Always friendly, long hours, amazing what you can find. A must for papers, milk and strawberries. No need to walk up the hill.

Chris and Wendy at Muir Lea were the same as ever when we visited RHB again this year. Good range of products, helpful and friendly as always, nothing too much trouble for them, if they can help, they will, they'll stay open late if they need to, to accommodate everybody still shopping. Hope to see them again next year, all... More

A nice handy little shop, we called in for some supplies on the way to the beach. I was particularly amused by the sign in the window advising that blackberries and pears were being kept inside due to a naughty blackbird! Friendly staff and a good selection of goods.

For a small local shop, Muir Lea Stores has a great selection of essential items,interspersed with tourist gifts and a good selection of local beers. I was pleasantly surprised at the range of fresh fruit and veg available for such a small store. This really would be a godsend for anyone in a self-catering cottage. The man behind the counter...
