Welcome to Rode General Store & Cafe.

Our recently refurbished, modern shop and cafe is centrally located in the beautiful Somerset village of Rode, close to the historic city of Bath and bustling market town Frome.

We are also home to the village Post Office, where you can do a lot more than just buy stamps.

We provide goods, services and a warm welcome to the local community and visitors alike.


From Monday 15th June, our opening hours and the way we operate our business will be changing.

We will be open:

Monday 9-5:30
Tuesday 9-5:30
Wednesday 9-1
Thursday 9-5:30
Friday 9-5:30
Saturday 9-1


Between the hours of 09:00 – 11:00 we will continue to deliver to customers who are shielding and vulnerable. During this time we will serve customers through the window.

From 11:00 the shop will be open so that customers can browse and make purchases. As we’re a small premises, this will be on a one in, one out basis. We will also continue to serve through the window for customers who do not need to come in.

The cafe will continue to serve take-away hot drinks, along with homemade baked goods and a limited brunch menu.
Customers will be required to place their orders through the window, or over the phone, and wait outside.

The Post Office will continue to operate on a one in, one out basis.
The safety of our Customers and Staff is our priority.
We ask that everyone uses the hygiene facilities provided and observes the current social distancing rules and guidance.
We would like to thank all of our customers for their continued support and patience.❤️
