Hot Pantry Bakery

Posted in Reviews by thesandwichclub on November 1, 2010

Cathedral Road is a place where you can find a fine selection of independant shops – butcher, wine merchant, deli, greengrocer and baker.


The Hot Pantry bakery is a tiny space with a counter crammed full of the usual homemade treats, as well as a wide selection of freshly made sandwiches.

Halloween season is upon us and they have decided to bake loaves of pumpkin bread which in turn have been used as the fundamental component in some of todays sandwiches.

Eager to try the pumkin bread I searched out my next victim like a recently freed Michael Myers. The only filling on offer (or only one left?) with the pumpkin bread was tuna and sweetcorn. Other sandwich clubers may well baulk at this choice, but I actually dont mind sweetcorn in a sandwich.



So on to the tasting. The bread is really good, a nice sweet and nutty taste with a generous helping of pumpkin and seaseme seeds. Filling is nothing spectacular but there is plenty of tuna and sweetcorn packed in without any of the usual bulking out with mayo.

Overall I was very pleased with this, more so given it only cost £1.65.
