Experienced Kitchen Assistant (Gloucester Road)

Experienced Kitchen Assistant (Gloucester Road)

Hobbs House Bakery is a fifth generation bakery family with its roots firmly in Bristol- having established the Herbert’s bakery in Bristol in 1953. Our bread is handmade in our bakery in Chipping Sodbury and sent out daily to our four shops across the Cotswolds and now we would like to return to our roots and open a Hobbs House shop in the city where it all began.

We believe that every community should be able to enjoy good bread and we open early daily to serve handmade breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea. We are passionate about coffee; our selected blend is provided by Extract coffee roasters in Bristol.

We all share a passion for good food and caring for our communities. With this in mind, we are committed to giving customers the very best possible experience – whether it is around food quality, shop environment or customer service.
