Bought some ginger bread here 6 small pieces cost £3.70 and one small cake cost £6.70. It was all well overpriced despite a constant queue of people waiting to be served and no prices displayed until ... more »
Absolutely excellent! I'm a local and live about 30 miles away and always take time to go visit here for the famous Grasmere Gingerbread! The staff are dressed in period costume, the smells are amazing of the wares being baked, and the customer service is great considering how small the shop is and how many customers they deal with on a daily basis. Cannot recommend to go highly enough! If you are in the lakes then definitely visit! I guarantee you will be returning on a regular basis!!!!
Great gem in Grasmere has tons of traditional charm that even people who don't go for old English culture can enjoy. Friendly staff. Decent prices and selection. And very tasty gingerbread. That's what brought me back after going nearly ten years ago. Layout inside changed slightly bit still small and quaint. Definitely a highlight to go to in Grasmere and also if in the general area in the lakes. Just different and unique to the area. Also the gingerbread makes a great companion to a day on the fells.
