Been here quite a few times now it is a lovely little shop and the sticky toffee pudding is lovely but I do prefer the sticky toffee cake. Kids loved to go into the shop and buy some sweets. However it is quite expensive which is expected and some of the staff do seem to look down their noses at... More

Went in to buy the Cartmel sticky toffee pudding(hmmm!), what a nice shop, sold all kinds of local produce, wines, spirits, sweets, cakes etc. Also you can buy hot snacks to take out including hot drinks. Surprised at the earlier comments on miserable staff, all though the shop was very busy, i found them all to be pleasant and approachable.

The cafe was ok and the young girls working were pleasant, it is the older shop staff that let it down. The lady serving on the deli was quite rude and the man on the till just so miserable, I would have left the place if it wasn't for the sticky toffee pudding that I went especially to buy. The...

Taking part in the Cartmel 10k Lakeland Trail run this morning, all I could think of was your sticky toffee pudding. Think I almost bought the lot! Nice little shop selling products sourced from Cumbria etc. Busy little village too, my first time. I know you can buy these puds in some specialist retailers now, however when in Cartmel....Can't wait... More

Had the most fabulous bacon and egg sandwich for breakfast and a brilliant pot of tea before we had to set off home. Perfect end to great trip. Bought some sticky toffee pudding for when we got home.

Collect a wicker basket at the door and experience this quaint, charming little shop. Our main aim was to purchase Cartmel Sticky Toffee Puddings which we did along with cookies and delights from the deli. Lovely visit.

Away to South Lakeland for a long weekend and an absolutely MUST - as well as walking, relaxing, exploring was to taste Sticky Toffee Pudding at its very home - The Cartmel Village Shop. Oh my goodness - could it possibly taste better than this?? Tiny cafe above the shop...don't miss this whatever you do!!
