Pullins Bakery

Pullins Bakery

Every one of Pullin's Bakery's products is still hand crafted, from the spreading of jam to the piping of chocolate.  This might take a little longer but they believe you get a much better product for it.  Feedback from food lovers across the land and a host of product awards tells the bakery they are on to something.

We have worked with Pullin's Bakery for over 10 years, selecting products that our customers love, from their daily loaves to something a little bit more special. We also proudly stock Pullin's Gleefully Gluten Free range, as well as gluten free loaves, their gluten free cake bars are amazing!

The Wine Tasting Co - Winscombe

The Wine Tasting Co - Winscombe

The love of wine came from a travelling trip to New Zealand, upon my return to the UK I took the plunge and moved to London to follow this new found love. I gained employment with a London-based international wine company and gained my advanced qualification and now also hold the Diploma with the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET).

Returning to the West Country I worked part time for a independent wine merchant while setting up the Wine Tasting Co in 2009. It was a natural progression to open a Wine Shop to have a base to share the love of wine. I love getting people exploring grapes, countries and different styles of wine, its a tasty subject to get involved in and enjoy!

Thatchers

Thatchers

We’ve been making cider for over 100 years and the world around us has changed quite a bit.

With some things we’ve moved with the times, and with others we’ve stuck to what we know to be right. Like recipes and ingredients that have been with us since 1904, or our oak vats that make our cider so distinctive.

These decisions aren’t always easy, a farm and the family who run it are linked by more than just a farmhouse.

Decisions that are made echo down the generations, like how William Thatcher's decision to start making cider over 100 years ago has shaped everything that has happened on the farm since.
