The Old Bakery Tea Rooms & Restaurant
The Old Bakery Tea Rooms & Restaurant has been a bakery for more than 100 years, and it’s this rich history that makes it so unique. It’s a traditional place, with flowers on the tables, embroidered linen and a friendly welcome.
Locally sourced homemade cakes, cream teas and light lunches are served up in this Tudor bakehouse, which is ideally situated in the heart of the antiques district just minutes from the town’s market square. Perhaps refuel with a delicious ploughman’s featuring a selection of cheeses, warm granary bread, apple, walnuts and celery served with homemade chutney. The addition of a traditional three-tiered afternoon tea to the menu is very welcome, and includes a delicious spread of savoury sandwich fillings, sweet meringue nests and fresh strawberry cream and jam scones. The Old Bakery offers one of the most authentic tastes of Old England around; indeed, it featured in Margaret Thornby’s Guide to Tea Rooms of Britain. It also scooped Heart of Gold Best Tearoom at the 2013 Lincolnshire Life County Cuisine Awards.
Excellent service completes this charming tearoom’s offering, with staff who are friendly and attentive. The Old Bakery also provides a take-out service, asking that customers provide 48 hours’ notice so their order can be freshly made in time for collection.
