Always great products - a little pricey, but you truly get what you pay for. Bread superb - cakes almost impossible to resist. Cheesestraws are nice little side. Really friendly and amazingly knowledgeable staff.

4 tea cakes, £4.80!! They were nice and solid, but this did seem a bit excessive to all of us. Nice though to get a leaflet about the bakery.
