Pettigrew Bakeries, a spin-off of Cardiff’s Pettigrew Tea Rooms, is to open next month.

It is to be a “traditional shop where you can stock up on bread, cakes, patisserie, sandwiches, tea and coffee”, according to founder and owner David Le Masurier.

Le Masurier set up the tea rooms in 2012, and it now employs 17 staff. The bakery will launch on St David’s Day, 1 March.

According to the Pettigrew Bakeries twitter feed: “Getting quite a few asks about what kind of Artisan ‪#‎bread we will be producing.”

It said the bread will be the work of Cardiff resident, Angharad Conway, who will be the bakery’s “head of artisan”.

Bread and bakery products will be made using both traditional and artisan techniques. Or as they put it: "Our bakery will fulfil a dream for us to become a true producer in south Wales, supplying more incredible baking to more people than ever."
