We are open and it’s business as usual!

In this latest lockdown we are staying open and our friendly team here at the shop are ready to help! Since re-opening in July we have continued to add even more tasty treats and we’re  now busy stocking up for Christmas. If you haven’t already been in to the new look shop, why not pay us a visit to stock up on your fridge and cupboard essentials.

All our cheddars have best before dates of 2021 which means they’re the perfect present for Christmas!


Unfortunately we are not able to offer samples at this present time and please remember when visiting the shop –

  • Observe the one-metre rule and give fellow customers and Godminster staff lots of space when moving around the shop.
  • In light of the recent Government policy on making face coverings mandatory in shops, we ask that you adhere to this and wear a mask when you visit the shop, please. This is for your safety, the safety of our Godminster staff and your fellow shoppers.
  • Only 4 people allowed in the shop at any one time

If you are in the Somerset area – or just passing through on the A303 – then why not drop by and pay us a visit at our new Godminster Shop in Bruton, we’d love you all to come and have a browse, or simply a friendly chat about how we create our Godminster goodies! We’d also like to hear your stories about Godminster or your travels and what you’ve done in Bruton. Bruton is well and truly on the map thanks to some great local businesses and is a must-visit destination in the heart of Somerset. No trip to the town is complete without calling in at the Godminster shop, and a gorgeous truckle is a perfect souvenir of your trip.

Hopefully, we’ll see you all soon at the Godminster shop! A warm welcome awaits.
Thank you for your support and best wishes,
– The Godminster team
