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...More

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.

The Bakewell pie is mouth-wateringly delicious. Service was prompt and helpful. Easy to find. We didn't use the tea room but everything looked clean, & delicious. Covid secure too.

Thanks for the feedback and commentary Simon. The traditional Bakewell tart can be quite different to many people's expectations and isn't for everyone. Might be worth trying the Bakewell pudding next time - they are served warm (with custard, ice-cream or cream) so as we...More
