We have an announcement!
The Tea Room will be closed from Tuesday 22nd through to Friday 25th August.
Please don’t panic if you’ve ordered a celebration cake, or want to take advantage of our online offer! Our little bakery at Bradley Lane will handle those and you'll still be able to collect from the Tea Room.
We’ve decided to close for those few days to make way for a new counter allowing more space for cakes!!
Apologies if you were thinking of visiting us that week.
To make up for it a bit (!) we’ve included a recipe for you to try for yourselves. The kids will love it!
Why We Need The Space
3 years ago, our love of all things cake, along with our passion for baking is what fuelled our decision to open the Tea Room, and that passion's only grown thanks to your feedback and custom!
We can’t believe how time has flown. We’re self-taught bakers who are still learning every day & this coming year we’ll be completing our Patisserie Diploma. Our skills, knowledge and confidence are growing and we want to show you what we can do!!
But the cake counter just isn't big enough any more!
Although we have our separate bakery unit now, storage & display space in the Tea Room itself is limited. With many customers now taking 5 or 6 additional cakes away with them, sometimes the remaining selection of cakes on offer in the Tea Room has been limited by mid-afternoon.
What’ll Be Different?
Fingers crossed, from 10am on Saturday 26th August 2017, thanks to a stunning new counter, we will have more than enough cake for everyone!
Unfortunately, those beloved blue ‘comfy’ chairs will have to disappear....
We're sorry to see them go - we’ve had many glasses of wine on them after 14 hour days!!
Look out for some special offers when we re-open!
We’re planning some new additions to our regular cake line-up too, with (hopefully) some whole cakes available to buy, for those last minute requests.
As always, thank you so much for supporting the dreams of two local sisters!
Do what you love, love what you do!

PS: Here’s the recipe!
Mrs Lyon’s Rocky Road
Rocky Road is such a crowd pleaser!
Here's our recipe but feel free to leave things out or add more if you like! As you can see the only thing we weigh is the chocolate. It really doesn’t matter, do it to your own taste. It’s so versatile!
300g of your favourite chocolate
A big handful of mini marshmallows
A few glace cherries broken in half
A mars bar cut into small pieces
A snickers bar cut into small pieces
A treat size bag of maltesers
A handful of raisins
Icing sugar for dusting
Grease and line a loaf tin.
Melt all of the chocolate over a bain-marie. While the chocolates melting, put all the other ingredients into a large bowl.
Stir in the melted chocolate making sure everything is coated in the chocolate and spread into the loaf tin. Press down slightly as this will make for easier cutting later.
Leave to set in the fridge for a few hours.
Once set we cut ours into bars and dust with icing sugar. If you have any edible glitter sprinkle it on to give a wow factor.
Invite your friends round, put the kettle on and enjoy!
