Navenby bakery reopens after much-kneaded revamp

Welbourne’s Bakery, one of the longest-established bakeries in the county, has today reopened following an extensive refurb.

Founded in 1896, Welbourne’s Bakery in Navenby uses traditional recipes passed down through several generations of the Welbourne family to produce fresh bread, cakes, and pastries on site.

Today the bakery is still family-run, now by members of the Tweedale family, who decided it was time for a new look.

Customers can expect to see a whole new bakery as well as a range of new products.

Lauren Tweedale, Manager at Welbourne’s, said: “We’re keen to bring something new and offer different products in the bakery and to the village and we felt now was the right time.

“Following our refurbishment, fresh cream cakes will be available every day and we’ll also be adding fruit tarts, macarons and a variety of other cakes to our selection.

“We pride ourselves on using local suppliers and in addition to our Welbourne’s own brand jams, preserves and chutneys, customers will have more choice from our new breakfast menu which includes freshly made sausage and bacon rolls and a larger range of hot drinks including lattes and cappuccinos courtesy of Stokes Coffee.”
