Column Bakehouse Add to Favourite

Column Bakehouse is an artisan bakery situated in the heart of the historic Devonport Guildhall, baking fresh bread, including our award winning sour dough, every morning.  Our head baker, Gilles Defrance, specialises in hand crafted techniques, using fresh, organic and locally sourced ingredients wherever possible to produce a selection of  delicious breads from bloomer to brioche!

As an alternative to the usual hen do activity why not consider a bread baking session?! A fantastic group activity to enjoy with your hens and you get to take home what you bake!
