News from the Purcell's kitchen

As many of you will know, we have been in the process of buying a new house, and after a 6 month wait, we FINALLY have a moving date of next Monday (26th)!!! This means we will be closed on Monday, but we’ll be back open (and probably very bleary eyed) at 9am on Tuesday…

As you probably expected, we have reached the tough decision to remain closed tomorrow. This is purely to protect ourselves financially against the cost of multiple fridges threatening to break in the heat when the ovens are blazing away! We hope you can understand this is not a decision we have reached lightly – remember,…
Jul 13 2022
HOT WEATHER ALERT 🚨 🔥🥵 We have been debating this for a couple of days now, but given Monday’s forecasted temperature, we have reached the sensible decision to close on Monday. As you can imagine, the bake house gets incredibly hot when the ovens are on, and not only does this make for a very…
