Our Suppliers

Nice Buns Bakery is a specialist family run bakers in nearby Stockport. They freshly bake all our nice buns -teacakes, barms, tray bakes and scones.

H.M. Pasties (pictured) was set up to ‘bring out the good inside’ by employing ex-offenders to make and sell handmade pasties and pies. The social enterprise was born in 2018 with support from the Big Lottery Fund, Forward Trust and the Santander Foundation.

All our milk is provided by the gorgeous Bidlea herd at the dairy down the road. By partnering with this lovely local farming family (pictured), we’ve cut food miles and plastic bottles. Plus, our milk is as fresh as the day!

Royle’s is our cheery local butchers over in Macclesfield. They provide the meat for our breakfast barms including their own special recipe Manchester sausages – highly recommended!
