      Hi Suzi – we’ve spoken to the guys in the bakery and they’ve said we don’t add water! We don’t know where that ingredient came from – so sorry to confuse you! We hope you enjoy making the scones!

    O.K. it’s 1am and all I’m craving is the wonderful cheese scones that we had in your cafe when we visited the factory nearly five years ago!! And then came a further three times, while staying in the area, just to have your cheese scones. They were delicious.
    What a blessing to find the recipe for them on your web site. Thank you so much for publishing it. Definitely making them in the morning.
    Even without lockdown, driving up from Dorset is a long way to come for your cheese scones but they’re worth it.
