"Newnham Bakery - bakery and cafe'"

A review of Newnham Bakery by Newnham resident written on Thursday 5th of October 2017


This was the first shop to appear in the hamlet of Newnham Croft. By 1874 a Mr William Wilby was living at Hope Cottage at 7 Derby Street, running a bakery. He also became a sub-postmaster. During the course of almost 150 years, the Newnham Bakery has changed hands several times. But all the bakers have continued to produce their famous granary loaves. It has been recently taken over in 2017 by a new proprietor. John, the manager, is keen to reflect changing tastes as well as accommodate the traditional lines. The new proprietor has also responded to the growing demand for a cafè in this area of Newnham where local residents can catch up with gossip, or visitors can have a coffee and one of the excellent range of cakes. A few savouries such as quiches are also ideal. It might be a good place to stop after a walk to Grantchester. The shop and cafè are open from 8:00pm to 5:30pm.

One recent visitor writes on Facebook:

'Right on our door step! Just had coffee and cake which were brilliant. Their sourdough breads are wonderful too. At long last Newnham has fabulous bakery and coffee shop all in one.'.
