Bringing Craft Baking to Altrincham
Established in 1860, the new bakery opening on Tuesday 28th November in Altrincham, Greater Manchester will bring the total number of Warrens Bakery stores outside of Devon and Cornwall to 11. With a rich heritage and an array of award-winning sweet and savoury bakes; the team have had a busy year of openings, launching the first store outside of the Westcountry in Birmingham in February.
Tipped as one of the top three British craft bakeries in the British Industry Awards 2017, we are bringing over 150 years of experience and a whole host of award-winning sweet and savoury ranges to the area, including the iconic selection of signature hand-crimped Cornish pasties.
Recognised at the world’s oldest Cornish pasty maker, we put a firm focus on provenance and generations of bakers have passed down craft bakery techniques and traditions which have led to a series of accolades and prestigious awards. As ‘Great British Bake Off’ returned to our screens for the eighth year running this September, the love of British craft bakery continues to grow and Altrincham is getting involved.
The new bakery on Cross Street opens in the same months as the first ever Warrens Bakery to arrive in London. To celebrate, Cornwall’s oldest bakery and the world’s oldest Cornish pasty maker has partnered with young baker and recipe writer Martha Collison to uncover the craft of British baking. The youngest ever contestant on the Great British Bake Off, Martha has a deep-rooted heritage in the South West and is working with our team to highlight the importance of British baking, why holding onto it is so important and to celebrate the best of traditional British baking arriving to the capital.
Commenting on the completion of the new store, local family businessman Simon Vardy who is working in partnership with our team, said “We are so excited to bring our local community a breakfast and lunch offer that is baked fresh in store each day and look forward to re-igniting our town’s passion for having a truly British bakery in their high-street.”
Our Chairman, Mark Sullivan commented – “It is an exciting step for us to be able to bring the 156-year-old heritage and the traditional tried and tested recipes of Warrens Bakery to the market town of Altrincham, our furthest northern store to date. As the love of British craft baking continues to grow, plans to open more stores in the area are already in the pipeline and set to create up to 200 job opportunities for local residents. The opening will mean Altrincham residents won’t have to travel far to pick up a hand-crimped taste of the iconic pasties, so often enjoyed during holidays by the coast and we can’t wait to hear what new customers think of our new range of recently launched bakes.”
The brand-new range includes an array of autumnal traybakes, delicious Roast Pasties and the latest gluten-free pasties. Drop into the new bakery to pick up a traditional slice of British baking at its best.
