The Bakehouse

A thriving bakery on Mansfield Road in Sherwood, Nottingham, The Bakehouse has deservedly bagged many prestigious awards, including Cafe of the Year in the Nottingham Food & Drink Awards 2018 and Gold at the World Bread Awards for its garlic & herb sourdough. It was also shortlisted in the Great Food Club Awards 2018/19.

The Bakehouse began as a weekend pop-up bakery at the Doctor’s Orders pub, also on Mansfield Road. Founders Craig and Rosea Poynter then decided to set up this permanent venue in November 2016. The couple and their 15-strong team have created a wonderful venue that straddles the boundaries between cafe, bakery, deli, bar (live music nights happen regularly) and tapas joint. The atmosphere is laid-back, the menus are mouthwatering, it offers a superb craft beer list and it’s simply a brilliant place to kick back and enjoy great food, before walking out with some of the best bread you’ll find anywhere.

Is it a cafe? Is it a bakery? Is it a bar? The multipurpose nature of The Bakehouse – underpinned by its outstanding baking credentials – is behind much of its appeal.

After the Covid-19 lockdown, The Bakehouse moved its bread ovens into the area that previously encompassed its inside seating. Some outside seating is still available but The Bakehouse is now mainly a takeaway venue.
