Famous Birmingham gem, Sarehole Mill, is back baking for the people of Birmingham thanks to the launch of its new bakery.
The new modern-day bakery has opened and the Victorian bakehouse has been restored.
It has been nearly 150 years since the original bakehouse was in action at this famous historic property, but the site will now, once again, bake for the people of Birmingham.
The Millers Tea Room now serves up tempting sweet treats, light lunches and pizzas, all freshly baked in the new bakery. The onsite café is accessible to anyone during Sarehole Mill’s opening hours, so you don’t have to be visiting the historic mill to stop by for food or pop in for a coffee and a cookie.
Loaves of bread and sweet snacks are also for sale in the shop, encouraging nearby residents to shop local. What’s more, profits from the bakery all support Birmingham Museums Trust to continue to care for the city’s collection and to deliver its award-winning education programmes.
The project has also seen the original bakehouse restored and it will be fired up on event days to demonstrate traditional baking techniques
Sarehole Mill is famous for providing the inspiration for author J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic works.
Opening times vary but usually it’s 11-4. For more info visit www.birminghammuseums.org.uk/sarehole.
