award-winning artisan bread bakers. the home of real bread in Shrewsbury

We are Kate and Martin. Bread and Loaf is our award-winning artisan bakery and shop in the heart of Shrewsbury, Shropshire.

Bread and Loaf is Shrewsbury’s original artisan bakery. A passion for baking great real bread and other nice stuff (like cakes and pastries) is what we are all about - plus having some fun along the way too.

The bakery and shop is open plan so you can chat with us and share the magic of baking. Our breads are baked fresh daily and travel about 10 feet straight from the oven to you. Our customers really appreciate buying their warm, fresh bread.

Each of our loaves are lovingly hand-shaped, given their own time to rise and use the simplest of ingredients so they are better for you.

We love Sourdough, but we also bake yeasted white breads, as well as rye breads, wholemeal breads and malted wholegrain. Shropshire Whey is our speciality, baked using the whey from Appleby's Cheesemakers near Whitchurch. We are very proud that Shropshire Whey won a Silver Award at the 2017 prestigious World Bread Awards.

We’d love to meet you. Maybe you’ve got an idea for a bread that you’d like us to try out – we’re always open to ideas. Call in, contact us or find us on Twitter and Facebook.
