Tuck into delicious cheese and chive quiche, classic sausage rolls, Scotch eggs, sausage rolls filled with cheese and pickle, a selection of cakes and fruit scones topped with jam and cream.

You can choose from many regions from Scotland, East Midlands, South East England to Northern Ireland, The Midlands and London. 

We are from Norfolk so the East of England is the most local area to us with four locations to choose from; Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge, St Albans and Watford. I really like the idea of getting a gift card for an adventure that is only a train ride away.
