Having already opened two branches in the North West in Wilmslow and Altrincham over the past few months earlier, Gail’s, the much-loved bakery from London, is at it again. Coming soon to Didsbury, this branch will be the fourth northern location for Gail’s and it’s second Greater Manchester spot too.
Situated on Wilmslow Road in the south Manchester suburb of Didsbury, Gail’s has recently submitted a pavement license to allow for tables and chairs to be placed outside the premises. The Gail’s Didsbury branch plans to open on June 21, serving up their signature artisan sourdough breads, pastries, sandwiches, and cakes alongside its specialty house blend coffee.
Hoardings have now appeared around a the beautiful Didsbury building, which was previously a HSBC Bank. 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 also plans to open a branch 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, but until the possible arrival of Gail’s bakery in Didsbury and Manchester’s King Street it’s a short drive to either Altrincham or Wilmslow for now.
Gail’s Didsbury can be found at 760 Wilmslow Road, M20 2DR.
