About Us

Bakers of Bath has been producing some of the best breads and cakes in Bath since 1935 and it's still thriving in the modern market.

The Twerton-based bakery was founded at the end of WW1 by Francis James Baker, who had been working as a foreman for a national bakery and at the time, had named the bakery D M Baker, after his wife, Daisy Meadow.

Since then, four generations of the Baker family have worked at Baker's of Bath, which survived a "fierce local rivalry" with other local bakeries such as Cobb & Co, The Old Red House, and most recently, Bath Bakery.

The business is now one of the few remaining craft bakeries in Bath.

After being passed down the Baker family for 84 years, the bakery was sold to Dave & Tracey Fussell last September.

Dave had been working at Bakers of Bath as their bakery manager, and is now continuing the proud legacy of the bakery.

Dave runs the shop with his wife Tracey along with their front of shop team, and five other bakers.

"The bakery is made up of a team of six people who have over 200 years of baking experience between them.

"We maintain high standards and we won't allow bread or cakes to be sold if they're not good enough."

While the bakery does like to experiment with new products, Dave understands that their core breads and cakes are what keep people coming back time and time again.

Staples like their field rolls bring in builders from across the city for their lunch, while some of their recipes have remained unchanged since the start of the business.

Another key piece of the bakery is the ovens.

The brick-built steam ovens have survived through all 4 generations of the Baker family and continue to drive the business forward.

The ovens are a big hit among our customers.

Bakers of Bath might be the last bakery in Bath which produces the Bath Bun, our history-steeped sweet roll, made from milk-based yeast dough.
