An excellent traditional baker, specialising in local varieties.

What did you like about the Food Shop?

Well, it's in a very nice little village but that's about it.

What did you not like about the Food Shop?

My grandfather ran a bakery, all his food was delicious. He always said that when the supermarkets came along, that the only thing that would keep his business going was if he kept the quality of his baking up.
So he was very particular about the ingredients he used. I was very disappointed with this bakery, I bought pasties, pies, sausage rolls, bread, cream cakes, spending about £20, expecting traditional baked products as good as the ones my grandad used to make.
Where I live in York there are very few traditional bakeries left. The lady behind the till, said would I like a box rather than a bag, which I was grateful for. However, none of the stuff tasted very nice.
When I got home, I saw on the side of the box it said BAKO ready prepared cornish pasties, made on some industrial estate somewhere, so presumably reheated on the premises.
I can understand for convenience why a bakery would do this, but I didn't find any of the food very tasty.
I know a lot of bakeries now do this and they also use bread and cake ready mixes, but in my opinion they do not taste anywhere near as good as the traditionally made products.
Worst of all - I'm sure it was artificial cream in cream cakes, and it tasted disgusting.
I would not shop there again, which is a pity, because that little bakery had a fantastic location and could have thrived as a traditional artisan craft bakery.
