Welcome to A.Gold
We're open Monday - Friday 10-4pm, weekends 11-5pm.
Welcome to A.Gold. We like to think of ourselves as a village shop in the City where you can buy a sandwich made to order, a cup of slow-brewed Monmouth filter coffee, a bag of traditional sweets and a homemade Scotch egg for later...read more about A.Gold
A.Gold Salad Bar
Fancy a break from bread? We've introduced a rather special salad bar to the shop. Like our sandwich fillings and hot food, everything is prepared from fresh ingredients each morning in our kitchen upstairs.
You can add the special filling of the day to your salad box or any of the meats, cheeses, smoked salmon, pies or a Scotch egg from the deli cabinet. Alternatively, go light and just have the salad.
Homemade Scotch eggs
Royal grocer Fortnum & Mason claim to have invented Scotch eggs in the 18th Century. From such majestic beginnings they have become a rather nasty supermarket snack food but proper homemade Scotch eggs are a revelation.
We make them fresh every weekday (unless we're making homemade sausage rolls - but that's another story). A free-range boiled egg is encased in seasoned sausage meat, rolled in breadcrumbs and deep-fried. They are satisfying, truly delicious and have a loyal (some might say fanatic) following - we sell dozens a day. Try it cut in half with a dollop of hot English mustard.
If you can't get to the shop, or we've sold out (an all too common occurance), what about making your own? Our recipe is on the Cooking page.
Williamson Fine Teas
Williamson Fine Teas are unique in the tea world for being the only major independent brand to grow and harvest their tea on their own farms in Kenya. They've been in the business for 140 years and their range of teas have been one of our best-sellers for almost as long (not quite).
All their teas are full of flavour and refreshing but we particularly like their Earl Grey with Blue Flowers. Small flecks of cornflower in the black tea give it a gentle, floral taste which compliments the citrus Bergamot. www.williamsontea.com
We have EC2 Postcode honey from Barnes & Webb and King's Cross honey from Urban Bees at the moment.
Follow us on Twitter for our latest honey updates.
Please note: we are currently out of Campbell's Tea - more is on order and should be here soon. In the meantime, if you need your tea now (and we know how you feel), you might try Leila's Shop & Cafe on Calvert Avenue in Shoreditch.
'Beautiful Flavour, Delicious Rich Cup' it says on the tin and we can only agree. A strong but smooth full-bodied blended tea made from loose East African leaves.
A firm favourite, customers buy tins and tins of it, sometimes so much we wonder how they can possibly drink it all.
