Having already opened three branches in the North West in Wilmslow, Altrincham and Manchester city centre over the past few months, Gail’s, the much-loved bakery from London, is at it again. Opening in Didsbury on June 24, this branch will be the fourth northern location for Gail’s and it’s third Greater Manchester spot too.
Situated on Wilmslow Road in the south Manchester suburb of Didsbury, Gail’s will be serving up their signature artisan sourdough breads, pastries, sandwiches, and cakes alongside its specialty house blend coffee. The beautiful Didsbury building was previously a HSBC Bank, so the big question is will we find loaves in the old safes?
The opening of Gail’s bakeries in the region reinforces its long-standing ties to the area following The Bread Factory, Gail’s sister-brand and wholesale bakery, opening their Manchester bakery in Openshaw in 2017. It has since supplied high quality, artisan breads to some of the region’s top local restaurants.
Gail’s is committed to improving the end-to-end food system and is also passionate about reducing waste and sourcing sustainably. The critically acclaimed Waste Not range of bread, pantry and pastry products are produced by incorporating by-product ingredients from food making processes, like off-cuts from dough and yesterday’s bread. Plus, a newly established partnership with FareShare and Manchester based EatWellMCR will allow the distribution of any surplus food to those in the region who need it most.
In addition to the opening of Gail’s in Didsbury, the bakery known for their fancy loaves of bread, maple bacon brioche and afternoon tea treats recently opened a branch on King Street in Manchester city centre. With multiple sites in and around Greater Manchester it means we’re never too far from feasting on the likes of soups with freshly baked sourdough, sandwiches and sweet treats.
Gail’s Didsbury can be found at 760 Wilmslow Road, M20 2DR.
