Harry Tuffins Transport Cafe (Truck Stop) & Supermarket is located in the village of Churchstoke on the A489, but about 300 yds from the A490. Churchstoke is located between Ludlow on the A49 and Newtown on the A483.
Travelling from Ludlow it is located on the near side, the HGV entrance is the first entrance and about 300yds after passing the 30MPH limit sign.
I would like to pay a tribute to Harry Tuffin for providing a service for people over a very wide area, the atmosphere is rural and in keeping with the desires of ordinary folk, in that I mean it is unpretentious. Long may Harry Tuffins continue.
Fuel can be purchased at the pumps often at a good discount of 6p per litre cheaper if you spend £50 plus in the supermarket. His fuel prices on the pump alone, without the discount, are always amongst the lowest in Britain.
A number of improvements and additions are in the process, A garden centre, (NOW OPEN) an extension to the supermarket sales area, new sections in the supermarket, improved range of all fresh foods. There are plans I understand to increase the Cafe area and refit it at the same time.
Harry Tuffins Transport Cafe is a very popular stop for locals and others from miles around, as is his supermarket also on site.
Harry’s Transport cafe opens 7 days and Sunday is his busy day with locals for Sunday dinner, various roasts are available. The supermarket is also open. A Launderette is open every day, take yer own powder or buy in the supermarket
Harry Tuffins is located in Wales by a few hundred yards, but this is the Marches of Wales and Shropshire. Marches means border land, very nice it is to.
It operates normal business hours for the cafe, dinners are available until near 3pm daily
Opening times for the cafe are as follows...
7 days a week 8.30am until 4.30pm cooked meals
Tea or coffee and other small available items until near 5pm, this I am advised as a result of a telephone call to them.
Harry Tuffin himself passed away a number of years ago, god bless him, the stores Managing Director is Paul Delves, however the store is still part of the Harry Tuffin Family. I understand that Roy & Ruby Delves are Joint Chair-Persons to the company.
My congratulations to them all for continuing as Harry did, keep it up!
Fuel is available for HGV. Overnight parking would be easy here, but I should ask, he has lots of space.
If any reader can supply me with more information I would appreciate an E Mail.
Watch batteries and repairs are also available from another trader inside the Tuffins building, also hairdresser, post office, lottery tickets.
For Lorry Parking it is best to phone ahead and ask
