Sarunds supply Mrs Bumbles with fresh, high quality Belgian chocolates. All our loose chocolates are produced by expert English and Belgian manufacturers with many years training. Producing fine quality filled chocolates is not for the 'hobby' chocolatier.

Mrs Bumbles has a quick turnover of stock, keeping everything at their very best and as fresh as possible.
