A little village with a lot going for it!

Today Longframlington is going through a very interesting time in its history. Where other villages seem to be 'dying' with shop closures etc.. Longframlington seems to be going through a bit of a boom at the moment. Within the last few years our corner shop, David Carr's general dealers, has won Best Rural Retailer Award 2006. this meant a visit to a Buckingham Palace garden party for David. It's not confirmed but we wouldn't be suprised if David actually did the catering that day!

David is almost a legend in the village (so he says) and his shop sells a great range of everyday and 'deli' goods. Cheeses, lovely soft buns, (you might call them baps) and a good range of beers and wines. Try the Northumbrian Nettle cheese, not as prickly as it sounds! If you like running have a word with David - you would be welcome to join in with the Fram runners who meet twice a week.

Across the road, a fairly recent addition to the village is the Paper Shop which serves, well...... papers (and other paper shop type stuff of course.)

And opposite is The Village Inn. A good selection of beers and very good food is served here. You may want to visit on a Monday where there is a pub quiz kicking off at 9.00pm or the weekend where there is often live entertainment.

Just a few yards up the road we find R.Green & Son family butchers. Excellent meats, everything you would need already prepared for a barbeque and probably the best banter around. The staff are very friendly and will be only too pleased to have a chat.

Next door is The Granby Inn where again good food and beers are served (Steak Pie's nice) in a relaxed atmosphere - both bar meals and a bookable restaurant are available.

It's a great place to live - we hope you enjoy it!
