overlooking nearby Bodiam Castle, all of the bakery’s bread is made using traditional methods with each loaf hand-moulded, and long fermentation times used to develop the full flavour of the dough.  no artificial enhancers or chemical improvers are used.

much of our fruit and veg is delivered personally by rye fruiterer and local character, Brett Johnson, from his shop just down the road.  it is mainly grown in local gardens and farms.
