Welcome to Marlowe & House, an independent food store located in The Village Arcade in the centre of St Albans.

Marlowe & House was born out of a rather selfish desire to surround ourselves with fine ingredients, beautiful produce & proper food lovers. Our store is a tiny little haven for anyone growing tired of the fluorescent glow of the supermarket; somewhere you can talk about the ingredients on the shelves whilst trading favourite recipes. We believe that great food should be accessible, delivered to you the way we feel it should be done; with honesty and passion for our trade.


Our Products

At Marlowe & House we source the finest quality products and ingredients we can get our hands on. From our cured meats to our fresh veg, our dried pastas to our artisan cheese; we ensure that every item is a pleasure to eat and a joy to cook with.

On top of that, we go out of our way to know where everything is from and how it is made so we can pass that knowledge on to you.

Our humble store will continue to grow as we stumble upon suppliers we can work with. To go with our horde of meats, cheeses, vegetables and breads, we stock a vast array of larder goods so you can find everything you need to make a beautiful meal.

Online STORE

With our Online Store we're not only in St. Albans. We're in your town, too. In your house even. Creepy. 

Visit our online store and order some wonderful larder goods to compliment your cooking and we'll deliver it straight to your door. 

Our shipping is based on weight so the more you order the cheaper it gets. But, relax in the knowledge that you only pay what it costs us. No hidden charges. No funny business.
