A Cornish pasty drive-thru to open in the South West could be a world first. 

The Plymouth Herald reported the opening, which is set to launch at the end of June, after having been in the pipeline for around 18 months.

Portreath Bakery’s drive-thru will open near Redruth, Cornwall on Wilson Way, Pool. It will feature a 100-seat restaurant, a gluten-free bakery and a state-of-the-art baker training facility. It will sell pasties, cream teas.

Owner, and guest star of The Great British Bake-Off, Marion Symonds said: “The plans have been in the pipeline or 18 months and I am buzzing that it is nearing completion.”

Symonds started working in bakeries when she was 14 and was awarded the pasty ambassador award at the 2015 World Pasty Championships for her work promoting the pasty in Europe and Mexico.

She also owns a second bakery in Lanner, also in the Redruth area.
