Indulgent treat at Holmes Mill.

Back in the summer I blogged about  Bowland Beer Hall . at Holmes Mill in Clitheroe. The Hall which has what is thought to be the longest continuous bar in England serves 42 ever-changing cask ales, as well as a range of tasty bar snacks.  But horror of horrors, there are no puddings on the menu!  Happily the cafe at Holmes Mill is now open. And there is cake. 🙂

Kind of in love with those lights.

Lots of cakes.

And artisan breads.

After a weekend of mostly tidying and decluttering the house , a good strong coffee and dessert was needed!  I dragged the OH to the newly opened cafe which is situated in what was the old boiler room at the mill. Presently only coffee and cakes ( but a great selection of cakes!) are available, although breakfasts and lunches are planned for the not too distant future. I couldn’t resist this divine Berry Pavlova, whilst Wil chose a delicious Hazelnut & caramel cheesecake.

The cakes are all homemade on site ( or’ Holmes Made’ according to their website 😉 ) which is nice to know. Whilst sipping my coffee, I took a few photos of our surroundings. The patisserie opens out into the Bowland Brewery shop which in turn is next to a Gelateria. 🙂

  1. No desserts???!!!! It’s a good job this cafe has opened then! The cheesecake sounds delicious – I must try to remember to sample it when I’m next near Clitheroe!
