Overview
More
Marshfield Bakery was started in 1984 by Paul and Lynne White in their farmhouse kitchen in Marshfield, a small village on the Cotswold Way that would come to influence the products made by the couple and their employees. The business began to expand, with interest growing in the local Cotswold Company and its selection of flapjacks, shortbreads, biscuits and loaf cakes, which meant that the location needed to be upsized. Marshfield Bakery has now moved to its third site on the A46 just outside Bath, after a brief production run at their second site - a larger farmhouse just outside of the village. This third site was opened in 2008 by HRH Camilla Duchess of Cornwall and continues to thrive in the countryside environment. With just under fifty employees, Marshfield Bakery has expanded significantly since its humble beginnings but still retains its family values and a grade 'A' BRC accreditation. Visit our shop at Tolldown Barn, just off the M4 at Junction 18.

Bakery to me includes bread ..... I purchased a lovely loaf of bread last week from the very small unmanned shop but heaven knows who made it as surely 3 loaves don't warrant a production line.

I am sorry you were disappointed. We are indeed a bakery as a manufacturing site of sweet baked goods - such as flapjacks, shortbreads, brownies. I do hope the elderly lady enjoyed her handmade flapjack.

If you are passing (junction 18 off M4) heading westbound. It is worth stopping in. Very delicious, tasty treats available at a reasonable price. Will definitely be back.

Located on the A46 near Dyrham, Marshfield Bakery sells a limited but interesting range of tray bakes (caramel shortbread, tiffin, blackcurrant shortbread and various flapjacks) as well as some farmhouse style loaf fruit cakes. The tray bakes are priced at £4.80 and seemed expensive to...More

This is not at all what I expected. We thought we were visiting a working bakery, able to see the work and purchase something freshly baked afterwards. But no. It was a tiny crummy shop, where no staff member greeted you. They all seemed to...More

Stopped here on a whim on the way home from Bristol and was very glad we did. It's not very big but we bought possibly the best strawberry shortcake I've ever tasted, well worth the price!
