Where can you buy great bread in Forest Hill?
St David’s do Little Bread Peddler sourdough which is very good.
Do you think the Bona one is made of 00 flour.
There’s going to be a Blackbird Bakery in Sydenham, where Party Daze is now.
I was thrilled to see the Pantryhad a bit more choice the sourdough this morning.
I must confess I was less than impressed with their bread tbh
San Store also has a selection of fresh bread
Might be out of the scope of your question but I have been loving the Butter & Crust weekly bread delivery. I’m not sure where the bread is sourced from but it’s sourdough and has a lovely crumb. I also opted to have pastries and apple juice included in my deliver and I tell you; there’s nothing like waking up on a Saturday seeing the email saying “your bread has been delivered” to get you out of bed!
Butter & Crust certainly looks good. Hadn’t heard of them till now.
We get bread delivered from Thoroughbread Bakery - he lives in SE23 and the bread is really good!
We like the loaves from Marvellous Greens and Beans. Yummy.
I had a really nice loaf from Pantry a couple of weeks ago make by Lockdown Bakery.
Depending on when you go, Moustache in Kirkdale has sourdoughs, rye breads and ciabattas.
Sans Store has a great one on Mondays and other days has a different one which is also good
The Butchery also sell LB Pedlar bread
Does anywhere sell a nice granary loaf? Or a bloomer? Feels like it’s sourdough everywhere and sometimes I’d like a change
Thoroughbread (as mentioned by me upthread) do a wholemeal and a white loaf - I’m not a sourdough fan either!
Donde does good bread.
Any of them do gluten free options? so hard to get a nice fresh gluten free loaf?
I got a lovely granary loaf from Donde today.
I used Thoroughbread Bakery for a deliver on Saturday and can highly recommend.
The Cardamon Swirls (with lots of cinnamon) were among the best I’d tasted in a long time. The white tin loaf was delicious, and still slightly warm when it arrived. They bake until noon on delivery days (Wednesday/Saturday) and then head out for deliveries.
We also use them (twice a week) and if I had to pick a favourite, the focaccia is delicious.
haven’t tried this Peckham Rye Gluten Free bakery myself but good reviews - I don’t consume xanthan gum - https://www.mygfbakery.com/
Thanks really helpful I will give them a try again I have tried their GF bread mix before which wasnt great but I will give them another go with baked loaves which sound good
Seconded – I loved the Cardamom Snails and the English Muffins were amazing.
Another vote for Toby at Thoroughbread. All his bread is great but stand out for me are his lime ammereti which are sensational with a coffee. My daughter also loves his homemade Oreos.
Hands down Little Bread Pedlar bread from St. Davids and as someone else mentioned, The Butchery. Selection at Sans Store looks good although never tried. Pantry look like they have a broad selection but noticed plastic wrap in the packaging so have never bought.
Personally, if I know I can get a LBP loaf, I wouldn’t waste my money on anything else…
