The family-run business has been trading in the region for nearly four decades, with their current delicatessen on Norwood being established for twenty years.
The friendly wine merchants offers its customers affordable food and drink from around the world:
We have a counter full of artisan cheeses, explains its owner, John Roberts. These are mainly sourced from France and Britain. We sell cheese from a lot of small producers, so you won't find these in the major supermarkets.
The deli also supplies a range of vegetarian and gluten free cheeses, including the crumbly Cotherstone, veggie Black Bomber, and local Double Barrel Lincolnshire Poacher.
On top of this, they sell a wide range of meats, pates, olives and charcuterie products.
We stock a lot of Spanish food, as well as bringing in delicacies from London wholesalers, John continues. You can also purchase distinctive glassware from our shop.
And, of course, they have a huge range of wines, beers and spirits, not to mention cigars.
We originally started out in the off license business and continue to provide our customers with some of the best wines from across the globe, he enthuses. Our craft beers are particularly popular at the moment. We sell a lot of speciality beers, ales and lagers.
Yorkshire brands include the Great Newsome, Wold Top and Masons breweries.
Meanwhile, in the larder, a vast assortment of sweet and savoury treats can be found:
We sell a lot of locally-produced jams, honey, chutneys and curry sauces.

At Roberts & Speight, you're certainly well looked after. The team members are happy to advise on food pairings and share their recommendations with you, whatever the occasion.
The biggest tip I would give anyone is to look at the region of origin of the wine before you buy. You usually find that the food from this area or region will go really well with the drink, John tells us. For cheese specifically, choose a bottle that has good acidity. This will cut through the fattiness.
