Best Independent Retailer
Winner – Jolly Nice, Frampton Mansell
Transformed from a petrol station into a fantastic farm shop, Jolly Nice near Stroud serves everything from bacon rolls to homemade soups, as well as their own ice cream and delicious trademark burger.

Jolly Nice impressed judges with the local produce used to make the items that are served in a fabulous setting. Staff were able to recommend what to purchase and the food was described as both excellent and delicious.
Highly Commended – Market Garden, Cirencester
Highly Commended – The Sandwich Box, Cheltenham
