With so many Czechs living in the UK (according to Wikipedia, the 2011 UK Census recorded 34,615 Czech-born residents in England, 1,256 in Wales, 2,245 in Scotland and 662 in Northern Ireland!), it is not surprising that there are quite a few shops that sell Czech food in the UK. There could well be a Czech shop quite near you and you might not even know about it. And that’s why I’ve decided to put together my little list of Czech food shops in the UK, creating a useful resource for Czech people living here.
It’s not an exhaustive list and I’m sure there are lots more Czech food shops out there, so if you know another one, do let me know (you can leave a comment below) and I will add it to the list.
Czech Food Shops in the UK – Online Shops
Halusky – the first and probably best know Czech online food shop in the UK. Halusky is also a brick and mortar shop in London (see map below).
Crusty Bread Artisan Bakery – an online shop with Czech and Slovak food. Crusty Bread Artisan Bakery is primarily a bakery in Bournemouth but they also have an online store where you can buy all those Czech groceries that you miss.
Dukla – an online Czech food shop that’s been going for three years now. They also have a proper shop in London (see map below).
Bibi’s -an online store selling Czech and Slovak food. They are based in Luton where you can visit their shop in person (see map below).
Včielka Maja – yet another online shop that sells Czech and Slovak groceries. Their brick and mortar shop is located in Warrington (see map below).

The pink icons represent shops that sell primarily Czech and Slovak food (mostly owned by Czechs or Slovaks living in the UK). The blue icons represent shops that sell primarily other food (Polish mainly) but stock some Czech and Slovak groceries, too.
