New Delicatessen Chez Ben to Open in Marlow

| | ,

As we have previously reported, a new delicatessen Chez Ben is opening in Marlow, at 3 Spittal Street. 

Due to open on May 25th, Chez Ben is the brainchild of food and wine aficionado Benoit Privey, a former grocery and wine distributor.

It’s always exciting to welcome a new business to Marlow, and we wish Chez Ben all the best! Here’s all the details direct from the new business:


Bringing high quality and authentic delicacies from across the UK and Europe, The new store aims to inspire local foodies with a smorgasbord of tasty food and drink specialities, sourced from independent producers.

With contacts across the UK and Europe, Benoit’s experience will ensure Chez Ben serves only the finest authentic foods. 

Shoppers can expect to find an exciting cheese and wine selection, as well as charcuterie from Spain, and other tasty treats. As restrictions continue to ease, Chez Ben intends to host regular tastings at the shop to connect with locals and build a passionate culinary community.

Having worked within the food and wine industry for several years, store owner Benoit Privey is excited to share his knowledge of fine food and wines with the local community. Benoit commented, “I have always been a food and wine connoisseur and I love the stories behind the food. Growing up in France, food was a key part of connecting with friends and family. When I decided to move out of London, I was looking for a sense of community and beautiful countryside. I instantly fell in love with Marlow and I cannot wait to create and share stories with local residents over good food. The foodie scene in Marlow is inspiring to me, with so many outstanding restaurants to enjoy.”

Recognising the growing demand for authentic food options in Marlow, Sorbon Estates has worked closely with Chez Ben to bring this new store to the Spittal Street. Leasing Manager, Robert Martin, said, “We have invested heavily in bringing new and exciting independent stores to Marlow to help meet the growing push to support local independents. We were highly selective when it came to finalising who would take this space and are delighted to welcome Chez Ben to Marlow. The central location is perfect for allowing a steady footfall and we cannot wait for Marlow residents to experience the authentic flavours on offer and learn from Benoit’s tremendous experience of fine wines and foods.”
