Breakfast at Farmer’s Feast Cafe in Bakewell

The Farmers Feast Cafe in Bakewell is located at the Agricultural Business Center on Agricultural Way right next to where they hold the monthly Farmers Market. I don’t really know why I hadn’t eaten there before, maybe because it always looks too busy or more likely because more often than not when we visit the…

Hassop Station Cafe on the Monsal Trail

Hassop Station Cafe just a mile or so away from Bakewell lies right alongside the popular Monsal Trail that runs for 8.5 miles along a former Midland Railway line. At the station as well as the cafe, and a gift shop, you can also hire bikes to ride the trail. The place seemed popular with…

Austrian Sausages in Derbyshire England? Well why not!

  A Sunday afternoon drive in the Derbyshire countryside should have been accompanied by a traditional sunday roast dinner in a country pub, but in the village of Bakewell I was drawn into sampling some sausages at the Tiroler Stuberl Austrian Coffee shop and Sausage Importer. Tiroler Stuberl is a small Family Business that has been serving…
