The Bakery

Time is the key to great bread in our book, allowing flavours and textures to develop naturally.

GROUP DELIVERY

Group deliveries are mutiple orders delivered to a single address – it’s neighbourhoods working together! Each household places and pays for their order separately, and each order is packed into a separate, labelled bag. In the basket view below, each household inputs a ‘coupon’ which allows free delivery to a single address on a specific day of the week. There is no minimum value for single orders, but the total of all orders delivered to the single address must be £30 or more. You can download a handy information sheet to distribute to anyone you think may be interested in this scheme.

Your Group will need to be registered before individuals can place an order, so you will need to identify a Group Coordinator. If you already have a Group registered with us, you will receive an email with instructions for our new system.

It is essential that every household not only input the correct coupon, but select the correct date on the calendar. Orders placed on the incorrect date or without the coupon will not be delivered, they must instead be collected from the bakery.


All of our sourdoughs and yeasted bread and pastries are long fermented over multiple days. We believe bread should be honest, simple and satisfying.

Our bread menu changes throughout the week, and the seasons, but we have some old faithfuls that fill our shelves each day. Our daily breads include White Peak, Millstone, Seeded Millstone, Sesame Linseed & Sunflower, Dark Peak, Baguette / Batard, Ciabatta, Light Rye, Light Rye and Caraway.

As with our bread, we strive to make our pastry selection innovative, seasonal and inviting.

We take as much care and attention with our patisserie. All fillings, jams and pastry are made from scratch by our talented chefs. We visit the local markets to buy seasonal fruit, as well as taking inspiration from many European patisserie traditions.

Looking for baked goods for a special event? We provide pastries and bread for weddings, corporate events, markets and meetings. Get in touch by emailing info@forgebakehouse.co.uk and we’ll see what we can do.Save
