You can watch pies and traiteur meals being prepared in the open plan kitchen, and they often give pie-making demonstrations - they are all hand-made, the only machine used being the oven in which they are cooked. Dishes offered might include 'Sweet and Sour Pork', 'Jacob Lamb Tagine' and 'Longhorn Beef with Melton Red Ale'.
You'll also find plenty of other local products, including a good selection of gluten-free groceries; plus excellent items from their bakery.
