Noak reopening

Noak has pivoted again... The Mantle Road bakery recently closed but is reopening shortly in a new incarnation. The owner writes:

Our new menus will have a modern focus and reflect the Australasian training of the new kitchen team. We are so excited to show you what we can do. We really believe you'll love it.

Our hours, initially, will be 8am - 4pm, seven days a week. We have a strong plan to be open for dinner as well, and will aim to launch this by 1 October, latest.

Having looked closely at our use of space and resources, we have made the decision to work closely with a small-scale bakery based in south-east London, who will supply us with bread for retail as well as for our own kitchen.

We are still passionate about bread-baking. But we have made this a longer-term goal, and will be working to get the cafe menu and service to a very high standard before returning to home bread-baking. We'll still be baking pastries and afternoon cakes, though. Cinnamon buns will be back!

If you are an experienced chef (commis, CDP, or sous level) or floor-service professional, we would love to receive your CV at
