New Summer Salads


With the sun beating down on London, it was hard for us not to get excited about creating some fresh new dishes to go with the warmer, drier weather. Cue our new summer salads, all of which have been inspired by seasonal ingredients and lots of vegetables.

Pop in and try a trout, pea and miso salad, with kiln-roasted trout from Scottish fishery R.R. Spink and Sons, or roasted almond chicken, soba noodles and greens with lime juice and sesame oil.



We’re looking for people to join our family! If you’re a great leader, have a love for food and a warm heart, you’ll fit in perfectly. We have positions available for assistant managers and shift leaders. We offer great training, but experience in a previous leadership role is essential.

Please look on our jobs page and get in touch with Tas for more information and to apply.

We love our craft so much that we’ve put it into words. We’re excited that we’ve written our first cookbook and to share our passion with whoever would like to read it.

The book’s story follows morning bakes through to after dinner puddings. Some might say it’s more or less a day in the life of a bakery. Our cookbook isn’t about following a recipe for the perfect loaf or cake, it’s about unleashing the creativity within each of us as a home baker, in the comfort of our own homes and in the company of good friends and family.

If you pick up a copy, we hope it brings out the inner creator in you. Of course, if you want any tips or tricks, give us a shout at

After a couple of years of experimental baking, we’ve added some exciting new additions to our family.

Pop in to Queens Park for a taste of some cracking new toasties and baked sandwiches, breakfast (until 3pm each day) and cream buns. We’ve also had a go at our version of afternoon tea.
