Honeybuns Bakery, Sherbourne

One of the first bakeries to make great tasting gluten, wheat and dairy free cakes from natural ingredients. Good lookin’ marketing and a green ethos; they deserve a big up. Read more

Otterton Mill

Sleepy Otterton lies about 1 mile inland along the River Otter from Budleigh Salterton, the very beautiful seaside town towards the end of the Jurassic Coast. The Mill is the hub of the village and is enterprising in every way. There is a great cafe/restaurant, a working mill , large gift shop and cook shop, bakery and deli/food store. They also run events from time to time and often promote local arts and crafts. The gardens along the river have a selection of outside sculptures that include a brilliant turf sofa complete with remote control which seems to only show the channel running idyllic riverside views.

Dorset Knob Biscuits, Moores Bakery, Morecombelake

I really shouldn’t find it funny but I do EVERY time I see the packaging. Its the terrible juvenile humour I can’t seem to shake off. Hymns at school used to keep me entertained for hours whenever the word “breast” was sung so I suppose the “Dorset Knob” is only a natural progression. At least I hope so.

To be honest I don’t think they are that delicious (good with cheese) but none the less well worth the purchase just for that tin. Baked by Moores Bakery, Morcombelake and available at their shop plus most other independent food stores in Dorset.



Lunch at Town Mill Bakery, Lyme Regis

Back at my favourite Bakery to meet a literary friend for lunch, after a miserable wet and windy walk. I cannot get through the day without a walk and will brave every weather condition, even if it means arriving for a lunch date with wet limp hair pasted across my forehead, muddy boots and an anorak. Having earlier forced the children to walk to school in these conditions and arriving with at least one in tears, I feel proud of my gung ho attitude. Such great parenting skills I have.

The literary whizz has a mixed root veg bake and I have a sweet potato, chickpea and lemongrass soup. Bread is foregone by both to reduce the Winter bulge. Its all delicious. I photograph the amazing cakes and even though that damned lemon polenta is shouting out at me, I keep it purely 2 dimensional. For today.

  • lunch everyday, except Monday, 12:30 – 2:30
  • only soup on Sundays (pizza too in the Summer months)
  • all vegetarian
