Bath-based baker Richard Bertinet is open a second bakery shop in the city this autumn.
Bertinet, who runs the Bertinet Kitchen cookery school as well as a bakery in Bath, will open the new site in the new Vaults at South Gate development next to Bath railway station.
It will be open seven days a week and will be selling a range of Bertinet breads, including their award-winning sourdough, spelt, focaccia and rye breads, as well as an extensive range of pastries including almond croissants, savouries like croque monsieur and pasties, cakes and tarts. Visitors will be able to sit both inside or outside on the piazza or take products away.
"We are very excited to be opening our second outlet in Bath. We hope our location next to the railway station and the extensive choice of pastries will attract both visitors and residents from the South of the city," Bertinet said.
