The Apple Pie Take Away will be open 7 days a week from Thursday the 2nd of July.

Monday - Friday, 10am-4pm.

Saturday - Sunday, 9am-4pm.

Our bakery has now grown to spread across two floors with a skilled team of 7 bakers and confectioners producing hand crafted goods from scratch, 7 days a week, with an emphasis on quality, freshness and good value.

Our head baker David Smith has been with us since 1986 and has over the years bagged several awards including runner up in the coveted bakery of the year competition run by the ‘British Baker’ magazine in London.

The counter is stocked up every morning with fresh products brought down from the bakery and up from the kitchen. We serve up sandwiches made from the bread, salad and filling or your choice wrapped up in a box ready to go in your rucksack or picnic box. We have hot pasties and premium pies combined with a range of over 20 cakes to satisfy any sugar cravings. Traditional tray bakes are available alongside indulgent cream cakes and seasonal delights such as mince pies, hot cross buns, and not forgetting our famous apple pie.


Our products are in demand, with businesses throughout the south lakes stocking our bread and cakes. If you are interested in our products on a wholesale basis please contact us.

On special request we can also create birthday, wedding and specialty cakes.
