Fodor's Expert Review The Old Original Bakewell Pudding Shop

$ Bakewell British

Given the plethora of local rivals, it takes a bold establishment to claim its Bakewell puddings as "original," but those served here are among the best. The "pudding" in question is actually a dense, sugary pie with a jam and almond filling and a puff pastry crust, eaten cold or hot with custard or cream. A more common variant, the Bakewell tart, is made with shortcrust pastry, but aficionados consider the pudding to be more authentic. The cozy oak-beam dining room also turns out commendable brunch dishes, sandwiches, and main courses including steak-and-ale pie.
