Christmas 2017 and new vouchers:

Well here we are again, that busy time of year where we gear up production in order to gear down for the festive period. Our new Christmas decorations are now up and we would love you to come down and take a look at Jenny’s wonderful creations, some are for sale for a donation.

Firstly before I post about what is going to be happening this Christmas I would like you all to know about our new gift vouchers. There are £10 vouchers for use in the cafe/bakery or there are special vouchers for courses – a great gift! Course vouchers are also able to be purchased through our Eventbrite page where course bookings take place.

Now back to Christmas…

Pre-ordering breads for Christmas

We are now taking pre-orders – please either phone the bakery or pop in and see us. Prepayment is required upon ordering. Please note we cannot take orders via social media or via the webpage, only by the methods mentioned prior.

Our usual range of artisan breads will be available for pre-order, however, the range will vary depending on the date on which you will be collecting your order. Please speak to one of our members of staff to find out more. Sunday 24th December is the last date for collecting your pre-orders.

We will have Christmas specials of Cranberry & Pecan loaves and Walnut & Stilton loaves available each day during the week leading up to Christmas.

Christmas Opening Times

The cafe and bakery will be open as usual all week (except Mondays) leading up to Christmas. We will close at midday on Christmas Eve Sunday and re-open on Wednesday 3rd January 2018.

On Christmas eve we will be serving cakes & pastries and hot & cold drinks in our Cafe. Apologies as the menu items such as Bacon sandwiches, HMB Beans on toast, etc will not be available.

For those of you who know us well you will be glad to hear that we aren’t planning any refurbishment works in the business over the Christmas period so we won’t be having an extended break this year!

Last, but not least! We would like to thank you for all your custom this year and we look forward to seeing you all over the coming festive month and into the New Year!

Thanks, The HMB team.
