The oldest Cornish pasty maker in the world, Warrens Bakery, has opened its newest store at Basingstoke train station.

The oldest Cornish pasty maker in the world, Warrens Bakery, has opened its newest store at Basingstoke train station. The new store extends Warrens Bakery’s footprint in the travel sector even further, while continuing its journey East, where platforms will be filled with the aroma of freshly baked sweet and savoury goods. Located at the main concourse in the front of the busy station, Warrens Bakery Basingstoke was officially opened by Katie Anderson, Head of Travel at Warrens Bakery and Station Manager, Alison Finch on Friday 10th May and is the Cornish bakery’s 39th store across the West Country, South Wales and the South East.

Following the success of the recent opening at Bath Spa train station at the end of last year, Basingstoke signals the continuation of plans for more Warrens Bakery stores in the travel sector as Cornwall’s oldest bakery looks to share the best of British baking alongside great coffee with the nation.

Established in 1860, Warrens Bakery has a rich heritage and is proud to put a firm focus on provenance, hand crafted skill, traditional favourites and innovation. Famed for its iconic pasties as well as its speciality Cornish delicacies, crafted from fresh ingredients, Warrens Bakery caters for all tastes and times of day. With its range of hot breakfast items, morning pastries, hot savouries, fresh sandwiches, plus cakes and fresh bean to cup coffee, they provide a perfect range for both commuters and family days out. Additionally, those customers on-the-go will also have the opportunity to experience the new range of iced coffees and fruit smoothies.

Paul Denham, Retail Director at Warrens Bakery, shared his enthusiasm for the bakery’s latest venture in Basingstoke: “We’re thrilled to have officially opened our newest bakery in Basingstoke railway station, which has seen the creation of six jobs for local people. Our expansion into Basingstoke marks another step in Warrens Bakery’s journey in the travel sector as we continue to push further East and share our traditional and innovative baked goods and beverages with new customers. Our existing stores in the travel sector are thriving and we anticipate similar success in Basingstoke.”

Peter Williams, South Western Railway’s Customer and Commercial Director, adds: “We’re delighted to welcome Warrens Bakery to Basingstoke, a key location on our network, as it opens its furthest store away from its Cornish roots. We’re sure that both customers and passers-by will take the opportunity to enjoy the wide variety of food and drinks available, especially their authentic Cornish pasties. Warrens Bakery is just one of the many new retailers we have welcomed to our network in recent months, building on the successes of new clients at Richmond, Weybridge, Wimbledon and Haslemere, with more to come both this year and next.”

From humble beginnings on the cobbled streets of St. Just, two Cornish families, the Warrens and the Harveys, in 1860 united in marriage. One family provided the filling while the other family made the pastry and baked the pasties and this is how Warrens Bakery was established. Popularity for their Cornish pasties and Saffron Cakes quickly grew amongst miners, farmers and the local community. 160 years on and Warrens Bakery is proud to be the oldest Cornish pasty producer in the world, feeding families for generations.
