In September 2008, Julian Carter and Tim Hart opened Hambleton Bakery to produce top quality traditionally made bread for Hambleton Hall and Hart’s Nottingham. In addition to a growing list of wholesale customers (pubs, restaurants, delis, etc) the bakery now has retail outlets in Exton, Oakham, Market Harborough, West Bridgford, Stamford and Oundle.

Initially the aim was to rediscover the taste of good bread. Not the taste of sugar, malt, cheese, onions, olives, sundried tomatoes, poppy seeds etc etc, but the magical flavour that can be conjured from unadulterated flour, salt and water using the slow, traditional processes that made the bread that fed our ancestors.

Hambleton Bakery has grown to supply six Hambleton Bakery shops, Hambleton Hall, The George at Stamford, many farm shops, delis and cafes across the surrounding counties as well as restaurants, gastro pubs and a local school. We continue to build our network of wholesale customers and to spread the word of traditional artisan bread and cake making.
