The Firmdale Bakery
Firmdale Hotels are proud to introduce our new team of expert bakers. Executive Head Chef, Robin Read and his talented team are continually producing new ideas for extraordinary pastries, sourdough breads and cakes.
We pride ourselves on using British ingredients which we source as locally as possible, so that our bakery can produce the best selection of breads and pastries.
Our suppliers are everything to us; all of the flour we use at the bakery is sourced from Shipton Mill, set in a beautiful Cotswold valley near Tetbury. This mill has been producing organic flour since the time of the Domesday Book, using both traditional grain and traditional methods. The grain ground at Shipton Mill provides flours that are unsurpassed in texture and flavour and have built a well-earned reputation among professional, artisan and home-bakers.
