Pump Street Bakery

Artisan bread and fresh croissants and pastries are baked daily at the bakery in Gedgrave and sold at the shop in the square. Fine chocolates, wine, olive oil, vinegars, loose leaf teas and coffee are also available to take home. The bakery and café are run by Chris and Joanna Brennan, the father and daughter team who opened the bakery in November 2010.

Come and enjoy a cup of coffee and a pastry, a light lunch, or a weekend morning brunch in our relaxed and elegant café. In the summer, take in the fresh Orford air on our terrace. We have taken great care to source the best tea, coffee and an unusual wine list.

Latest news from Pump Street



After eight and a half successful years of service the bakery interiors have just had a new lease of life. Pump Street's renovation will improve customer experience and quality of service. 

The new interior space has maintained a café with a seated area where customers can sit and enjoy a new simplified breakfast menu and seasonal sandwiches, there is a larger offering of outdoor seating for customers wanting to take their coffee and pastries outside; a takeaway service is also available. 

The design retains a focus on the 15th century heritage building and utilises natural materials throughout the space. One of the ways this is demonstrated within the bakery is by commissioning local artisans to create unique and natural products that are showcased. One example is that of Steven James Will, who creates unique and natural porcelain tableware on the Suffolk coast. 

We pride ourselves in offering outstanding bread and handmade pastries, all made daily in the village. We showcase our bread and pastries in our intimate café by serving breakfasts, sandwiches and savouries alongside the best directly traded, artisanal tea and coffee.
