About us...
Welcome to our friendly delicatessen in the heart of historic Hastings Old Town.
We specialise in artisan cheeses, charcuterie, fine wines and Monmouth coffee.  Our relaxed Tiny Tea Room room is open 7 days a week and is a great place to unwind, whether it be with one of our fantastic coffees prepared by Monmouth Coffee Co. trained Baristas, a light lunch, or a cheese and charcuterie platter with a glass of wine or craft ale. 
We host several tasting events throughout the year, showcasing some of the best british cheeses, charcuterie, wines and ports.
We also offer bespoke Party Platters, a Cheese Celebration Tower Service and can prepare some amazing gift hampers to suit your budget.
 If you have any questions about our services, please don't hesitate to give us a call or send us an email.  Ellie & Richard and all the team at Penbuckles  look forward to welcoming you soon!


Our range is predominantly British, with many Local cheeses, from cows, goat and sheeps milk.
We are also pleased to offer continental favorites such as Brie de Meaux, Feta, Halloumi,  Mozzarella, Tallegio, Parmesan, Pecorino, Manchego
and Comte to name a few.
We place great store by sourcing the best we can find and often have seasonal specials (our sussex truffled brie is a fantastic example of this).

Alongside our cheeses we have not only traditional pickle accompaniments and biscuits but local preserves and chutneys.

We can source almost any cheese to order and frequently supply cheese cake towers for weddings and celebratory events.
See our services section for more details on this.


We have been diligently researching wines for the last 40 years and have developed our range based on taste and value for money.
We now offer around 100 wines and have probably one of the largest selections of organic and vegan / vegetarian friendly wines in the area.


Our coffee beans come from MONMOUTH COFFEE, one of the most respected ethical importers and roasters in Britain.

To ensure consistent high quality, our Baristas have had extensive in house training and in London at Monmouth's state of the art training facililty.
Coffee not only has its own seasonal changes but also is affected by humidity and other local climatic conditions. So we check and adjust the grind throughout the day to maintain consistency of taste.

Our Espresso is Monmouth's own espresso blend.

In addition to this we have  5 different single estate beans; which we offer as cafetiere drinks to have in.

All of our beans are available for purchase in store. Simply choose your bean, grind and let us do the rest.
