Bacon Rolls were on the menu at the shop last Saturday morning and were popular with almost everyone who came in - even those who admitted that they had already had breakfast! The shop was pleased to use rolls from Hobbs House Bakery - our bread supplier and bacon from Lowerfields in Coate, who supply the meat we sell. Look out for another bacon roll morning in the new year.
