About Citrus

Who we are and how we got here

Having been fully trained by two of the biggest coffee companies in the world, Ross had always wanted his own shop. Jake had been in management for a chain of health clubs until financial cut-backs changed his plans. Together, they decided to pool their experience and knowledge and embark on a new venture.

Scouting the county for suitable opportunities, the pair settled upon The Greedy Pig in Kelsall, near Chester, Cheshire.

After 18 months and a total transformation, The Greedy Pig was renamed to Citrus to better reflect the freshness they offer and to truly make the shop their own.

Their mission; to improve on the work of the previous owner and to provide locals and visitors alike with quality deli-style take-away food, custom-roasted coffee and a wide range of other snacks and drinks.

The Team

The team which makes all of this happen

  • Ollie Marshall
    Deli-Café Assistant

    A local, Ollie's face may be familiar as he was for some time, the friendly face managing the bar at The Royal Oak and more recently, helping to grow the success of ALDI with it's newest store in Chester as one of their managers. Now, Ollie will be heading up our mornings and stepping in during our busy periods.

  • Ross Brunton
    Owner - Front of House

    With almost a decade's experience in Coffee, combined with a great mix of almost two decades in customer service, Ross was an obvious choice to provide second-to-none coffee creativity coupled with excellent customer interaction.

  • Jake Smith
    Owner - Back of House

    At the same time as local government cuts led to Jake's redundancy, fait dealt a bitter sweet twist after his uncle died suddenly, leaving Jake a small sum of money to invest in his future. From that acorn has grown The Greedy Pig.

  • Lyn Brunton
    Front of House Assistant

    Lending a helping hand, Lyn is the saviour to our many crisis, jumping in to turn her hand to coffee making, panino slicing or cake baking

  • Julie Sant
    Kitchen Assistant

    Julie has continued to step in to help where she can, usually fighting with sausage batches and challenging the other kitchen staff to see how many double yolks they can find, she literally saves our bacon every week!

  • Tom Goodwin
    Kitchen Assistant

    Unfortunately, Tom doesn't come in as often as we'd like. Not only is he great with customers but having had a catering place of his own in years gone by, he's a dab hand at all things we ask of him.

Small sums are often passed on to local Brownie groups, Duke of Edinburgh Award, and the local Branch of the Royal British Legion.

Book a Basket

Pre-book your picnic basket online

We have brought in a fantastic idea (if we don’t say so ourselves)! You can now book a picnic basket which we will prepare in advance for you so that you can drop by, pick it up and set off for a day out equipped with all you need to enjoy the sun with a basket full of food for you and your friends.

In each basket, for every person, you will get a sandwich, cake, packet of crisps and a drink. You will also get the waterproof picnic blanket (so you don’t have a problem with dew on the grass), biodegradable rubbish bags, knives, forks and napkins. Everything you need to enjoy your day.

Baskets are available for 2, 3, 4 or 5 people and we can make special requests for extras if we can fit it in. The baskets range from £18 – £40. There is a basket fee which is refundable when the basket, blanket and all of the returnables are brought back into the shop. This ensure they come back on time and don’t go walk-abouts.
