Our story

Linden Stores is owned and run by partners Chris Boustead and Laura Christie (with occasional assistance from their son Ollie).

In the kitchen, Chris gets creative with the best produce The British Isles has to offer, creating menus that are comforting and meant to share. He moves with the seasons, with a focus on sustainability and a dash of foraged ingredients from around Cheshire.

To drink, Laura pours wines from sustainable, small-scale winemakers around the world. They're unusual, highly gluggable, and available to take home from our shop. 

Combined, they have have more than 25 years of experience in hospitality in London and the North. Now, they're pouring all of their love and experience into this intimate venue in the heart of Knutsford.

Linden Stores is named after the road Chris grew up on in Scarborough, and is an ode to delicious food and wine.
