Jamie's Italian has launched its first deli operation at its restaurant in Bath.
Located at Milsom Place, Deli @ Jamie's Italian opened this week, offering an all-day menu of take-away dishes ranging from coffee and pastries in the morning to sandwiches, salads and pasta dishes.
The deli will go head to head with Carluccio's, which will open its outlet at Milsom Place in September.
The Deli @ Jamie's also features a meat counter offering both continental and British cured meats and cheeses while dried products, preserves and condiments as well as dishes, bowls and serving boards, will also be on offer.
Commenting on the launch, Jamie Oliver said: "This is such an exciting development for Jamie's Italian and Bath is one of our most beautiful restaurants so I'm really happy we're launching there.
"We've been talking about doing a deli since before we even opened the first Jamie's Italian in Oxford and finally we're in a position where we can do it."
