Wells will continue to offer its high levels of hospitality, driven by the amazing team. The food we serve will be based on a British farmhouse kitchen, with inspiration from our travels, driven by local artisan suppliers with an emphasis of sourcing quality ingredients.
Wells Stores was originally the local village shop in Streatley, run by the Wells sisters, hence the name! In 1953, the shop was taken over by Major Patrick Rance.
The monocled Major is famous in the cheese world and largely credited with saving the artisan cheese culture in Britain with his passion and charisma.
In 1990, the business moved to Abingdon, under the management of Gill Draycott. In 1999, she moved the business to Peach Croft Farm and since then the business continues to grow.
