I walked up the unit today that was previously the pop up bakers, looks like this is becoming a more permanent shop on the street.

Hoping its the same people as the sour dough bread was good to!

Their croissants are not always fresh in the morning.

Indeed, neither was their bread. I didn't think they were very good. Bread at the Giddy Grocer is much, much better.

The bread at Giddy Grocer is the same as Watch House.

Some of the beast loaves you can buy in London.

I agree. Little Pedler is the best bread around. The Giddy grocer have a better offering than the Watchhouse. The wholegrain sourdough is exceptionally good.

I agree that the Little Bread Pedlar loaves are the best around, and although they are a bit pricey they do last a good 3 or 4 days in our household.

We usually pick up a loaf from The Watch House in Shad Thames but they close before I get home from work so it's a weekend only treat. Good to hear that Giddy Grocer sell them too as they appear to be open much later in the evenings!

Where I come from, bakers begin their working day at 04:00, and by 06:00 have delivered to their clients (bars, restaurants, food stores etc, or if they also retail directly to the public make it available to their customers.

All of their unsold products (bread and pastries) are thrown out at the the end of the day: it is absolutely out of the question trying to flog them the next day...
