Hi there, and thanks for your review. Just to clarify, the Granary bread we serve is not baked at the Staff Of Life Bakery next door, but by Lovingly Artisan, a bakery located on the outskirts of Kendal.

Get takeaway soup most days that I am at work, they are always fresh and full of flavour. The bread is fabulous that they serve with it although the bread portion keeps shrinking.
