We are very lucky to live on the edge of a thriving village.  Briston and Melton Constable are joined with the boundary between the two being almost imperceptible.  Briston has two public houses that serve food; Explorers Bar and Coffee House and The Three Horseshoes There is a Co-operative store in both villages and additionally a Mace store in Briston. Melton Constable has Chinese, Indian and Kebab/pizza takeaways, there are further takeaways in Holt and a Thai restaurant just a few miles away.  There are three excellent butchers, one in Melton and two butchers and a bakery in Briston.
