I think this is a place that could do really well if they brought their coffees up to the standard of say 'Coffee One'. It shows a lot of promise. When it comes to cakes they are probably the best around, just take a look at their website. Also they have a very nice position in an attractive part of... More

After a long hike it was pleasant to sit down and be served cracking tea and cake. Super staff too. Try the fat free welsh bread. Excellent

Called in for a sit down and drink with my nieces. 2 hot chocolates & a bottle of coke. The service was good and the lady (owner I believe) suggested a few different cakes and offered cream & marshmallows on the hot chocolates. The staff were busy packing mini heart shaped Welsh cakes for 'wedding favours' - They looked lovely!... More

We had one day to find a cake/cakes for a celebration of the life of our baby granddaughter one year after her passing. Sharon had a box of cupcakes ready for us the same afternoon which were perfectly and personally decorated and which also tasted delicious. We didn't expect success in finding a cake and certainly not something so special.

Sharon @ the pocket bakery made us a 5 tier birdcage wedding cake, each layer had a different filling & it was covered in vintage edible lace & pearls with gorgeous sugar flowers & tiny birds & butterflies covering it. It was literally the most gorgeous intricate wedding cake we've ever seen, her talents r endless! She also made us... More

I've been twice. This is in the courtyard at the back of the square and has a nice outside seating area, just right for the sunny days we've been having recently. First time I wanted a sandwich but though they do made to order was pushed towards one of their pre-prepared ones. Had a Tuna Mayo which when I tasted... More

It's rather a tight squeeze in here if the weathers not good enough to sit at the outside tables. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the service is good but the food is rather disappointing. The cafe food was perfectly acceptable for a light lunch and the coffee was good but the savoury pie and tart we bought... More

I regularly return to The Pocket Bakery for a welcoming cup of coffee and a delicious cake. I have also bought bread from here on several occasions and have thoroughly enjoyed the freshness and fantastic taste. The giant cinnabuns (my favourite) are only one of the many ‘little’ treats on offer here. I would highly recommend taking a trip to... More
