Popped in for coffee, saw the cakes, thought we'd join in !
Ordered a Latte and an Americano with cream (I'm always amazed at the amount of places that do not serve cream!) along with a Bakewell slice and a Bakewell tart.
Service was quick and friendly.
Would definitely pop in again.

Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed and waited for a seat as we were dining in. COVID regulations were applied,which was ok by us. We both ordered the home made pies, mash, peas and gravy, which were hot, tasty and flavoursome and reasonably priced. Service throughout was polite and friendly. After we had our lunch we purchased different cakes, to take home, which again we're tasty and well made. In all, a lovely experience and recommended.

This review is about the order I placed on line and the products Bakewell Tart and Bakewell Pudding.
Ordered online on 15 th October recieved 17th October. How is that for efficiency..
Boxed individually and addressed individually but attached to each other, excellent if they had become separated.
The box is clean cut and stylish enough to give as a present. Also on ondering I was given the option of a note placed inside the box with a message should I have wished.
Now to the Bakewell Cake -Beautiful a rich short pasty that melts in the mouth and equally rich filling, so moist. The topping bubbled up golden colour with lovely almond slices on top.
The taste and texture is sublime delicate flavours that blend so well together. A pure delight.
Too early to write about the Bakewell pudding in taste as I've not opened it as yet . However in appearance the pudding is similar outside to the tart except it's more springy to the touch but golden brown and almost like a custard tart but I think there the similarity ends...ps Nothing like Mr. K..so dont compare..
I'm so pleased I ordered these wonderful products on line.. thank you .

We visited here 3 times and I made a Be line to visit again when passing on my own a week later. I have to say the other review stating cash only is incorrect as they are card only with Covid. I felt Covid safe. Sanitising of tables and disposable menus were excellent. The iced Bakewell tart is just fantastic. I also had a bacon sandwich on my last visit which was lovely. Heading back tomorrow for more treats. Faye the owner was just so friendly and staff were great. WELL DONE

Didn't visit cafe as town heaving with bikers. Shop very small and tarts very expensive at 7.75 for a medium tart. Was very disappointed in taste. Pastry case with layer of almond paste covered in icing. Mr kipplings exceedingly better! Also cash only in these times of covid.

Are you sure this was our shop? We take card and cash and whenever asked, we always say we prefer card payment. The cafe is card only also, and in the shop, approx 80% of customers use card.
