West Cornwall Pasty Co is branching out from hot savouries and will be offering cream teas this summer.

The UK pasty chain is to launch traditional Cornish Cream Teas in its eat-in restaurant outlets. It will consist of a scone, an 8oz pot of Cornish clotted cream, strawberry jam and a pot of tea.

“We are extremely proud of our Cornish roots and have been looking at expanding our ange of traditional Cornish products, as there is a clear demand for them from our customers,” commented Richard Nieto, chief executive for the firm.

West Cornwall Pasty Co is the biggest food-to-go pasty retailer in the UK, with 57 stores, and is the 19th biggest bakery retailer on store numbers in the country, according to British Baker’s annual league table of bakery retailers.
