Reasons for trip

Forget Thomas the Baker or Cooplands – this is the place to go to! The range of cakes is second to none with traditional favourites like double chocolate slice, carrot cake, lemon cake, as well as tray bakes and rather more unusual offerings, like the rhubarb and strawberry slice. Cakes are a generous size and cheap compared with other bakers. Quality is as good, if not better. With only a week, I wasn’t able to eat my way through all the offerings, but the double chocolate slice got full marks from everyone.

They also do a range of savouries too – I found the sausage and apple roll a bit too garlicy for my taste, but the small steak pie was delicious.

They open from 7.30 so this is a good place to get stocked up with supplies for a picnic. However, they do shut at 4pm so if you are planning on the double chocolate slice for pudding, make sure you have bought it earlier….

As well as the Bakery, there is also a restaurant at the back of the shop.
