Four doughnuts for a pound...and I wish I had not bothered. The texture of rubber cooked in stale, bitter fat. I tasted one, and put the rest out for the birds. The fact that even the seagulls would not eat them speaks reams. Avoid.

Stopped off on the way home in Crickhowell. Visited Askews Family Bakery they had amazing selection of cakes, bread and pastries. Indulged in a sausage roll, donut and a Viennese slice which were all delicious. Would visit again if ever in the area.

We don't live half near enough this shop for my liking - if we did, we'd shop there most days. The bread is freshly baked on the premises and the battenburg cake is a weekly favourite in our house. Well recommended and lovely service
