First time I went to Stamford, near Nottingham, I checked my England travel book for hot tips and they recommended a bakery called Hambleton. The website seemed nice, good looking products. nice reviews on TripAdvisor and a god score on Google Maps. So, I decided to try it and it was amazing!
Back home, I decided to do some extra research on it and found out that they are a small East Midlands chain with one store in Nottingham.
Unfortunately, it is far from my place, but I returned there a few times and always enjoyed their products (even though I would be even happier if I could eat them in, warm and with a cup of coffee). My personal favorites are the Eccles cakes, pecan bun and a cheese and bacon wrap.
A couple of days ago I was searching for a goo Eccles cake, since I am going to visit Lancashire in a couple of weeks and the classic "where to find the best..." search on Google found a page titled "The best Eccles cake in the world!". Excited, I clicked and the page was talking about Hambleton! :) Well... at least I know I can cross that off from my list...
