Quay Bakery began when Tom, our baker was a chef at a local restaurant. To save money and improve quality, he began to bake bread for the restaurant. As additional income during the notoriously quiet winter months, we offered freshly baked bread to the local pubs and cafes. It quickly became apparent that there was a huge demand for traditional 'old fashioned' bread. Following the sad demise of the restaurant, Tom and Nicky took on the building at 6 Webb Street, where we continue to bake daily.
Tom trained as a pastry chef and baker at Riverstation Restaurant in Bristol and went on to run the pastry section there for 4 years before spending 5 winters as a ski resort chef in Champagny en Vanoise in the French Alps, and summers working at The Other Place in Fowey.
The bakery has been a huge success and word has spread through the town. Fowey and it's waterside neighbour Polruan used to be served by the Jolly Jack's bakery.
We feel that people deserve real bread baked fresh every day in thier own town.
On July The 23rd 2012 we opened the doors on our new bakery shop, Quay Bakery, on Webb Street. We relocated in 2015 to a permenant home on Fore Street, in the center of the town and we look forward to baking for Fowey and its many visitors for years to come.
We are proud to supply many of the local Pubs and restaurants, as well as supporting anual events such as The Harbour swim and Mussel Festival.
We are easy to find; just follow your nose......
