Picture this. I had just woken up after a hefty night of drinking, and I woke up feeling like hurricane Harvey had just gone round two but inside my stomach and my head. BREAKFAST, the words clambering out of the tent as if my stomach had pronounced it itself. I needed something to settle this incredible storm and I needed it now. As I ventured out of my camp site and into the local town I searched for the venue that would cater for my needs, and there it was. It was a dark, gloomy Tuesday and all my hope was lost when my eyes saw that all the coffee shops and takeaways were closed due to it being such an early time to venture for scran. And then, I saw it. There in the distance, I saw the sun break out from the clouds as it rised above the distant forest, one single beam blinded me as it passed over my head. I turned around to see what I could only describe as this Rod from God was trying to show me, and there it was. The Crusty Loaf bakery. As I looked up and down the shelves my heart began to race with excitement, so much selection of delicious food, and so little time before my stomach became a separate part of my body and completely devoured the entire town, including all the old ladies walking the street. A wonderful and cheerful young lady shot me the question I had been waiting for. " How can I help you today?". I gave her the full details on my adventure and she swifty looked me dead in the eye, and exclaimed "You need to get this cheese toastie, trust me, it will fulfil your life". She exclaimed it as if it was her life duty to sell me this cheese toastie, and god am I glad she did. I cheekily questioned her," I don't suppose you could put the bacon from the breakfast in my toastie to make it so much better". A split second after I queried, she slammed two of the fattest juiciest pieces of bacon into my uncooked cheese toastie, like it was her life duty to do so. Before she put it into the toaster machine like a normal person would do, she pulled out this gigantic pot of butter and majestically smeared it all over BOTH OF THE SIDES. YES YOU READ THAT CORRECTLY, BOTH SIDES. But god, when she pulled out this beast of a toastie out of the grill, oh my god everyone in the store looked at eachother and nodded, they knew they had just changed my life forever. She served me the toastie and I gave her my greatest thanks and payed, then left the store into the car waiting for me outside. I took one bite and it changed my life. The cheese oozed out into my mouth but unlike anything I had had before every single bite had the perfect amount of Onion and Bacon and Cheese every single centimeter in this thing. NOT TO MENTION, the butter had melted into it and crisped up every corner ( its almost like Karen from behind the counter KNEW I love my toast like this). Perfection in every single bite. IT was so incredible I needed someone to try this to understand what I was going through so I donated a few bites to the girl driving the car, and she was converted into a Crustly Loaf Lover. My life has never been the same, these toasties are all I think about when I'm hungry, and i'd like to take this moment to thank every single person that had any sort of contribution to curing my hangover and need for breakfast. I don't give a () where you live, I don't give a () even if you dislike cheese toasties. GET TO THIS SHOP AND BUY ONE STRAIGHT AWAY AND YOU WILL BE CONVERTED, AND AT THE CHEAP PRICE OF ONLY TWO POUNDS, TWO WHOLE POUNDS, you have nothing to lose. It will change your life. I promise. To Summarize, I am not a local of the village but I soon will be.

Fantastic bread, pies, pasties, pastries & cakes. My favourite at the moment is their blackcurrant & almond pies. But why can't they display prices beside their products like all other shops do? For this reason I've given 4 stars instead of a 5.
