Sherwood bakery’s award-winning bread to be rolled out across Notts


Bread lovers in Notts will soon be able to get their teeth into the world’s best bread after a popular bakery in Sherwood announced plans to roll out their award winning products across the county

The Bakehouse, owned by Michelin-trained chef Craig Poynter and his wife Rosea, will now provide bread for a number of restaurants, cafes and delis across Nottingham, including Bar Iberico, Dino’s, Pudding Pantry, Junkyard, the Herbert Kilpin, Homeboys, Speciality Coffee and Nottingham Coffee Club.

Outside the city centre, the Bakehouse is also supplying Derby Road’s Toast and Deli-licious on Mapperley Top, with The Ruddington Arms and The Railway in Lowdham to start taking deliveries in the coming weeks.

Having opened its doors in November 2016, the Bakehouse has quickly outgrown its shop premises on Mansfield Road, and moved some production of its artisan loaves to a purpose-built unit from which the new wholesale operation is based.

The new facility currently sees the Bakehouse’s bakers produce 1,400  handmade loaves, from scratch, each week – a figure which will rise in line with the business’ wholesale expansion plans.

Craig said: “I am passionate about creating outstanding bread, using traditional methods and the highest quality ingredients. This new facility and wholesale supply arm enables our bakers to do just that, for more people than ever before.

“We outgrew our original premises in under a year from launch, and having seen such development of the shop and eatery side of the business, we have significant expansion plans for the wholesale offer throughout 2018.

“Securing contracts for discerning venues such as Bar Iberico on our launch demonstrates the quality of our wholesale offer, and we look forward to diners across the city enjoying our award-winning bread.”

Jacque Ferreria, executive chef and co-owner at Bar Iberico said: “We are pleased to be working with The Bakehouse as our new bread partner. The bakery is renowned for delivering the very best in artisan bread, and its produce will be the perfect complement to our authentic, taste-driven tapas dishes.”

The Bakehouse, an artisan bakery, café and micropub based on Mansfield Road in Sherwood, launched in November 2016. Its first year saw it secure a number of regional and national accolades, including gongs at the Great Taste and World Bread awards.
