Our world-class patisserie, which is run by expert pastry chef Marco Pilloni, is located in a lovingly restored former Blacksmiths forge attached to our main building.
Buy delicious items to take home, order bigger special occasion cakes or just come for a relaxing coffee or tea and eat your chosen pastry in the comfy chairs in the bar area of our restaurant. It’s a great way to start the day or to catch up with friends, family and colleagues.
You can also pre-order larger bespoke cakes for birthdays, family gatherings, weddings and Christmas and New Year get togethers or parties. We can even make traditional Christmas yule logs. Prices for special occasion and larger cakes start from £25.
Marco previously worked as Head Pastry Chef at the Michelin-starred Club Gascon in London and creates everything from artisan breads through to brioches and doughnuts, and on to macaroons and mousses.

During his time at the ROH, he even cooked for Her Royal Highness, The Queen.
