The Little Tipple is open from 16:00–20:00 Monday to Friday, and 10:00-13:00 and 15:30–20:00 on Saturdays but restrictions will apply. Please wear a face covering and please shop alone.

Please note that the pic’n’mix sweet counter is closed temporarily but we hope to re-open it soon. £1 bags of mixed sweets are available.

We are still operating the popular Tipple Home Delivery Service to those customers in the BS41 9 postcode area who wish to stay safe at home. To place your order (minimum spend £25) please either telephone 01275 392508 between 4.00pm – 8.00pm or email norman @ (take out spaces) with ‘TIPPLE HOME DELIVERY’ in the subject header. Please include your name, address, phone number and order. We will call you back to confirm availability and take your payment card details.


If the Little Tipple’s Gaudi-esque sign above the entrance doesn’t give you a clue about the individuality of this family-run village shop in Long Ashton, near Bristol, then the weird and wonderfully organic timber counter and fixtures that greet you once inside certainly will.

It’s like a grotto, with every nook and cranny filled with interesting wines from small family vineyards from around the world and full-bodied craft beers from local breweries. And that’s before you realise that, squeezed between more familiar bottles, there are also some rather remarkable and tempting single malt whiskies, vintage ports, liqueurs, sherries and ciders each individually selected by its owners.
