    This was the first time we had tried this. It was amazing. Very rich and gooey. My only criticism is that I ordered it in online, the tart arrived on a gold paper plate, so no protection to the sides of the tart during it’s journey in the post and the sides were all broken. It would travel better if it was baked in a disposable foil tin, so that the sides of the tart were protected in the post. I’d definitely recommend it, it was lovely. Thank you

    Best tart in the world, can’t be beat!
    Sweet, moist, chunky. Pretty incredible to be honest.

    Loved it… will be ordering more

  4. Sylvia Milne (verified owner)

    Delicious! We had a lovely selection of shortbread, clooty dumpling and tarts. Also Selkirk Bannock . All arrived in perfect condition with good “use by” date.

  5. John Morton (verified owner)

  6. Kenneth Sinclair (verified owner)

  8. John Boyes (verified owner)

    Really enjoyable. We order this every Christmas (and sometimes during the year as well!)

  9. Alan Robinson (verified owner)

    Present for friend who acted as impromptu taxi service. It went down exceedingly well, especially with cream. Received two emails about how good it was!

  10. Victor M Hook (verified owner)

    Ordered for a ‘Burn’s Night’ on The Isle of Wight. Second year we have ordered this tart and always very popular. A long use by date of a few weeks. Items came very well packed in a carboard box with ‘straw’ around the cakes. Quick delivery with Royal Mail.

  11. Suzanne Patterson (verified owner)

    Och well made like my mother in law made, yum yum

  12. Robert Coe (verified owner)

    One of the best commercially available Eccelfechain tarts I’ve found. Not 100% as grannies was but close enough. Well done. Also nicely priced and good postal delivery.. The black bun is rather good too.

  13. Henry Haslam (verified owner)

    Much enjoyed by the friend I gave it to

  14. Maggie Smith (verified owner)

    Very fruity and rich. In the UK, versions of these tarts are only readily available at Christmas as an alternative to mince pies but an authentic Ecclefechan Tart is so much more than that. Delicious cold or warm with custard.

  15. Howard Atkins (verified owner)

    Great for a novel present

  16. Rosalind Smith (verified owner)

    The tarts were lovely ! I’ve trying to buy Ecclefechan tarts for ages & now I’ve found somewhere where I buy them!

  17. Colin Downey (verified owner)

    Scrummy. Tart or Bannock ? Both please.

  18. Alan Robinson (verified owner)

    Ordered Ecclefechan tart to be sent to friends as a thank you. They were impressed with the packaging but more so by the tart, ‘every crumb gone’ and they have ordered one to be sent to their son in London, so Ecclefechan tarts are making it south of the border.

  19. Rosemary Crook (verified owner)

    Excellent! Fruity, spicy and delicious

  20. Gillian Macfarlane (verified owner)

    Wonderful. Much appreciated by the person for whom it was a present.

  21. David Mar (verified owner)

  22. Jane West (verified owner)

    First class in every way thank you

  23. Lorna Wheeler (verified owner)

    What a wonderful experience! Delicious crisp buttery pastry and flavoursome fruity nutty filling. Good balance of filling to pastry with natural sweetness . A treat we look forward to enjoying in the future .

  24. Stefania Gooderham (verified owner)

  31. Robert Carse (verified owner)

    Lovely and juicy plenty of fruit. Pastry just right not too thick .

  32. James Carrick (verified owner)

    The Dalgetty Ecclefechan Tart is the real thing and living south of the border, the on-line shop is wonderful for getting special treats for friends and family. The Ecclefechan Tart tops the list.

  33. Carole Watts (verified owner)

    So good that I only managed to get one slice of it, because my husband, not a great fan of sweet food, loved it so much.

  34. Peter Hynd (verified owner)

    Very Nice

  35. Christine Galbraith (verified owner)

    The best Ecclefechan Tart ever-it’s packed with raisins and that yummy buttery sweetness-brilliant with a cup of tea or coffee!

  36. CJK (verified owner)

    Absolutely delicious. One of the best Ecclefechan Tarts I’ve ever had. Also sent one halfway across the global for a special treat. The only downside was they wished I had sent more. Soooo good!

  37. Ceri Worthington (verified owner)

    Really rich, sweet and tasty, a great hit with my work colleagues. Will definitely buy it again

  38. John Thompson (verified owner)

    Everyone tried it and they all said how much they enjoyed it.
    Keep up the good work.

  39. Irene Bemister (verified owner)

    I bought this for an 80 year old friend I was told it was very light and Delicious on the palate

  40. Alastair McClelland (verified owner)

    My mum ised to make a similar cake when I was young, so this brought back great memories. Well baked and very tasty.

  41. Maureen-Ann Simms (verified owner)

    this was part of my Christmas order I am sure it will be lovely as always. Thank you very much

  42. Robert B (verified owner)

    Ecclefechan Tart is both excellent and of the same standard as on previous occasions. The price has increased 13% from £3.50 last year to £3.95 this year and the diameter of the tart diameter seems to be reduced. At this rate of inflation the tart may price itself out of the market. The Border Tart tastes too much of coconut for me and I shall not be buying this again.

  43. Katty (verified owner)

    Not as compact as some of the other varieties I have brought it had a much more loose consistency, and the pastry was much softer too

  44. Richard Beckett Beckett (verified owner)

    Not sure ecclefechan tart is quite up to the standard of previous orders

  45. Jennifer Clarke (verified owner)

    This is one delicious tart, quite “rich” but beautiful!

  46. Richard Garton (verified owner)

    The tart was very tasty and nicely moist, it was a shame that I had to wait over a week for it to be delivered. The poor delivery meant I had to buy cakes and tarts from a local baker to use….very disappointed with the poor customer service.

  47. Christine Lancefield (verified owner)

    Title says it all – this tart is delicious.

  48. Linda Simpson (verified owner)

    That was the verdict of my Son and his family on the Ecclefechan tart and Selkirk Bannock and my youngest Grandaughter’s attempt at pronouncing Ecclefechan. Prompt service and delicious products -keep up the good work.

  49. Colin Clark (verified owner)

    It was finding this rcclefechan tart in a motorway services that prompted me to search online for this store. The tarts are about half the price at the services and it’s cheaper having them delivered than driving 120 miles to buy them. Wonderfully moist and fruity although the crust is quite crumbly. Will buy again when I hope the first parcel won’t go astray like it did this time

  50. Pearlioz (verified owner)

    It was magnificent, the best tart I have had. As you can see I am a great fan as is the rest of my family. The problem I find is actually getting a slice before the rest of the gannets devour it.

  51. Judith Wright (verified owner)

    I had visitors on the day the tart arrived and they ate every crumb,but they did tell me it was absolutely delicious,so I will try it again.
    And your cherry cake is the best cherry cake ever.
