Sorry! We're Closed

We're COVID-secure

In these very strange times, we know how important it is to all of our customers to keep what we do clean, hygeinic and above all safe.

We have stringent safety standards anyway, however, we have made our policies even more focussed.

We have added specific COVID-19 measures to our daily cleaning routine and enforce clear queueing and social distancing measures at Citrus.

In order to keep you as safe as possible, we have adopted a number of new proactices for your safety and ours.


Only two waiting customers and one customer being served are allowed into the shop with face coverings. Anyone without a face covering can order and pay from the door.

  • Ross & Jake come from the same household and are the only people allowed inside the shop
  • We are keeping our contact outside of work to stock replenishment only and to protect you we are not engaging socially in any form in accordance with HM Government guidelines
  • We only use brand new, biodegradable or compostable packaging
  • We are preferring cash as a payment method
  • If someone cannot pay with contactless payment, the card terminal is disinfected after every physical contact
  • Gloves are worn for all food preparation and changed every order
  • Tongs are used to handle all cakes
  • Our usual, stringent surface sanitisation practices and checks are being strictly adhered to
  • Our daily checklists have been updated to incorporate extra COVID security checks
  • We try to avoid touching the mouth pieces on our cup lids
  • Hands are washed and sanitised regularly throughout the day
  • Only customers wearing face coverings are allowed beyond the threshold
  • Appropriate signage and markings are in place outside Citrus
  • Signage is in place to instruct everyone how to order
  • Online ordering is in place to allow ultra-low contact collection

Our History

Ross began his life in coffee back in 1998, working for Starbucks back when they cared about what they did and the staff they employed which fostered Ross's love for the drink.

After an extended period of time in various customer service roles and IT vocations, he found himself working for Costa where he soon became supervisor of the 13th busiest UK store at the time where he began to long for his own store.

Meanwhile, Jake had worked his way from a Personal Trainer up to senior management where he was running a chain of gyms in the Northwest. Due to cut-backs and poor investment from the Board, staff futures were insecure and Jake began looking for future options of his own.

During the return of a laptop to one of Ross's IT customers, Jake happened to notice the local deli was for sale. After a death in the family, it got the two to thinking. Scouting the county for suitable opportunities, the pair settled upon The Greedy Pig in Kelsall, near Chester, Cheshire.

After 18 months and a total transformation, The Greedy Pig was renamed to Citrus to better reflect the freshness they offer and to truly make the shop their own.

Their mission; to provide locals and visitors alike with quality deli-style take-away food, custom-roasted coffee and a wide range of other snacks and drinks.

Since taking on the business, customer numbers have trebled, Citrus sells its own exclusive, blend of coffee, they have received another Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor and has become a hub in the heart of the village welcoming their customers as they do their friends.

    Order Online & Beat The Queues

    It's as Simple as 1-2-3

    We've worked closely with our software developers to create a way of ordering not just from us but from a range of shops and companies all over the country. You can use your phone, computer or tablet to order.

    Once you're ready, simply click the button below to be taken to our online ordering system.

    Add the items to your basket by expanding the categories and scrolling through the products.

    Once you click on an item, your customisation options come next. Choose any additional options before clicking 'add to basket'.

    Checkout, selecting 'collection' followed by your collection time and you'll then have the option to use your credit card, ApplePay or Android Pay.

    Start Ordering

    Keep your emails open - we send order updates via email.

    NB: this system is new and we are aware working on these known issues:
    Only credit cards can be used as payment if you order via Goodies. To avoid this, order via the 'start your order' button on our website.
    Our Goodies loyalty app has a glitch when parsing data which can cause a white page and you cannot log into app. Developers are investigating.
