Tavistock Flapjackery Shop
We opened our first Flapjackery shop in March 2019 in our wonderful historic home town of Tavistock to show case our flapjack flavours, try out new ideas and introduce our new range of “handmade by us” goodies to our great customers. These include our handmade fudges such as our clotted cream fudge oozing with delicious Westcountry cream and topped off with a drizzling of Belgian white chocolate, a range of luxurious fresh cream truffles for you to pick and mix, bags of golden crunchy honeycomb – with or without chocolate, citrus slices dipped in dark chocolate, Dartmoor sheep with red hats and of course our gluten free oats for the porridge eaters, to name a few things.
Our seasonal items include four sizes of hampers – made by us or for you to choose your own fillings, handmade chocolate items and of course our seasonal flapjack flavours in or out of presentation boxes – gift wrapped if you want (small charge).
Orders can of course be collected from the shop to save on carriage costs, please call ahead to check availability if you are after something special.

Tavistock, Ancient Stannary and Market Town
Tavistock is nestled in South West England on the edge of Dartmoor, bursting with independent shops and the famous pannier market. Its situated on the River Tavy, from which its name derives and can trace its recorded history back to at least 961 when Tavistock Abbey was founded.
In 1105 a Royal Charter was granted by Henry I to the monks of Tavistock to run a weekly “Pannier Market” (so called after the baskets used to carry goods) on a Friday, which still takes place today. In 1116 a three-day fair was also granted to mark the feast of Saint Rumon, another tradition that is still maintained in the shape of the annual “Goosey” fair on the second Wednesday in October.
In 1305, with the growing importance of the area as one of Europe’s richest sources of tin, Tavistock was one of the four stannary towns appointed by charter of Edward I, where tin was stamped and weighed and monthly courts were held for the regulation of mining affairs.
Sir Francis Drake is our most famous resident, born at Crowndale Farm in Tavistock, a champion of Queen Elizabeth, the first Englishman to circumnavigate the world, and one of the English commanders in the famously decisive victory against the Spanish Armada in 1588.

This summer Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall visited Tavistock as part of three-day visit to Devon and Cornwall. Owners Carol and Sally were lucky enough to meet the royal couple who chose to stop at Flapjackery and select 3 flavours of our handmade flapjacks, now available as the “Royal Box” from our online shop!
