SIMPLE, MADE EXCEPTIONAL
We love to turn everyday favourites into spectacular delicacies and our recipes have been tweaked and trialled over time until they’re absolutely perfect. We have a few signature creations and they’re all simple classics, done exceptionally well.
Seemingly straightforward, our sausage roll is actually deceptively intricate. We use the finest quality free-range pork, add a touch of sweetness with fresh apple, season with our secret blend of spices and wrap in rich, flaky, made-from-scratch puff pastry. It’s as intensely satisfying to make as it is to eat.

Good, honest bread
Made with the simplest of ingredients, bread is one of the most ancient and humble foods, but the process of making it is quite complex.
Perfectly balancing the resting temperature, flour attributes, moisture content, tension, handling and baking makes breadmaking a special kind of alchemy and we rise to the challenge at 4am, six days a week.
All of our loaves are naturally made using premium quality unbleached flour and a slow fermentation process, without any additives or improvers. The result is an easy to digest, delicious, fragrant bread with a good crust, great structure and a rich, deeply developed flavour.
