Popped in before the long drive home bought tarts, bakewell puddings for people at home. Also got a brownie and a slice of cherry bakewell cake both were delicious! Definitely worth popping in if in Bakewell

Thanks for pooping in and it will bring great satisfaction to artisan Bakers to read that you've enjoyed their hand made produce. We appreciate the recommendation and we'd love to see you again if your ever in this neck of the woods!

We went there very close to their "no longer serving time" but that was not a problem and we had great service. Food was excellent including the traditional Bakewell tart afterwards.
