A hidden gem in the picturesque Tudor cobbled street of Church Lane in Ledbury, here you’ll find a vast selection of ever changing cakes, tray-bakes, cookies and pastries (usually around fifteen to chose from) in addition to a delicious savoury menu too.

You know you’re in for a treat when you find a ‘today’s cakes’ board outside! Some of our favourites include the chocolate and Guinness cake (also popular with the locals), the courgette and lime cake and summer berry frangipane. Other recommendations include the Spanish orange and almond cake, dark chocolate and sea salt cookies and St Lucia banana cake.

Although small both inside and out (it also gets very busy at weekends) the enclosed garden is delightful and the staff are always extremely friendly. Inside the Tudor cafe building you’ll find quaint indoor seating complete with their own furniture products for sale upstairs.

Once refuelled why not work those legs with a climb up the Malverns, do try out one of our very own routes below, or head on a hilly climb towards Woolhope and Hoarwithy.
