The location of the new Cornish Bakery in Nottingham has been revealed. The city centre branch of the award-winning national chain will be stationed on Bridlesmith Gate.

The company first announced its arrival to Nottingham in early May. And while a location nor an official opening date have not been announced yet publicly, a planning application submitted to Nottingham City Council to change a sign at a building on Bridlesmith Gate includes drawings evidencing the fact that the brand's Nottingham premises will be on the popular shopping street.

Its exact location is number 17 - the site of the former Jack Wills store which closed in 2022. It means it will be sandwiched between Caffe Nero and the closed 101 Vintage store.

The signage on the front of the unit will say "Cornish Bakery" on the left and "Coffeee & Pastries" on the right. The business has also applied to put "Coffee & Pastries" on the projecting sign.

Founded in 1994, Cornish Bakery has more than 50 sites around England including in Birmingham, Stamford, and Truro. It sells pasties, Viennoiserie, cakes, bakes, tortilla, feta swirls, ham hock toasties, savoury scones, their "famous" cheese straws and ethically sourced coffee - but not bread.

Bridlesmith Gate's branch will be the first in Nottinghamshire. The chain also delivers pasties and sausage rolls by post and offers a takeaway service as well as allowing customers to eat in.
