Border Tart

(22 Customer Reviews)

Border Tart

A wondrous delight of crumbly pastry filled with a beautifully moist coconut and almond sponge which is lightly fruited with sultanas and cherries and finished with a sprinkling of sugar.

Our handmade Border Tart is immediately recognised as the most authentic, and rightly so.

    I bought this as a present so not tried yet, looks good though. Thanks for prompt delivery of this and the Bannocks.

    Tasted great best we’ve had in a long time. Have been trying to find somewhere fore years to make border tart like my granny did but up till now we’d had no luck but now we can buy it with confidence my 91 yr old mother loved it she said it was like being at home on a Sunday afternoon. I’m presuming she means this is when her mother baked.

    I’m sorry but a little disappointing. I bought the Border Tart for my father who is 91. He is from Hawick and has very fond memories of your shops both in Gala and Melrose. He has very frequently spoken of Border Tarts. Sadly the recipe you use now isn’t the one he remembers so he was very disappointed. He remembers it being a custard filling with dried fruit such as sultanas packed through it and the tart topped with a cake like mixture. I’m sure your tart was perfectly nice but it was a disappointment to my father.

    Excellent service and good quality products. We are returning customers and have also visited the shop whilst on holiday.

    This was for a birthday surprise which went down very well with the recipient – thank you – it was not the usual 65th gift

  14. Gillian Macfarlane (verified owner)

    Delicious! The person who received this as a present enjoyed it very much.

  15. Lorna Wheeler (verified owner)

    Deliciously tasty. Texture of pastry and filling really enjoyable too with its finely mixed nuts and delicious chunks of fruit including glacé cherries. Natural mellow sweetness further enhances enjoyment . A revelation ! We will certainly be purchasing more in future .

  16. Linda Ling (verified owner)

    a bit dry, not quite as tasty as I had hoped.

  17. PATRICIA WEIGHILL (verified owner)

    Great taste and texture, reminiscent but different from Bakewell. Will buy again.

  18. Matt Wilson (verified owner)

    I ordered a Border Tart, Selkirk bannock and shortbread to be sent to a family in Yorkshire. I am told everything tasted “wonderful”

  20. Phil Ferris (verified owner)
