Buxton Pudding Emporium

While Bakewell is renowned for its tart, Buxton is steadily gaining recognition in the realm of baked goods with its delectable pudding. This gooey and sticky delight is based on a revived 200-year-old recipe that combines custard, pastry, and jam. It made its mark in history when it was served at a dinner hosted for the Mayor of Derby in 1868, alongside Mock Turtle Soup and Tipsy Cake. Today, if you want to experience a slice of this culinary treasure yourself, the ultimate destination is the Buxton Pudding Emporium. Here, you can indulge in the Original Buxton Pudding, as well as a variety of other handmade cakes, puddings, and desserts.

You have the option to sit and savor your treat in the Tasting Rooms, or we recommend taking your portion to enjoy on the lawns of the Pavilion Gardens located just outside. Despite its name, the Emporium is more than just a place to indulge in cake. It is a veritable treasure trove of artisanal products, boasting a wide range of items on its shelves. From Abernethy Butter and black garlic ketchup to pickled samphire and Sheffield Honey, you’ll find an array of enticing offerings. Additionally, if you’re in search of a gift, the Emporium offers themed hampers for your perusal.

This food lover’s paradise is tucked within one of the charming arches at the base of The Square, an impressive Grade II listed Victorian building situated in the heart of the town, just a short distance from The Crescent. It shares its vicinity with No. 6 The Square tearooms, where a generous Afternoon Tea is served. However, we advise against attempting to visit both establishments in a single day—it might be a bit overwhelming for the taste buds!
