We stumbled on the garden of this bakery without realising it was part of an amazing home made bakery. I had the hot tiger prawn baguette and it was one of the best I have ever had. The portion was enormous and creative with lovely salad selection and lentils etc - delicious. Cant fault our food and drink and it... More

The casual passer by sauntering through Kirkby Lonsdale would be forgiven for thinking this establishment to be just a bakery. I certainly did when I wandered in looking for a snack as I had arrived early for a meeting. On entering you notice that this place is much more that just a bakery there is a beautifully presented little cafe... More

In Kirkby Lonsdale you are spoilt for choice for places to eat but here is a little gem we stumbled across whilst we were deciding where to go. The meal itself was excellent, very tasty and great value, the service was speedy and efficient by staff the couldn't do enough for you and the setting a cobbled courtyard was just... More

You are spoilt for choice when looking for some where to eat in Kirkby, most are pretty good to be honest, but we have eaten here several times and never been disappointed. The food is home made as you would expect, the soup with some of their own bread bread is brilliant and the cakes have to be tried to... More

We stopped off at Kirby Lonsdale en route to the Lakes and found this little gem. We had a delicious well cooked breakfast with good service and friendly staff. Just what we needed to set us up for the rest of our journey!

We were looking for somewhere other than a pub for lunch and saw the courtyard tucked away behind the bakery - very impressed with the food and service was also good despite being very busy. We will certainly call in again next time we are in Kirkby Lonsdale

I thought this was a lovely little bakery. Anyone regularly driving from the lakes to Leeds knows what a truly grim trek it can be. Stopped off for some breakfast and it was a lovely halfway marker (convinced ourselves that to avoid the reality of the road ahead). Food was spot on, as was the service. There was a very... More

Thanks for your visit and kind words. Yes , the A65 is grim , but our town makes for a lovely detour. Sometimes when you live somewhere you can end up taking it for granted , until you read comments like yours and you realise just how unique Kirkby is and how lucky we are to live here. I hope...

Quite rightly the owner Owen (who is quite a sensative soul) has been upset by a couple of recent negative comments and it may be that even these have been put on by enviouse folk (hence my title). The Bakery is a great asset to the town and offers a superb range of quality Breads and cakes The Cafe has... More
