One of Britain's Better Bakers



Hume's Bakery has sat at the heart of Halstead high street for over sixty years since our opening day on 1st April 1960. Our roots go back even further to a small bakers shop in the small village of Bures by Albert Hume. Once Dennis decided to join in with the family craft, we decided to open our Halstead shop too. 


When customers walk into our bakery, they’re immediately greeted by a delicious smell of freshly baked bread and cakes that has graced over four generations


We've been baking in Halstead for sixty years and have been serving our iconic sasuage rolls to nearly four generations.  Almost all of our goods are handcrafted, baked and served with a side of love, all on site.

Others available by order.
