About Us

As a 'Blackcountry girl' I grew up surrounded by home cooked food! Hot pork sandwiches with crunchy crackling, Faggots and Peas (or Faggots and Pays if you are local to me), lashings of Bread Pudding and Groaty Dick! I have always loved my food, my waistline not so much! but as i mature, gracefully or disgracefully I recognised the gap within the market locally for quality food to go and for events, so when we had the opportunity to develop the space within The Courtyard we could not miss out on the opportunity. We are situated in The Courtyard next to Little Bloomers Florist which was founded by my wife. We are an outdoor coffee kiosk. You can sit beneath the canopy and enjoy the surroundings whilst indulging in some cake. We offer this alongside our catering services. We cater for all private events such as christenings, birthdays and weddings as well as for corporate business. We are now also fully licenced and offer a selection of alcohol alongside our gift packages as well as cocktails in the summer months and baileys coffee in the colder months. Exclusive hire of The Courtyard is available on request. 

We have a huge vision for our businesses and will begin rolling out our plans as we continue to mature organically. If you are not near us we hope that one day we will be able to attend an event near you so you get to taste our goods!

How it all started?

Pickle Pantry, Mansfield Woodhouse began in October 2022 from humble beginnings'. I have always been business minded and previously had my own business. I moved to Mansfield and began working for Emma at Little Bloomers Florist. I started working for Emma as an apprentice florist. Covid struck and lockdown changed every part of both of our lives and business. Emma always spoke about how she would like to progress and together we discussed our personal goals and dreams, but Emma never thought we would have the opportunity to grow where the shop was situated. In 2022 our lives transformed. We became partners in life and later in business. We were given the opportunity to live on site and have the sole use of The Courtyard to trade from and grow the business within Mansfield Woodhouse. Life was fun, exciting and we knew this was just the beginning. As a partnership we decided to evolve and manage our own businesses whilst supporting each other.  We both felt this would ensure we have a driving force behind each of them and the time to focus and manage both efficiently, giving them both the time, they require whilst not compromising the service or quality to our customers. You will see us both supporting each other and often crossing over to work together. We both have a passion for food, flowers, sustainability, quality and supporting the growth of business locally. Therefore, having similar values allows us to use our skills where they are best fit over both businesses.

We wanted to offer a space within the community of Mansfield Woodhouse for locals to drop in for cake, coffee and flowers. A place that shows the work of local crafters, makers and suppliers. Supporting other local businesses. The Courtyard supports lots of local businesses already, and we plan to expand this further in the future. If you have a skill or business you feel compliments our Courtyard ethos please get in touch! we may collaborate should we feel it is a good fit!

Our future goal is to grow naturally. We want to ensure our customer experience is not compromised in upscaling the business further.

We would love for you to pop down and see us, share our business on social media or for those a little further afield purchase for friends and family in their area.  

Thank you for allowing us to love what we do everyday and make it a business. Emma and I are both so incredibly grateful!

Much Love and appreciation,
