A brief history, Victorian cook Sarah Nelson invented Grasmere Gingerbread back in 1854, a unique (nowhere else in the world will you find this), spicy-sweet cross between a biscuit and cake.
As you’ll see from the queues outside the shop (a old school built in 1630, who even saw William Wordsworth), it’s reputation has spread across the world. However it’s certainly worth the wait where you’ll experience what quite possibily is the tastiest gingerbread on the planet – I keep coming back for more!
As you’d expect it’s a takeaway only, therefore whilst enjoying your ginger snacks be sure to checkout the picturesque village of Grasmere.
Good news for those who are vegan, there’s no eggs or any animal derivatives in any of their gingerbread (although do check when there incase this has changed).
