Binny Amin, Budgens & Joel Goss, Froggies

Founded by John Budgen in 1872, Budgens is believed to be one of the oldest supermarket brands in Great Britain. Initially a small, local grocer, the company has expanded and over time the Budgens name appeared on a number of stores throughout the South of England, establishing a reputation for servicing the local communities around England’s high streets and suburban towns with quality products.

Bob met manager Binny Amin and Joel Goss from Froggies to discuss their collaboration.

Joel Goss from Froggies at The Timber Batts is so impressed by the quality of Budgen’s stock that he is sourcing some of his produce from their for his family-run restaurant, Froggies at The Timber Batts.  He is also planning to set up some cookery demonstrations from the store, so keep your eyes open for dates.  The Timber Batts Inn is located in a charming 15th century building in the beautiful Kent countryside in Bodsham Green.  The pub has a cosy, atmospheric bar, low beamed ceilings for a guaranteed hearteningly cosy dining experience.
