[AD] Fancy treating yourself to somewhere different for a coffee or a bite to eat this week? How about The Writer’s Block, the new café at Clayesmore School? The gingerbread muffins are *chefs kiss* and I’ve heard tales about Katie’s Pigs in Blankets panini (will need a return visit ASAP to check the truth in the rumours, obviously).
Also – the coffee. SO good. And it’s sourced from local grinders in Sherborne, too.
The squishy sofas and chairs are perfect for a comfy pre-Christmas coffee and cake. But there’s also tables for proper ‘let’s do lunch’ as well as good WiFi if you’re working from home and fancy a change of scene.
They’re proud of the ‘drop dead gorgeous cakes’, the winter warmer soups aren’t to be missed (cream of tomato and basil served with a cheese toastie today), and there’s a Christmas selection of seasonal paninis (not just pigs in blankets – how d’you fancy brie, bacon & cranberry?). And of course there’s mince pies.
And I’ve just spotted that they also happen to have a really nice set of hampers if you’re looking for a quick and easy gift suggestion (https://shop.clayesmore.com/…/christmas-hamper-collection ). The Coffee Lovers Mini Hamper is perfect, with a limited edition Writer’s Block matte black mug for the perfect Sumatra Bourbon Espresso coffee, a little luxury chocolate biscuit oatie on the side and a Writer’s Block travel mug for your coffee on the go.
The Writer’s Block opening times are Monday to Friday 8am to 6pm, and Saturdays 8am to 3.30pm. Closed on Sundays.
Final day before they close for the Christmas holidays is the 16th December, so don’t think about it too long!
