Welcome to Ayres Bakery

Welcome to Ayres bakery online, thank you for visiting our website. We would love to hear from you if you have any questions or comments so please feel free to get in touch either via email, phone, social media, check out the contact page. If you are really old school actually speak to a human being in the shop.

We love to hear feedback from the customers, especially when its nice feedback but also most importantly if its a problem, if we get something wrong we want to be able to put it right and not make the same mistake again.


I guess this is the part of the website where we make some sort of meaningful mission statement, so here’s ours.

If we have an ethos its one emanating from being a family firm, a bakery that has its roots in a family history of bakers going back six generations, a bakery that is also firmly rooted in its local community of Nunhead.

Our strong belief in making quality products in the bakery and giving friendly helpful service in the shop has been a continuous thread throughout our 60 years in business.

My father John Frederick Ayre, known locally as “Fred the Bread” started the bakery in 1955 then when he married Kathy, my mother, a few years later they ran the bakery and shop for the next thirty years together until sadly Dad passed away in 1985. I met my wife Frances in 1989 and we have continued running the firm as a family bakery ever since.


Freshly made each day
