On September 1st, The Hambleton Bakery on Cottesmore Road, Exton sprung into life. Our little shop at one end of the Bakery has surpassed all of our expectations, serving some 300 customers on it’s best day so far.
Traditional bread, made slowly with top quality English or French stone ground flour, makes up a significant part of our output. Clients who prefer to live dangerously have also been buying prodigious quantities of our fruit loaves and handmade muffins.
We have a small outlet in the Park Bar at Hart’s, Nottingham and most products are also available at Hambleton Farm Fine Foods, our top local butcher in Gaol Street, Oakham.
We have taken the revolutionary step of replacing croissants and pains au chocolat for the Hambleton breakfast table with toasted muffins, manchet (a traditional English breakfast roll) and toast made from our various breads.
Julian Carter who heads the bakery operation has shown around an enormous number of interested parties since the launch and if you have not yet visited, I know he would love to show you his 60 year old, super gentle, Artofex mixer and his magnificent wood fired oven.
The Bakery is situated approximately 10 minutes drive from the hotel on the road that links the A606 and Cottesmore.
