We have been married for 34 years and opened Spires Sandwich Deli back in 1999. Mike trained to be a chef at New College Oxford and Angela has always been obsessed with cooking, whether it’s a dinner party for friends or professional cake decorating. We’ve been catering for events big and small for years and we love getting feedback from the people we have fed.
Spires has always been a family business. Angela’s mother, Jan, has been the backbone of the shop for years whilst Mike’s father, Clive, was previously delivering all around the city. Not to mention our daughters, nieces and nephews who all earned their pocket-money buttering bread on Saturdays.
We are constantly being inspired by food and flavours through the books we read and the places we travel. This inspiration comes to life in the new exciting dishes we put on the menu on a weekly basis - something which keeps our regulars coming back!
