About Us

Clarence & Cripps opened in the beautiful lakeside village of Hudson in Quebec in 2006.

Originally opened by Maxine Clarence from Newcastle upon Tyne in England, it was taken over in 2014 by Nicky Fisher, another Brit originally from Trowbridge in Wiltshire....not far from the historic city of Bath. Nicky moved to Canada in 2007 and married Derek, a Canadian, in 2012 - a Canadian with an English heritage too...Derek's father was born in London, UK.

Nicky is continuing to provide the excellent service and warm welcome which Clarence & Cripps has become known for, as well as continuing the commitment to bring high quality British goods to your doorstep.

Clarence & Cripps stocks all sorts of foodstuffs and gifts that are continually updated. Find CadburysKeep Calm and Carry On gifts, McVitie’sBatchelorsYorkshire TeaRobertson’sTate & Lyle and Royal Worcester Wrendale fine bone china & linens...the list of familiar names goes on and on. 

We also have our own line of frozen items. Melton Mowbray Pork Pies, Steak or Steak & Kidney Pies, Cornish Pasies, Scotch Pies, Kippers, Smoked Haddock, British Breakfast Bangers, Lincolnshire or Cumberland sausages, and delicious Scones in packs of 4.

In March 2018 we moved to a larger premises and added a cafe/tea room to our shop. Serving British favourites such as our Full English Breakfast all day, Scones and Cream, Bangers & Mash, Beans on Toast we strive to bring an authentic taste of Britain to our customers. 

Clarence & Cripps' customers are made up of ex-pats looking for familiar flavours from their days in the UK, locals who want to try out some delicious food, passing visitors, and people who travel from afar to have a chat and stock up on their favorites.
