Bake House devon
Last year we interviewed Ben Holt-Wilson who owns and runs The Bake House in our blog Salcombe’s Best Baker. During the interview he made the point that change was on the horizon for the business and boy was he right!

The Bake House (nee The Upper Crust) has been through very exciting changes through the last year or so. First came the renaming and rebranding of The Upper Crust to The Bake House and a very smart new shopfront in Salcombe ensued.

Next came the opening of The Uptown Bakehouse situated beside the garage on the road into Salcombe. It is perfect for those living or holidaying in the upper parts of Salcombe and commuters coming into town for work.

Next on the scene has been their new premises on Fore Street Kingsbridge – The Bake House Kingsbridge. Nicola Barlow from Cottage Kitchen has taken over the mantle of the cake department which is excellent news because she is uber talented and was a regional finalist in last years ITV Britain’s Best Bakery!

And now the baking premises have relocated from Salcombe to the South Hams Business Park in Churchstow to deal with the demands of wholesale accounts and their own retail outlets. The photos in this article are all taken in the new facilities and with this new expansion the daily production capacity is simply awesome! Take some of the classics. In one overnight session their new premises will churn out:

500 croissants, 300 cheese straws, 500 doughnuts and 1000 pasties!

To celebrate this new baking location, on Good Friday at 11am Betty Bettesworth (a very talented local painter who has created imagery for The Bake House) will be re-opening the newly refurbished Salcombe Bake House (now also selling delicious salads, sandwiches and deeply filled baguettes). AND there will be freshly baked goodies to taste which we are very excited about indeed! Come and join in this Good Friday.
