Gail’s has grown out of a small craft chef-led bakery that has been serving top restaurants and food venues for the last 30 years. In 2005, Gail’s opened its first neighbourhood bakery in London’s Hampstead Village.

The bakery is known for its sourdough bread, sweet and savoury bakes, freshly made sandwiches and house-blend speciality coffee. The bakery in Clifton will champion several South-West producers, such as Shipton Mill flour, Quicke’s dairy and biodiversity champions, Wildpress.

Bakery Manager, Jacqueline Lotter-Raines will be leading a team of 20 alongside head bakers Sophie Small and Tariq Dinnall and head barista Nicola Piorkowski, to welcome residents and visitors of Clifton to 14 Regent Street.

Jacqueline Lotter-Raines, Bakery Manager at GAIL’s Clifton Village said: “The team and I are really looking forward to welcoming everyone through our bakery doors very soon. You can expect freshly baked sourdough, sweet and savoury bakes, sandwiches and house-blend speciality coffee made with the very best ingredients, some of which are sourced just a few miles away.

“Whilst baking is important to us, we’re also committed to supporting our local community, so we’ve chosen Loaves and Fishes and Feed The Homeless as our nominated charities. Through our partnerships, we want to champion the work that these incredible organisations do, so we really are making positive impacts wherever we bake.”

Gail’s Clifton Village will be open from 7am until 7pm daily.
