Our Story

Set up over 8 years ago ‘The Deli in Boldmere’ has adapted and developed over time. Run by Pippa and later joined full time by her two sons Matthew and Simeon along with a dedicated team of great staff, The Deli has always aimed to serve the local Boldmere community. Limited space has long been an issue of the Deli but in September 2015 the Deli / Café was split up with our own Deli shop opening up just four doors down from the original shop. Following the move the existing ‘Deli in Boldmere’ was renamed ‘The Deli Social’ and the new Delicatessen with cheese, meats, and deli products took the former name ‘The Deli in Boldmere’. This allowed The Deli Social to service a greater number of covers. 

After 3 years the decision was made to shut ‘The Deli in Boldmere’ shop. To pour finite resources into the cafe/bar side of the business.

By this point The Deli Social (with the expansion of the outside catering and bar) was again ready for further development and work began extending the kitchen, refurbishing toilets and making a superb rear garden space with shipping container bar. Whilst not wholly complete we now boast a fantastic outdoor seating area to enjoy breakfast, lunch or a glass of wine. 

In December 2018, we were given a fantastic opportunity to open a second shop in Sutton Coldfield’s Gracechurch Centre and ‘The Deli Collective’ opened. All we can say about the Deli Collective is stay tuned via our social media as we look to give the Collective a truly unique offering in Sutton Coldfield and different to that of the Social in its own right. 

The loyalty of local people has been testament to the influence and enhancement a hard working business can make to a local area. We would like to thank all our customers for spending time with us as for over 8 years (almost!) all of you have been a true delight to serve !!
