Your Favourite shop: East and West ‘second to none’

Hundreds of baked delights always provide a thrill for customers.

“This shop in Butchers Row is 2nd to none. Graham is SO jolly and a FABULOUS baker. He has hundreds of different recipes and never stops thrilling his customers. His food is SO delicious. He personalises our giant loaves for our shoot. He takes huge trouble with where he sources his flours and ingredients.”

Lady Caroline Wrey, Tawstock.

We received a similar comment from Rachel Wrey: “For bread in Barnstaple, there is nowhere else I’d go. The shop is always full of the most delicious delights that I simply can’t resist.

I cannot imagine my Barnstaple trips without popping into Graham’s bakery.

His enthusiasm never fails to raise a smile and with the combination of completely delicious bread, Cornish pasties, chocolate logs and cakes in every form, I couldn’t recommend more highly.

East and West bakery and the fudge trip are always what we take friends visiting to sample.”
