We came across the Plum Duff & Stuff stall at the Bath Christmas market and decided to treat ourselves to a Christmas pudding. Turned out to be the best Xmas pud we have ever had! It was really moist but not stodgy and we loved the fact it contained sustainable palm oil too.
We will definitely be back for more this year! Xmas won’t be the same without one of these from now on.
See you in Dec Wizz!

The vegan pudding was absolutely delicious, thank you. Omnivores,
vegetarians and vegans all loved it!

Carrie, Chippenham, Wiltshire – January 2019

We just wanted to say that we’re thrilled that we bought a gluten free, dairy free pudding from you at Crowcombe for the first time and, with all our multiple allergy family here at Christmas, it was a huge success and really delicious and extremely popular. So a big thank you and well done.
We’ll be back next year!

John & Sarah, Taunton, Somerset – December 2018

The vegan gluten free pudding was excellent. We loved every bite! Thank you so much.

Just wanted to drop you a quick email to say I bought one of your Traditional Christmas Pud at Hestercombe House Christmas Market. Myself & my family agree it was the best Christmas Pud we have tasted. Absolutely delicious, thank you!

Jenny cooked up an amazing meal and to top it off served one of your Plum Duffs. Wow!! I haven’t had Christmas pudding since I moved here from England over 35 years ago. And I didn’t like it much in the first place. But yours was absolutely amazing, and for someone who’s not that into desserts, I was a member of the clean-plate-club!
I just wanted to drop you a line and congratulate you on a magnificent creation and I have to figure out a way to make sure I get one for next Christmas. And then I just noticed that you make marmalade and I can only guess how good that is. So on my next visit to England I may well seek you out for some marmalade!

Yet again, a really delicious pudding very much enjoyed by all, including my ma-in-law who reckoned not to like Christmas pudding until she tried yours!

Barry Seward-Thompson, Swansea – 27th December 2017

I purchased one of your gluten free puddings to have at Christmas with a great friend who is gluten free. It was absolutely delicious! She is a huge Christmas pudding connoisseur and she couldn’t tell it was gluten free. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. It was also her dream to find a pudding wrapped in calico, as no one does it properly these days and the fabric is usually just for show

Susy C, London – 27th December 2017

Hi – we bought one of your christmas puddings at the Bath Christmas markets and just wanted to let you know that its one of the best we’ve ever had, including many home-made ones! Absolutely delicious

During a stay in Bath Christmas 2016 my husband and I stumbled across a small cabin selling Christmas puddings, wow, what a find, it has got to be the best Christmas puddings my family has ever tasted. nothing compared to this totally traditional Christmas pudding

Wendy Eales, Newquay, Cornwall – 2017

We would like to thank you for your support in making our First Christmas Day meal here at Clough Manor a resounding success.
We catered for 128 guests and many of them ordered your supreme Christmas Puddings for desert, which were light years better than the original version we were going to use. From the look of the empty plates that were collected from the tables, the guests definitely enjoyed them as we expected. We will definitely be ordering them again from you.
Once again we thank you and wish you all the best.
The team at Clough Manor would like to wish you all a Prosperous 2016.

I just wanted to write and say how truly delicious the gluten free Christmas pudding I bought from you in 2014 was. I only ate it in January of this year, 2016. My mum made excellent traditional puddings, [with gluten] and I have to say it matched hers, which is the highest praise I can give! It was so good that I was even able to eat some cold the next day as if it were fruit cake. Thank you! Wishing your company much success in the future.

The final new product we have for you is a slight break with the usual morsels we offer.
Last year after much searching I found a truly magnificent traditional Christmas pudding being made in a village underneath the Quantock Hills of Somerset. Wizz is the name of the lady who makes them to her great, great grandmother’s original c.1840s “Plum Pudding” adapted recipe. I stocked and sampled them in the shop and the reaction was extraordinary. We sold literally hundreds of them and people are already ordering them for this year.
They come in a real calico wrapping that you simply steam or microwave them in, filling your kitchen with that wonderful smell of Christmas. This year we are only having one size by mail order and if you enjoy them we will offer more next year.

Brown & Forrest – The Smokery – November 2006

AMAZING!!! We had the pudding last night as you may have gathered from the phone call and message yesterday. It was the BEST we have ever had – we used to have Fortnum and Masons and have tried Mosimanns as well as Marks and Spencer and last year the Carved Angel. None of them were anywhere near yours. Thank you very much. I look forward to next year!

Ruth – Christmas 2007

My wife is both Gluten & Dairy intolerant. I bought one of your Gluten free puddings & we ate it today. It was perfect, both light & fruity, I will never bother trying to make my own again. Thank you Thank you, Put me on your mailing list.

Gerry Cooper – Christmas 2011

Oh dear! The lovely pudding I bought at the Port Regis fair has not survived until Christmas!! It got eaten last night at a dinner party, was so delicious I need to buy another ( or 2 )

Vickie Mackintosh – November 2012

Happy New Year to all of you at Plum duff and stuff. I met you at Hestercombe Christmas Market and bought from you 2 x 2lb Gluten Free Christmas Puddings. Well! We are still astounded at the flavour, texture and pure deliciousness of your puddings and can’t wait for next year. I gave one to my son who also has gluten problems and he rang me especially to say how fantastic it was and had never tasted anything so wonderful, never having been a Christmas pudding fan before. To which I could only agree with pleasure(and relief) at the success. Fantastic!

Clare Bourke-Jones – January 2014

Good Morning, My daughter bought for us one of your amazing Christmas puddings from Cotehele Christmas Fair. I just cannot give you enough compliments, it was truly amazing. The texture and the balance of ingredients were absolutely perfect. Nothing was heavy and stodgy like so many puddings we’ve had. I just can’t wait for next Christmas to have another one of yours.
