Unlike other cookshops we will always go the extra mile to help you source the perfect item for your kitchen or the perfect gift.

Our shop on the Wyle Cop can only be described as a treasure trove full of useful products for your kitchen.

Gill Shop



Our Team Of Experts

Cooking Kneads is owned and run by Gill, a farmer’s daughter who has always had a keen interest in cooking and started her career in the sports and hospitality sector. Having owned her own restaurant – The Lutine Bell in Newport Shropshire, worked at a local farm shop and ran catering events with her sister Sue, she is a wealth of cooking knowledge.

Our experienced and loyal staff are what makes Cooking Kneads truly unique. Jane and Tracey both worked for the previous 3 owners and they have, between them, over 35 years of valuable product knowledge. Rose and Kay complete the team and they all pride themselves on their exceptional customer service and friendly approach going that extra mile to fulfil your culinary requests! In 2016 Cooking Kneads received a certificate of merit from the Shrewsbury Civic Society, confirming their position as the go-to cooking shop in the Shropshire area.

Most importantly Cooking Kneads is local and independent and with that comes the personal shopping experience that only Gill and her team can give. We are always available via phone or email if you need advice before buying and if there’s something you can’t find in-store or online then we are more than happy to help you source it.
