“Tasty pie and chips”
Reviewed 12 May 2014 via mobile

Stopped here for lunch after a long walk, and found Apple Pie to be reassuringly busy. Their pies are delicious and can be eaten in or bought as takeaway.
We ate in and added a bowl of twice-cooked chips to share. Their own coffee blend was pretty good.
Apple Pie is open from 9am every day, does breakfast and takeaway rolls etc so I'm sure we'll be back.
They also have outdoor seating to the side.

“Beautiful Baking and cosy cafe”
Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

The selection of home baked pasties and buns is amazing. If the display of delights wasn't enough to get the taste buds excited, there are even videos showing behind the counter of the prep and baking process. We tucked into warm apple pie and the warm chocolate fudge cake. Both heavenly! We left with pasties which are perfection. Love this place. This was our 4th visit and many to come.....

“Lovely place for lunch”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Had to wait a while for a table but I am glad we did. We were just going to have tea and cake, but then ended up being tempted by the lovely lunch menu.
The bakery items looked amazing too but we were too full from lunch to enjoy any of them- now I wish we had bought some to take away!

“Brilliant Cafe and dog friendly too!!! ”
Reviewed 10 May 2014 via mobile

I travelled from Lancashire to The Apple Pie Cafe purely as it was a dog-friendly Cafe. We visited during the bank holiday weekend and it was really busy but the service and quality was not affected at all.
There were several dogs around the seated area and it didn't cause any issues or problems. The food was fabulous and very fresh. The staff were very attentive which was refreshing to experience.
We had main courses, desserts and coffee but the bill wasn't overpriced so all-in-all this is a cafe I would recommend wholeheartedly, *especially if you have a four legged friend!!!
