Coronavirus: Please note that revised opening times and restrictions on access to the working watermill and cafe remain in place.

We are open for the sale of flour, bread, takeaway savoury and sweet baked goods, teas and coffees.

We are working hard to make sure that all our volunteers, staff, and customers stay safe. The size and layout of our café premises and the old mill building make it extremely difficult to allow general public access. 

Therefore, the cafe is currently operating a take-away service and limited seating based on a first come, first servced basis. We are not offering any tours of the Mill or access to the gardens.

Open Tuesday-Sunday 10am-4pm

Our Bread & Baking Schedule

Making your daily bread


Our Bakery

We are a small, artisan bakery with limited capacity and two bakers who work alternate days.

Our two small deck ovens have a capacity of twenty four loaves at a time, and each batch of dough takes approximately three hours to process from raw flour to the finished loaf (that’s not counting the overnight pre-ferments that we make). So when we sell out, we sell out.

To avoid disappointment we suggest that you order ahead, giving us 24 hours notice where possible, as our daily bread quantities are determined by the amount of levain (pre-ferment) that we’ve made the day before we bake.


Our Bread

Bara Havard - Small £1.55 / Large £2.75

A mix of Shipton Mill premium strong white (70%) and Talgarth Mill rye (30%) perfect for sandwiches, toast or just on its own with good butter. 

Bara Felinwr  - Small £1.55 / Large £2.75

100% AC Barrie wholemeal flour, grown just seven miles from us at Llowes near Hay on Wye, and milled at Talgarth Mill.
Topped with mixed seeds (including SESAME).
We hold a 1 star Great Taste Award and a World Bread Awards Gold for this loaf. 

Bara Brown - Small £1.55 / Large £2.75

 A 50/50 mix of Talgarth Mill wholemeal and Shipton Mill strong white flour. 

Harvest Cob - Small £1.55 / Large £2.75

 A tasty malted granary loaf, made with 100% Shipton Mill flour, perfect with soup. 

Spelt £3.30

 An ancient grain with a lower yield, and less gluten than wheat flours
(therefore good for those with a gluten intolerance but not for coeliacs).
Spelt has a delicious, nutty taste. Our 100% Talgarth Mill Spelt loaf is rolled in oats. 

Country Sourdough £3.00

 Made using our eight year old rye starter over three days.
this long fermented dough includes Talgarth Mill wholemeal and rye plus Shipton Mill premium number one white flours.
It has a complex, chewy crust and makes great toast.
Suitable for those with a yeast intolerance.
We hold a World Bread Awards Silver for this loaf. 

Specials £2.50

 Made using our Bara Gwyn dough (Shipton Mill premium white, with a little Talgarth Mill rye for flavour).
