Orford General Store revised opening hours

Posted on January 24, 2021

We are delighted to announce that, with the arrival of the lighter evenings, we will be extending our opening hours once again, on a Tuesday and Wednesday back to 5.00pm. We apologise for any inconvenience this has caused over the last few months, but it was, sadly, a financial necessity, due to limited custom during these hours, in the dark winter months.

Full opening hours for the shop and Post Office follow, and remember you can always keep up to date, by logging onto our website- www.orfordgeneralstore.co.uk

For all you green-fingered gardening enthusiasts, our selection of perennial and bedding plants, will now begin to increase, and as more plants become garden-ready, the nursery will be sending them onto us. Current stocks include foxgloves, hollyhocks, anemone, snake’s-head fritillary, saxifrage, anemones, primroses and sweet peas.

Regardless sails again

Posted on December 2, 2020


As of Saturday 5th December ‘Regardless’ will be back up and running.
Due to Covid restrictions there will be a few changes.
Anglers will be required to wear a face mask for the duration of the crossing as well as gloves when handling other anglers gear. Drop off to The Crouch will remain as £10pp but due to reduced numbers allowed on board and the time it takes to reach The Narrows this has increased to £15pp.
Please call 07900 230579 to make a booking.
