Tull's Fine Foods originated from a residential dwelling and is believed to be one of the earliest shops in Wickham.

The first known trading butcher was a Mr Franklin who was succeeded by Mr Walter West when he purchased the property in 1895.

1901

At this time Mr Walter West traded in Bishops Waltham as well as in Wickham and had both of his shops fitted with the same shop front tiles by Carters tiles of Poole, which are still there to this day.

At Wickham and Bishops Waltham both shops ran a small abattoir on the premises, where Mr G.B Tull worked for Mr West until 1939, at which point he was asked to come to Wickham to manage the shop. Shortly before the war years, slaughtering stopped at Wickham and Mr G.B Tull ran the shop during rationing.

In 1946 Mr G.B Tull purchased the business and traded from the shop under its new name G.B Tull. He ran two delivery vans north and south of Wickham.

In 1967 J.E Tull joined the shop, and within four years became a partner in the business. At which point it was decided to extend the shop over the drive area and expand the range of products. The business became known as G.B Tull and Son.

J.E Tull took over in 1981 and started trading under the shop name J.E Tull. The shop went from strength to strength as J.E Tull expanded the customer base during this time.

In 2004 Graham Merritt became a partner and it was decided that the shop needed to be rebranded and refitted. The refit included modernisation of the shop with new cabinets made especially in Italy, which now allow us to display over 100 differing trays of meat and deli products.

It was decided to call the business Tull's Fine Foods as the family name had been a part of the village for such a long time.

To this day we uphold the traditional values that have been passed from generation to generation and still adhere to the high standards of quality and service that Mr West past on to G.B Tull all those years ago.
