  • Great gingerbread. ..very popular little shop..very much a tourist attraction in a tourist hot spot. ..if you like ginger you will love this.
  • Delicious gingerbread, a must have for the walks, snacks at home or for a gift. The shop is very small so you need to queue outside but once inside, it's lovely and the service is quick.
  • How can you put it into words? Simply the best gingerbread in the world. History and taste in one little place.
  • The shop is small and quaint, keeping the old world feeling of the place. The gingerbread comes in all sizes and amounts and they even post it to you if you can't get to the shop in person or to arrange for gifts to be sent directly from them on your behalf. The gingerbread is nothing like I have ever tasted before as they have a secret recipe passed down through the years. You must try some when passing of order it online and be prepared to relax and enjoy. .. mmm
  • Grasmere Gingerbread is an institution. It's like manna from above and should be included as part of the '5 a day'. The shop is quaint and has maintained its authenticity and the products are well priced.
