All cakes, pastries, sausage rolls and breads get freshly made every morning by their bakers. Ingredients for The Bakehouse’s sandwiches and baguettes are all sourced locally. To add to this, The Bakehouse was voted by our readers as the ‘Best Bakery/Patisserie’ in the 2014 Hampshire Life Food & Drink Awards. See a video of that award presentation below (skip to 15 minutes and 39 seconds).

A selection of bread, brownies and more products handmade on the Isle of Wight using local ingredients whenever possible. You’ll find The Island Bakers at farmers markets every Friday and Saturday in Newport and Ryde respectively. Other stockists are located all across the island.
