ROBERT ‘BOBTAIL’ BARHAM
Bobtail Fruit was first established in 1950, by the late Robert Barham I. The name Bobtail was developed from the original owner, as this was his nickname given to him whilst he ran the fruit stall.

FROM A FRUIT STALL...
Traditionally, Bobtail Fruit was merely one single fruit stall based in the heart of London. Since the 1950’s Bobtail Fruit began to develop numerous Fruit Stalls across some of London’s most prestigious landmarks.

In the early 1990’s Bobtail Fruit began to deliver fresh fruit into offices and workplaces across London. Whether at the market or at your office, we go that extra mile to ensure that we exceed our customer’s expectations.
