Welcome to Good Elf Fine Foods

A traditional family business with an old-fashioned style and values. Good Elf was set up by chefs Nick and Matt Arlidge in 1996.

Starting out as a typical delicatessen specialising in cheeses and meats. Good Elf has evolved over the decades and now produces a hugely popular range of ready meals and savouries, snacks and lunchtime goods, as well as offering its original deli lines.

We’re probably the only deli left in the country that doesn’t do coffees and hot food, but that’s how we like it!

Catering Menu

We love local!

We source all our meat from F. Conisbee in East Horsley who say:
"All our meat comes either from our own farm or other local farms where we can endorse the high standards of farming husbandry that we ourselves abide by.  Our meat is brought in 'on the hoof' allowing us to develop the meat’s natural flavour and tenderness as well as offering great cuts of meat; perfect for any occasion."
