A quiet tucked away tea-garden at the Old Bakery

The licensed Old Bakery is a welcoming and relaxing place to enjoy homemade cakes with teas and coffees or a delicious light lunch with a glass of wine or beer. The Old Bakery displays some if its baking equipment and through scrapbooks and photographs tells of his baking past. Look out for the old wood-fire bread oven on the ground floor thought to be one of the oldest in the country.

The Old Bakery

Situated in the village of Branscombe in a wooded valley, the Old Bakery is a stone built and partially rendered thatched building.

Under the thatched eaves of this former traditional bakery, you'll discover the old bread oven and proving trough. A colllection of tins, dishes and measuring scales used by the last bakers are displayed in the rooms. Scrapbooks and old photographs tell the story of the Collier Brothers, the bakers, and the simple process of of how bread was made here.

If the weather is fair the pretty cottage garden is the perfect place to while away an hour or two in a picturesque setting overlooking the orchard. If the skies are dull and overcast you can head inside and find a seat in the cosy interior.
