Warm friendly staff great deals to be had

Asda Downpatrick Superstore

Ballydugan Retail Park, Ballydugan Rd, Downpatrick BT30 6AJ, UK – 028 4461 9606

Very nice staff. Product availability has definitely declined recently, at first I thought it was transport problems during the winter weather, but it doesn't seem to have improved at all. For example, no Robinsons 'no added sugar' juice, poor availability of crisp varieties. I would like to see it come back up to its usual standard.

Staff very pleasant and helpful 2 areas could really do with improvement: Flowers Range is poor. Too many ugly bouquets in a garish mix of colours Not well presented or looked after - a lot of dried out and damaged flowers Bread in bakery dept Too much is a dry low quality mix falling way below the standard of Tesco, Lidl, M&S - have stopped buying it No cranberries this Christmas - why?

Oakley Fayre Cafe and Deli

52 Market St, Downpatrick BT30 6LY, UK – 028 4461 2500

Oakley Fayre continues to be a staple of Downpatrick’s market street. Great range of baked goods including Wharton bread etc., and very good option for lunch if you are in Downpatrick. Service is excellent, and food is beet tasty. Also great for kids as they have several kids menu options, crayons to keep them happy, plus free lollipops!

The restaurant was very busy today, Wednesday but I decided to take a chance, never having been there before. I had the smoked haddock chowder with sourdough bread. Although I had to wait a while it was delicious. I would definitely go again, and have the same thing. Highly recommended, restaurant and chowder!

BigBarn has a totally brilliant map for County Down showing all the local food producers. So if you want to know where your food comes from look no further!
