We believe in good, wholesome food, traditionally made without the use of unnecessary preservatives and colourings. We are keen to use the very best ingredients and from the closest source, keeping food miles to a minimum and our impact on the environment as small as possible. Whether you are looking for the very best quality bread for yourself, for a gift, or you’d just like to try something different, why not come and see what we have to offer. We also have a wonderful patisserie chef. We hope that you will enjoy his some of his creations: Tarte au Citron; chocolate ganache tarts; some fabulous cheesecakes; as well as delicious Tarte au Pomme. As a wonderful compliment to our bakery, we also have a farm shop with a gorgeous cheese room, Belgian chocolates, and tea from Tea Nation to name a few of our wonderfully unique products. One cannot forgot our cafe! Our chefs and bakers freshly prepares all the dishes on the menu. You can also find many goodies from the bakery on the menu.

Lovely food and very friendly

Pooped in here for brunch with my wife, 3 year old daughter and in laws. Lovely, calm and relaxing establishment, very nice food and very friendly staff. Not cheap but worth it I think for the quality and ethics of the food.

I went there with my boy and a baby, the menu is limited and not child friendly at all. I ordered some quiche and sausage roll, the portions are so small and pretentious that I was shocked. It did taste good but just because they add a tiny amount of coleslaw, salad and some chutney to the dishes it still... More

If a place can improve on perfection, the team at Mayfield have. The great new take out service have a fantastic range of sandwiches, pastries and sweet things. Even better now that it's open 5 days a week, not sure if it's good news for my waistline though!

This lovely little café serves lovely coffee and fantastic cake and pastries fresh from the bakery. Service is good and price at a rate I think that reflects the superb quality of the yummies. Don't forget to purchase a loaf of the varied flavour breads, you won't be disappointed just spoilt for choice!

A lovely day learning how to make bread successfully. Hands on help was available from Nick and Alan with lots of advice and tips. We were also treated to a tasty lunch in the cafe. All in all a great day (and my own bread has turned out really well thanks to all the help and advice).
