MacFarlane's reviews

Award-winning Butt Rub Seasoning, as seen in The Telegraph last Friday, available here. Brilliant deli - the place to go for inspiration.

Overpriced - several of the same products 1/3 cheaper at Treohans a few doors down. Also refused to serve someone some pork half an hour before closing time because they'd already sterilised the meat slicer. Nice food though.

MacFarlane's is a fantastic shop with an amazing selection of cheeses, and the owners are lovely, helpful and knowledgeable people. They also have organic baby food and wonderful Belgian chocolates. Shopping there is delightful!

Went in for the first time last week and was bowled over by selection of organic produce and grocery. Anne and Angus also incredibly nice owners - as everyone else has said, very friendly!

Fantastic and friendly place - MacFarlane's is the kind of place which makes you feel like you're living in a neighbourhood rather than a city.

Probably one of the best cheese shops in London, not to mention their family extra virgin olive oil from Abbruzzi. I have never tasted anything so good in my life.

What an amazingly delightful shop! Stuffed full with food goodies, a mouthwatering range of cheeses, and always so friendly, (not just the owners and staff, also other customers). If you know it , you're in on this secret. If you don't, go and discover it - you're in for a treat!

MacFarlane's is a fantastic shop full of great cheeses, snacks, organic food, a selection of frozen dishes and an amazing number of other goods for a relatively small deli. Services is flawless and friendly and I've never been dissapointed with anything I've bought there. Every neighbourhood should have one.
