There has been a Shop in the heart of Itteringham Village since 1637.
Today we successfully trade as a Community run business.
We do so thanks to the help of local volunteers and supporters with managerial guidance from the Itteringham Community Association
(formed in 1994).
Our Philosophy is quite simple :
Serving the Community with a wide selection of tasty locally produced food,
thereby helping local rural businesses and providing local employment.
The Community Shop is the Social hub of the Community.
URGENT NEWS: We are fighting an eviction from the Village Shop by October 8th.
Our Landlords are providing a chance for the Community to raise funds to
buy both their House and the attached Community Shop to prevent this.
Please donate to our Campaign fund in order to help keep a Community Shop in the Village.
Major initiative to raise funds to purchase the Community Shop will be announced very soon.
There has been a shop continuously trading in Itteringham Village since 1637

A Community run Shop
Since the formation in 1994 of the Itteringham Community Association the Village Shop has been Community run. Now a team of volunteers and employees drawn from the Village and surrounding communities work to ensure it will survive and trade on into the future.
The Shop circa 1908

Brian and Dorothy ran the Village Shop from 1946 up until 1994 when Brian became terminally ill. In the latter stages of his illness the Villagers rallied to support Brian and offered to continue the Shop as a Community run venture.

“I wish all villages had a shop/cafe like this!”
Returned from a delightful stay in this lovely village. What a brilliant village shop/post office/cafe . Not only do they serve the most scrummy food but this fantastic little shop is stocked with brilliant goods and produce. We were able to order our papers for our stay, buy good wholesome homemade food and more! WELL done to those running this very special community shop.
“A freindly place to stop, halfway round a walk”
Doing walk around Blickling Hall estate in Norfolk and came across this Oasis in Itteringham village called the Village Shop, Mike and Jenny do a smashing cuppa , real teapot and crockery, light snacks and cakes etc. Shop sells just about everything , local produce and at a good price. Nice to see these people do well, they are passionate about what they do.Call in you won't be disapointed.
Thank Tom H
This shop is a life saver and well done to the staff who run this it is well stocked and well used by the locals.
“What a treasure !”
Found this charming shop / cafe on a walk around the area. Staff were friendly and busy. Lots of great goodies in shop. Prices good. Will be back again soon. Clean and quaint. Amazing find.
Everything you could hope for from a village shop! Long may it thrive! A splendid selection of local delicacies as well as all the 'staples'
“Best village shop and café I know”
Charming volunteer staff, great tea and a comprehensive selection of interesting groceries for a small shop, including local honey, local vegetables and locally milled flour.
"What a Gem ! "
Out on a walk from the nearby Mannington Hall, found this fantastic gem of a shop/café. Really nice welcome from the staff behind the counter - wonderful local produce fantastic sandwich filling within locally produced bread - a full range of options available.
Grabbed a table outside (in the sun) and had a great lunch in a quintessentially English village setting. What a gem!
We chose to cycle from Cromer to Itteringham yesterday because we remembered stopping at this delightful cafe and shop two years ago. It was just as we recalled it: charming and welcoming. Two generous slices of delicious home made cake and two excellent coffees later we were ready for the challenge of the cycle home. Obviously a hub for the village. It is sad that more villages do not have something similar
“Packed with goodies.”
A tiny shop bursting with goodies. You name it, they seem to have it, including cake with teas and coffees inside or out and gorgeous artisan bread and home made pork pies. Worth visiting just to marvel at the selection of groceries.
