‘All good things come to an end’ - Bristol’s Assembly Bakery announces shock sudden closure

The bakery had been open for five and a half years

One of Bristol’s most popular and award-winning bakeries has announced it will shut its doors with immediate effect.

The Assembly Bakery, on West Street, announced its sudden closure on social media yesterday (February 3), saying the decision was made ‘with a very heavy heart’. Assembly Bakery first opened its doors in 2017 and garnered a reputation for its store-made loaves, pastries and cakes made from locally sourced ingredients.

The bakery expanded in 2021, opening a second site at Wapping Wharf though this venture was short-lived with the cargo-container bakery closing last year. On its Instagram page, its staff wrote: “It is with a very heavy heart that we are announcing from today the closure of the Assembly Bakery.

“Thank you for being a part of our family, thank you for your custom, and thank you for supporting artisanal bread! It has been an honour for us to serve the community over the last five and a half years and we are sad to say goodbye but then all good things come to an end.”
