Our Beer Bread is incredibly popular, using as it does real ale direct from our neighbours the prize-winning Allendale Brewery!

We’ve been baking our special 3 Grain Rye bread for years now, but our hand-moulded loaves are still a delight to behold, and the taste is like nothing else!

People are delighted to find that Allendale Bakery creates special bread using the traditional sourdough method, and this process delivers exciting flavours bursting out of our wholesome bread that other bakeries simply cannot reproduce.

Allendale Bakery also produces wonderful cobs with special ingredients, like our classic black olive cob, or our sun-dried tomato and basil cob, or our newest addition to the family, our wonderful sweet pepper and pesto cob.

All of our breads can be specially ordered, or you can just drop in to the bakery and see what we’ve produced on the day!

Every Easter, for at least the last three years, Carrie our master baker has been baking her very special Hot Cross Buns. Filled to bursting with fruits, mixed peel and delicious flavours, these are the real article. We know you can get half a dozen ersatz ‘hot cross buns’ from your local supermarket for less than you’d pay for one of our buns. We don’t care — there is scarcely a shred of comparison between the two items. We’re justly proud of our offering, and the proof is in the eating; our production runs invariably sell out within minutes of reaching the cooling rack!

Additionally, of course, Allendale Bakery produces a variety of delicious and ultra-exciting biscuits, crunchies and cookies, like our Apricot & Hazelnut Crunchies, our White Chocolate and Brazil Nut Crunchies, our fabulous Ginger Nuts, or our amazing Oat & Cashew Cookies.  You can find our crunchy biscuits in the biscuit section at Allendale Co-operative Society in the Market Square.

By special order,  Allendale Bakery will be delighted to provide a real home-made cake from our  amazing Cake Range, including the most extreme Chocolate Chocolate, the finest Carrot, the fantastic Orange & Almond, the deliciously decadent Strawberry Cream Sponge. They’re all superb examples of baking craftsmanship at its finest.
