We opened Forest Deli in March 2018 purely through our love of cheese and a lack of availability locally. Coleford is a great town for independent food businesses so it made sense to open one that would complement the existing greengrocers, butchers and bakers.

Debbie loves to cook and is a trained chef and Simon’s hobbies have always revolved around food and drink.

Our love of travel, food and a desire to provide the local community with something a little bit different means that everything we do and select for the shop is done with thought and care.

We always prioritise local suppliers wherever possible, and from both sides of the border as Debbie is Welsh and Simon is from Gloucester, so you can be sure of a wide selection!

Please do pop in and say hi, we’re always very happy to talk anything food and drink :)
