Warrens Bakery Opens at Basingstoke Train Station

Bringing Cornish Delights to Your Train Travels

Greetings, pastry enthusiasts and commuters! We at Warrens Bakery are thrilled to announce the grand opening of our latest store at Basingstoke train station, marking a significant milestone in our journey East. Our 39th location is officially open, and we’re excited to share our freshly baked goods with the bustling crowd of Basingstoke’s main concourse.

A Warm Welcome to Basingstoke
On May 10th, we celebrated the opening of Warrens Bakery Basingstoke with a ribbon-cutting ceremony led by Katie Anderson, our Head of Travel, and Alison Finch, the Station Manager. The store’s strategic location at the heart of the busy train station means that the enticing aroma of our freshly baked pasties, pastries, and sweet treats will greet commuters and travellers every day.

Expanding Our Horizons in the Travel Sector
Building on the success of our recent launch at Bath Spa train station, the Basingstoke store represents the next step in our expansion within the travel sector. As the oldest Cornish pasty maker in the world, established in 1860, we are eager to bring our rich heritage and beloved baked goods to even more people across the UK.

Paul Denham, our Retail Director, shared his enthusiasm:

“We’re thrilled to have officially opened our newest bakery in Basingstoke railway station, which has seen the creation of six jobs for local people. Our expansion into Basingstoke marks another step in Warrens Bakery’s journey in the travel sector as we continue to push further East and share our traditional and innovative baked goods and beverages with new customers. Our existing stores in the travel sector are thriving and we anticipate similar success in Basingstoke.”

“We’re delighted to welcome Warrens Bakery to Basingstoke, a key location on our network, as it opens its furthest store away from its Cornish roots. We’re sure that both customers and passers-by will take the opportunity to enjoy the wide variety of food and drinks available, especially their authentic Cornish pasties.
