welcome to slate

Slate is a specialist cheese retailer and delicatessen in the bustling Suffolk seaside towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold.

Formerly known as Lawson’s Delicatessen in Aldeburgh, we have changed our name to Slate and opened a new shop in Southwold.

Our new name encapsulates our passion for cheese and delicious food and drink provisions. Quality cheese is at the heart of what we offer, alongside our prepared meals and salads, bread, charcuterie, olives, chutneys and preserves.


TRY OUR SHOP & COLLECT SERVICE

Use our online shop to order our delicious prepared meals, ready to collect from either Slate shop.  

Prepared by our own chefs and frozen so they remain fresh for whenever you need them, our range includes classic dishes such as beef lasagne, steak and mushroom pie and fish pie.  All available as portions for one, two or four people.  An easy supper on a cold winter's evening.


BANK HOLIDAY MONDAY OPENING HOURS

This bank holiday is going to be a sunny one  - why not visit the seaside?
Both Slate shops will be open on bank holiday Monday so call in for some cheese and picnic treats.  

Slate Aldeburgh: 9am to 4pm
