Earliest recollections go back to the early 18th Century to my great great grandmother who had a small corner shop typical of that era selling all sorts of consumables and, with the aid of a brick built natural fuel fired oven, use to bake her own bread to retail. This shop then passed down to my great grandmother who continued to bake her own bread.
This picture is actually of 3 generations of the Sexton family, my great grandmother, my grandfather Thomas and my late father, Sydney as a babe in arms. This picture dates back to around 1925.Read More
It was always my fathers ideal to provide a range of bakery and confectionery products second to none and because of this he had the respect of all within the trade. We have been, and always will be, committed to the same ideals and if for any reason you, the customer feel we have not achieved this aim, whether it be product quality or the standard of service we ask you to let us know immediately so we can rectify the problem.
Over the years since 1969 we have steadily invested in the Bakery. Initially it used to surround the retail area, the retail area was only around 15% of the size it is now.

Great little cafe in the middle of the village but, be warned, it is popular at peak-times and during school holidays. Good variety of breakfasts, sandwiches, toasted breads of the panino/ciabatta type, soups, cakes and hot and cold drinks. There’s always a lovely, friendly atmosphere.
“Great Eating, Wonderful Products & Service”
Eating here is always a real pleasure. I’ve never had anything that wasn’t great. Keep up the good work. As far as the bakery products are concerned, not only do they look sumptuous, but they taste really great. My problem is that these wonderful products always result in me spending more than I originally intended. …
