If you’re after something a little naughtier the main bakery has already made up sandwiches, every cake under the sun, all-day breakfasts, break rolls, a large range of gluten free products and a confectioner.

Beyond the front of the shop, with its comfortable sofas and tables and chairs, Weston’s is one of only a handful of bakeries in Suffolk that bakes and sells fresh bread on site.

Like at all three sites, children and dogs are welcome with toys to play with for the first and a free bit of bacon or sausage for the second.

“The best bit at the bakery is if you’ve got the time you can sit here and see it all going on; watching the kneading, moulding, the pulling trays of buns and cakes from the ovens,” says Chris Weston.
