Born on a farm in Easington Mary started work developing her skills at a local bakery in Blackhall Co Durham where her dream to open her own bakery was to begin, that dream became a reality when she opened her first shop at 10 Northgate Hartlepool and whilst times and tastes have changed the quality and value ideals Mary started with still remain. Today with the third generation joining the team the family business remains steeped in family values, cultures and traditions following Mary’s ethics of quality which which are proudly represent today.
Today there is a wealth of experience in baking traditional artisan delights including handmade breads, quiche and scones. All our delicious fruit cakes are hand made in Villiers street with vine fruits real butter fresh eggs, some are enriched with brandy for a more intense flavour, all from a 100 year old recipe handed down from Mary’s mother.
