Meet Our Skilled Patissier!
Xavier Pelloux’s enthusiasm for his craft shines through as we caught up with him to discuss the delights of his pâtisserie for our short film. Hailing from Geneva, Xavier perfected his craft as a pastry chef and chocolatier in Switzerland before moving to the UK to work in some of the country’s top restaurants.
We began working with Xavier and his talented team in 2015 as we opened our southern sister business, Gloucester Services Southbound.
Based in Cheltenham, Xavier was instrumental in the development of the motorway’s first pâtisserie counter. Thanks to the success of Xavier’s creations, including his salted caramel tart, eclairs and his scrumptious macarons; we have since been able to open a counter stocking Xavier’s handmade treats at Gloucester Services Northbound and finally here in Cumbria! You can now find Pâtisserie Box in Tebay Services and Rheged Filling Station.

We hope you're not too hungry!
