When Shaun & Christina Bryant took over the bakery in October 2011, the whole of Broughton held their breath. The previous owners, Lara and Darren, had made such a good job of running the bakery and cafe that it quickly became a tourist and local favourite. Broughton is a small town and each business is important to the welfare of the local economy so when we learnt that they were novices at the game, well, there were a lot of raised eyebrows.
We needn’t have worried.
They have just appeared in ITV’s “Britain’s Best Bakery” winning both the Lake District and the Northern Regional final. How fantastic is that?
What’s more, it is open at 9am every day except Monday so you can walk down Church Street and have a lovely coffee and croissant for breakfast …
My personal favourite to take home is their Cheese and Herb Plait – great toasted then spread with butter and Marmite.
