Our Menu

At Merchant's, we endeavour to produce a good selection of homemade goodies. We pride ourselves on baking delicious plain, fruit & cheese scones, which can be served as part of a cream or savoury tea. Time-permitting, there might be speciality scones such as Ginger with orange and ginger marmalade. 

All our cakes are home-baked and you can expect to find classics like Victoria Sponge, Coffee & Walnut, Lemon Drizzle, Best Ever Chocolate Cake, along with a selection of biscuits and bars … to name just a few!

For those with gluten intolerance we always have something to entice you, such as Cherry & Walnut Brownies, Clementine & Almond cake or Apple & Coconut loaf.
