All Mine Cakes


New cafe at Maythorne - Maythorne Lane (narrow), off Upper Kirklington Road, just outside Southwell. Was an old fishing lodge by lake, has been extensively renovated, plenty of seating inside and out, great position overlooking lake. The proprietor has won awards for her cakes - and very good they are too, though pricey at £3.95 a piece. 200 degree coffee, so good fresh coffee, again pricey at £3.10 for flat white and £2.55 for americano. There are not serving breakfasts yet but are planning to with a more extensive menus of snacks etc. At present open Thursday to Sunday but will be also opening Wednesdays soon.

whoops - Maythorne Lane off Lower Kirklington Road

Oct 15, 2018

We finally got around to going to this café, albeit in the car, as it was raining yesterday. All the cakes are gluten-free which is why they are a bit pricey, as the ingredients cost more. They have also started trialling bacon, sausage and egg cobs, but these are an eye-watering £6.50 each, more than twice the price of the Kingfisher café that we go to on Saturdays.


The café isn't that big and it was full yesterday. There is some outside seating if the weather was OK. George Minion's daughter Tracy is the manager. It's probably not suitable for a club ride but OK for a smaller group.

Still high prices - perhaps trying to recoup some of the building renovation costs as well!

Paul and I visited Newark (in the rain Friday!) and called at the Artisan Cafe (Chain Lane - so not accessible for a group of bikes), everything was gluten free and/or dairy free, prices were very reasonable £1-95 for cake, flapjacks etc. Not that we are gluten averse - just so happened they had the best selection of nibbles and reasonable priced coffee to boot.

Lew, Tom and I went today. I thought it was excellent , true a bit pricey but they welcome cyclists! I'll be returning.

    Managed to visit this place today, another regular of Phil‘s Wednesday group. It’s a great setting, right in the centre of the village and easily approached by country lanes, without having to go on any main roads. We came down through Ragdale and Hoby. There’s plenty of room, with seating for probably 30 people in total. Bikes can be parked in the outside area at the back of the building. It’s not the cheapest place, but they have good quality ingredients including Hambleton Bakery bread, and it’s no more expensive than lots of other places. I’m not sure how they would cope with a big group, as they were a little slow serving us with our food, and it wasn’t busy, but overall a thumbs up from us.

    Me and Sue visited Leadenham Teahouse last week. It’s not very big, seating for probably 14 inside and it was a quite busy when we went and we had to briefly wait for a table. So not really suitable for a group ride at this time of year. There are some outside tables so it would probably be OK for a group in the summer. Not the cheapest, but a decent selection of cakes and they do 200 degrees coffee. It’s near the traffic light junction in the village - and in the same building as the Post Office, so just look out for the Post Office sign. We approached from Fulbeck, but made the mistake of dropping down onto the A17 on the way back, though only for about a mile to Stragglethorpe crossroads. You can avoid it by either heading back to Fulbeck and taking the minor road that runs parallel to the A17 towards Stragglethorpe, or head north to Welbourn then drop down to Brant Broughton and then to either Stragglethorpe crossroads or Beckingham to cross the A17.

    I went there today with the CTC and there’s a notice up to say that the cafe will close at the end of October. it seems the current tenants no longer wish to carry on.
