Please note that due to an oven failure Giles will not be able to bake Cotswold Crunch on Saturday 30 May 2020. Also on that day the White and Wholemeal Bread will have a limited supply.
We hope to work together with all our loyal customers to support each other.
To ensure compliance with social distancing we have implemented a new collection and order system. You can now do both from the same page. First you specify a 10 minute collection time (from 08:30 – 16:00 on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday) and then place your order. Please submit your orders before 17:00 hrs on the day before collection. Payment by card may be more convenient and is healthier than handling cash. Remember there is a minimum order of £5 if paying by card. Stay well and stay safe.
Welcome to Crustum
We’ve been baking great bread in Kenilworth since August 2011. Crustum is open every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday and we’d love you to pop in and try one of our lovely baked treats. Have a look around the website and you’ll find out a bit more about Crustum, our weekly specials, the regular bakes, the people that make it and the flour we use. If you would like email notification of the specials please sign up below. Payments in store can be made with the following cards.
We’re not a high street baker and don’t have loads of frozen loaves hidden away ready to pull out as if by magic. We bake all our bread on the day from dough made by hand. If you want to make sure you get your favourite bread before we run out then place an order online and we’ll hold it for you until your chosen collection time.
There’s been a huge rise in the popularity of home baking recently thanks to programmes like The Great British Bake Off. Two incredibly popular courses are run at the Crustum premises by Nick Wood (bread) and Sharon Newport (cakes). These are not Crustum run courses any more; they are now run independently by the same two people who used to run them on behalf of Crustum. These courses are just what you need for all things doughy and all things cakey that give you the basics you need to try it yourself.
As well as the weekly special, we’ve got the usual suspects that we bake on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Some appear on different days so make sure you know what day your favourite loaf is available if you’re ordering ahead!
We’re fully aware that some of our lovely customers may have certain food intolerances/allergies. All our staff know exactly what goes into all our bakes so if you need more information please ask one of us and we’ll be happy to help.
