Plumstead Road

The Shop

John founded the shop on Plumstead Road that still exists to this day. His son, James (Jimmy) Archer, came into the trade as soon as he was allowed to leave  school and in the early 80s bought the business from his father.

Since then the business developed and the shop doubled in size to cope with the extra demand, and a delicatessen and baguette takeaway were added.

The Shop

Now in its third generation, James (Jamie) Archer is taking the business forward but also maintaining traditional techniques and methods used by his father (Jimmy) and grandfathers (John Archer & Oliver Craske.)
