Gail’s Bakery is set to open a new retail site at Tunsgate Quarter Guildford next month.

Due to open on 29 October, bakery is set to join the 80,000 square foot retail, leisure and dining destination in Surrey.

It will further strengthen Tunsgate Quarter’s food and beverage offering, which includes The Ivy Brasserie, Vietnamese Pho and Cosy Club, said the firm.

Lettings agent Bruce Gillingham Pollard managed the deal with Gail’s Bakery.

“The demand for high quality combined with a great experience is consistently high in Guildford, and the introduction of the Gail’s brand to Tunsgate Quarter further enables us to deliver the experience that our customers are looking for,” said Claire Suggitt, centre manager at Tunsgate Quarter.

“We are delighted, for the first time, to be able to provide a dedicated café as well as a take home food option for customers, encouraging dwell time within the scheme and supporting our vision to offer a truly aspirational food and dining experience in Guildford.”

Tunsgate Quarter is home to lifestyle brands such as The White Company, Nespresso, OKA and Bobbi Brown.

Launched in 2018, the shopping centre is owned by Merseyside Pension Fund and asset managed by real estate firm CBRE.

“I am absolutely thrilled to be opening in Guildford. We have identified a strong foodie culture in the town and Tunsgate Quarter offers us the perfect spot to operate both as a bakery and a high visual lunch spot. We look forward to meeting out new neighbours and baking,” added CEO and co-founder Tom Molnar.

Gail’s Bakery opened a new site in London Blackfriars this month.
