When in Stow, call in to see Alan at the Old Bakery Tea Rooms. We had a very delicious and filling lunch. The soup of the day was very tasty, as were the sandwiches and melts. Very friendly service with reasonable prices.

We can adapt our regular menu where possible. It is fairly limited as cheese and eggs are widely used but can offer good salad and potato options. We have entertained vegans pretty often in the past. Thanks.
