No2 Pound Street – More than just Wine & Cheese

No2 Pound Street, located in Wendover, is in the very the heart of the Chilterns. This picturesque market town is a central point for the keen walker boasting the ancient Ridgeway and the Wendover Arm of the Grand Union Canal. Views are plentiful as the Chilterns reach their highest peak here.

Gastronomy is centre stage at No2 Pound Street. Having run London’s foremost British restaurant, and with a wealth of food, hospitality and wine knowledge, the team’s goal is to showcase exceptional quality wines and British food.

No2 is an independent wine and British cheese shop with a delicatessen. The team carefully selects mainly organic and small batch wines rarely found in larger commercial shops. The wine list is international.

No2 is a nationally renowned purveyor of British Cheese. Having previously won the highly respected British Cheese Award as Best UK retailer, the shop strives to source cheese made with exceptional milks from farms that have the due care, skills and attention needed for the livestock and production of their artisanal cheese.

To keep up with market needs and trends, No2 now additionally sources a good range of very tasty vegan cheeses and wines. This is a growth market and one that is taken very seriously, especially when we are all faced with such severe climatic changes that are now making our food and drink choices so important.

This November, No2 will yet again host an artisan craft, food and beverage market. The emphasis is on quality producers who are ethically minded. There will be cheese makers, crafters, distillers, local ales, hot foods, live music, carol singers and a whole heap more. It’s a great opportunity to meet some local and passionate producers. There is no charge for entry, and it’s on the market square in Wendover just across from No2 Pound Street – the area will be festooned with lights, gently paying homage to the festive season with tasteful and soulful music to set the tone.

Since opening in 2010, No2 has always supported charity and this year the shop has been raising money for Chilterns MS Centre. It’s a local charity which boasts a most up-to-date centre that some patients travel hundreds of miles to attend. Every Thursday ongoing, No2 has a coffee morning from 10am-12noon. All hot beverage proceeds from the morning are given to the charity. Chilterns MS Centre will also be attending No2’s Christmas Artisan Market. This will offer the perfect chance to learn about MS and meet the volunteers who give up their time to promote and raise funds. Please do drop a few coins in their charity box, it will help make someone’s life more manageable.

We do hope you’ll be able to come to the lovely Artisan Crafts, Food and Drinks Market from 4-9:30pm on the 23rd of November on the market square in Wendover.
