Johns Of Instow


This famous local store is stocked with a fabulous deli counter serving a lovely range of pates, cold meats and cheeses.  They carry a good selection of wines and beers and fresh bread is baked every day.

This is the sister shop to the John’s of Appledore and we can say there is no better place in Instow to come and stock up on “treat yourself” supplies to enjoy while you are walking, cycling, relaxing on the beach or just something delicious for tea.
