Christmas is always a special time at the Bakery, it is lovely to welcome all our friends to join in the celebrations and preparations for the big day. We of course will be making beautiful Christmas cakes, mince pies, our Brioche Advent rings as well as delicious puddings to help your family celebrations.

The bakery will be open on Christmas Eve although not the Tea Rooms because that is where we pack the numerous Christmas orders ready to collect from 11.00. The bakers will bake through the night so we can help make your Christmas special.

As well as the baked goods we make we have in stock plenty of other treats to help the festive season from cheeses, pickles, chutneys which are great to have in the store cupboard at home but also make lovely gifts. We all know plenty of people who have pretty much everything they need but foodie gifts are very well received so we will be making Christmas hampers for those difficult to buy for friends and relations.

During December we are preparing ‘Christmas’ Afternoon teas if you would like to get together with friends before the big day. Please book well in advance! You can also give Afternoon Tea vouchers which can be used at anytime during the year.

Another ever popular gift idea are vouchers for our bakery courses which take place on various dates throughout the year. There are courses suitable for those who have never made bread before and the Master Class is more suited to home bakers with some experience.

Opening Times in December

We are open as usual Tuesday – Saturday from 8.00 until 4.00pm and Sundays from 10.00 – 4.00pm. We will also open on all Mondays in December. We are of course open on Christmas Eve but would strongly urge you to pre order your breads by the 21st December due to the volume we need to make for orders. The Tea Room will be closed on Christmas Eve.
