Savoury Pastries

We make meat pies, vegan pasties, sausage rolls and quiches.  All of our pastry is made from home and is palm oil free.  

Pies can be purchased fresh or frozen and if you order in advance we will be happy to pop them in the oven so they are hot when you collect them.

Cakes & Bakes

Whether you are looking for a luscious lemon drizzle cake, mouthwatering mollanaires shortbread or a great big slab of bread pudding you will not be disappointed. We love baking... no really, we LOVE baking and having the Rainbow Shed means that we can bake all day long and know there is never any waste.

Fresh tasty cakes for everyone


There is only one thing better than the smell of fresh bread straight out of the oven and that is a large dob of butter on a piece of fresh bread straight out of the oven.  Luckily we are self disciplined enough to keep our mitts off bread ordered by our customers.  We can make wholemeal or white loaves or rolls.  We also use our home made rolls for our burgers and freshly made filled rolls in the summer.

We love to forage from the sea and from the shore-line.  


Mollans specialising in using seaweed from the beach some 400 meters from our home.  We have a licence from The Crown Estate to forage the seaweeds that we preserve and sell on.


When you visit us here there is a booklet all about what we do and our shoreline. You can also download it from this page and read it on your pc/phone.

Frozen Ready Meals

Our creamy cheesy macaroni cheese is loved by everyone that eats it.  Who doesn't love a traditional dish using Marshalls Macaroni, very strong cheddar and double cream and made with love.  


We also make British Indian Restaurant style curries.  All made from scratch, no pastes or jars used.  The varieties change from time to time but usually include Korma, Passanda, Tikka Masala, Methi and Rezala.  Full portions in the freezer and basmati rice available too.  We have curry nights too on the first Wednesday of the month from May.

Ice Cream

Fruity, boozy, creamy or unique.  Our home made ice creams really hit the spot in any season.  Made using an egg custard and cream base our ice creams are as varied as everything else we do.  Baileys, Tia Maria, blueberry, strawberry & cream, custard, chocolate, rocky road to name but a few.


You really have not tried ice cream until you have tried a Mollans ice cream.
