We started baking nearly 20 years ago as a part time business, set up on a shoestring and soon ended up supplying over 40 local tea rooms with home made cakes and tray bakes. We decided to look for local premises and that's when we found this little place on Cherry Tree Square. It used to be an Estate Agents, a Memorial Shop and before that a "Gentleman's Club". Apparently you could hear the sound of dominoes clicking from outside in the square!
The Taste Tideswell project won us over to Tideswell. In particular Tim Nicols our village champion has been a great support to us. It's been lovely to get back behind the counter, speaking to locals who have welcomed us as part of the community.
David and I set up the shop as if it were a home kitchen - if you can see what is being prepared, (by those who serve you too), then you'll feel happy about what you are buying and eating. We make everything right in front of you and only sell what we'd happily eat ourselves, so we don't economise on ingredients, we roast our own ham, beef and spicy chicken breast and use only the freshest seasonal produce sourced locally whenever possible.
Our constantly changing menu offers scrumptious sandwiches and salad boxes to suit vegetarians and meat eaters alike, home made pasties hot out of the oven or just a naughty nibble The Cherry Tree can cater for all your culinary cravings.
Whilst everything is homemade and baked from our in shop kitchen we are particularly passionate about our.....
