Hilton Smythe are proud to present to the market Hot Pantry Bakery.

Hot Pantry Bakery has been established for the best part of 50 years and our clients have owned it for just over 34 years of that time but now have reluctantly decided to sell due to personal circumstances.

This exceptional bakery specialises in first class handmade produce such as homemade custard slices, sandwiches and pasty’s. In addition to a good selection of sandwiches made from the bread in house with hot and cold fillings. Also this bakery is one of the few in the UK to use liquid yeast which aids much more distribution and fantastic quality cakes, breads and pastries.

The business is complete with a Facebook and Twitter page and the bakery also has its own comprehensive website with a gallery of delicious products available.

Although hugely successful we believe there is still scope to improve and a new owner may look into the possibility of extending the opening hours or remodelling the shop to host a seating area for customers.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this busy business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.



We are advised that the business is Leasehold.
Original lease length is 10 years and a new is lease is in the process of being arranged.
Rent £875 per month from January 2017 as the landlord has confirmed on the new lease.


The business is open from:
Monday – Saturday: 5:00am – 5:00pm
Sunday – Closed


The business is currently run by the owner, 3 full time staff and 4 part time staff
