The Queen’s grocers – a review of Harrods food hall in pictures

Hi Frugalistas!

A destination in its own right, Harrods food hall puts any local supermarket to shame……..

Chandelier in Harrods – definitely not standard decoration in your local supermarket

Vegetables displayed like a work of art – Harrods

In case you thought that first chandelier was a fluke!

And the diet officially ended here………

And was officially trashed here……..

Home brand products taken to a whole new level

Neptune’s grotto full of every seafood imaginable

 

 

 

I love the beautiful art nouveau tiles throughout

Deck the halls 1

Nothing in it is cheap, but buy yourself a little cake or chocolate, browse and enjoy a fun and very British destination!

    My parents rented a flat within walking distance of Harrod’s for over 10 years (I was in my 20’s at the time). We would visit the displays of various edibles, pick out one sweet and then walk around the corner to Hart’s, The Grocer and purchase more affordable items for eating.
    I fondly remember Harrod’s at the holidays — the decorations were so lovely.
    Thank you for a walk down memory lane.

      Interestingly the food hall was the only part of the shop in Christmas mode when I visited mid-October.

      Glad my happy snaps brought back such happy memories!

    Wow, never thought I would enjoy a photo montage of a supermarket, I was wrong, that was very interesting. Thanks GG

      I’m also planning a little one of Fortnum & Mason at some point – the Queen and Prince of Wales both ‘shop’ there.

      Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for dropping by!
