In London
- The Swedish cardamom buns and cinnamon buns at Fabrique are incredible (I carried 6 cardamom buns on the plane home with me). Their bread also looked great, but I didn’t get a chance to try any.

Bertinet in Bath is well regarded. They have expanded their brand and sell bread in supermarkets across the country but they have a shop in Bath still.

Hufflins. A Cotswold company (Burford) originally but have expanded.

Now have locations in


  • Burford
  • Cheltenham High Street
  • Cheltenham Promenade
  • Kingston upon Thames
  • Moreton in Marsh
  • Oxford Street
  • Stow on the Wold
  • Stratford
  • Witney

Stratford-Upon-Avon is in Red Lion Court in Bridge Street

Oxford Street is in London, the main shopping street in London. It in in the flagship John Lewis department store near Oxford Circus.

At any Huffkins, be very sure to check out the Beesting. Yum. In fact everything of theirs is yum.
