Our Bakery at Bentham supplies our food hall and coffee shop with an array of delicious bread, cakes and pies.

They are based on Station Road in Bentham and have a popular take away where you can buy sandwiches and pies.

The fruit cakes made in our bakery are bestsellers for a reason – crammed with succulent fruits, every slice is delicious with a layer of marzipan and icing. This year we have decided to give you a few different options so you can channel your inner Great British Bake Off moment. You can buy the cake and then ice it yourself; buy an iced cake with no decoration, buy one with a traditional holly decoration or opt for our new silver and white them.

We’ve also got fantastic fruit loaf cake topped with pecans, apricots and cherries with an apricot and brandy glaze. It makes for a great looking centrepiece and also makes an ideal gift for friends and family, bringing some well deserved Christmas cheer.

All of your favourites are now in store, from mince pies and Stollen to some new ranges too.

We’ve introduced some luxury mince pies this year, a wonderful mix of mincemeat and marzipan with an orange crumble topping. Or try one of our NEW mincemeat and almond tarts. Delicious!

It’s not just sweet treats either, we sell thousands of pork pies in our Food Hall throughout the year. For Christmas we’ve added some new decorative touches to ensure they will be real showstoppers on the festive table. Try our luxury pork, smoked bacon and leek or our very festive pork pie topped with apricot and cranberry.

“We’ve been busy baking all your favourites this year but also wanted to create some new ones to make this year extra special,” said Lyndsay Wright who manages our Country Harvest Bakery in Bentham.
