Bakery County Hall

Bakery County Hall

On Saturday I finally got round to visiting the Ray Harryhausen exhibition at the London Film Museum in County Hall on the South Bank (which I can highly recommend). After a couple of hours buggering about with film props, followed by a pizza and wine-based lunch, I suggested a visit to the Bakery Country Hall. I first heard about this place when it appeared on the I Heart Cupcakes blog, complete with some cool pics of the macaroon and cupcake-adorned cafe interior.

There was a large range of goods on offer including tarts, brownies and various layer cakes and cupcakes. I opted for the Victoria sponge, which was fantastic, while my tea party buddy went for the carrot cake which I’m reliably informed was also very tasty but could have done with a bit less of the rich icing.

A word of warning – the prices are a tad steep. In fact, they’re extremely bloody high (£5.50 for a slice of cake!). Luckily for the bakery, I’m both stupid and greedy, so I paid it anyway. However, the service was very good, the tea was nice, the cakes were lovely and it was all served on vintage china. Plus, being on the South Bank, just round the corner from the London Eye, it is a bit of tourist hotspot, so prices will inevitably be slightly marked up.

For a more detailed write-up of the bakery and some nice pictures of the decor, check out the post by @annecupcake over at I Heart Cupcakes.
