It’s simply deli.sh

A NEW deli is hoping to expand Barrow’s lunchtime options.

NEW VENTURE: Deli.sh, owned by Sam Halpin and Caragh McCullough, has opened in Crellin Street, Barrow. They are pictured at the official opening on Tuesday October 16 with the mayor, Councillor Wendy Maddox, and mayoress Dorothy Ashburner HARRY ATKINSON REF: 50039842B001

Deli.sh officially opened its doors to the public two weeks ago, offering a variety of home-made dishes.

And owners Sam Halpin, 32, and Caragh McCullough, 25, are hoping that the Crellin Street deli will fill a niche in the market.

Mr Halpin, a Michelin-trained chef, said: “For the past five years Caragh and I have been working in catering at ski resorts around Europe.

“But after getting sick of travelling we decided to move back home to Barrow, settle down and open our own business. We felt there was a lack of good quality deli food in the town centre, so we are hoping to fill the gap by offering really nice Illy coffee and home-made cakes, pies, soups and chutneys.”

The couple have designed a menu which offers something a little bit different to the usual lunchtime choices.

Mr Halpin said: “We have chosen to offer something a bit different.

“As well as sandwiches, baked potatoes and salads we have also added tascas to our menu and a range of home-made pork pies.

“They are both proving to be very popular – yesterday we sold 90 pies.”

All of the food is prepared daily, using local ingredients.

Mr Halpin said: “We use a lot of local produce – our olives are marinated in Cumbria, and we source our meat from a butcher in Dalton Road.

“Caragh is hoping to start baking her own bread too.”

Deli.sh is already proving to be popular with the locals.

Mr Halpin said: “We weren’t expecting business to take off so quickly, we have been really busy.

“There is a lot of work for just two people so we are thinking of taking on a couple of staff.”
