This is a family run business and I got t know them quite well when they had their kitchens just off Fore Street, they'd arrive very early in the morning to start baking and we were always entertained by their drole banter echoing up the alley. Since then they have moved but the shop remains in Fore Street offering the... More

Wow! Recommended by a taxi driver. We were NOT disappointed. Coming from Wigan pastries are a bit of a speciality in our neck of the woods. Chicken n Mushroom pie was delicious. Also make traditional Cornish pastie. The cakes are out of this world! Wish I could transport this 4th generation bakery back home. Do not waste your time or... More

This is a small, traditional bakers shop. We tried their bread, pasties, pork pies and cakes.. Their white& brown loaves were just lovely - the white bread was like Victorian milk bread, so a little different. The pastry on all savouries was perfect and definitely home-made, tasty & great texture. The strawberry yoghurt cake was the best I have ever... More

The shop doesn't look much but the cornish pasties are still the best I've tasted. We've tried a few different places this year but these hit the spot. Filling, homely and tasty. Great to grab for lunch and then eat on the beach. Fantastic.

The charm of this shop is the size, but do not be fooled , it packs a big punch in local produce and products. No visit to St Ives is complete without aFerrell pasty and a saffron bun.
