Brummies will now be able to buy authentic Cornish pasties on their doorstep with the opening of a Warrens Bakery.
Warrens is the oldest and arguably the best Cornish pasty maker in the world, which has been making the award-winning pastry delights since 1860.
Brummies may be familiar with their products from holidays to the West Country – but now they’re opening their first shop outside the region, in Sutton Coldfield.
There are more than 50 Warrens Bakeries in Cornwall and Devon, with one in Wellington in Somerset and one in Bristol.
And soon there will be one on Mulberry Walk, Mere Green, the new development which will also include a Boots, M&S Food, Bistrot Pierre, Prezzo and Caffè Nero.
It will open on February 16 to sell sandwiches, scones, artisan breads, cakes and their hand-crimped Cornish pasties. Last year Warrens were voted the World Pasty Champion.
They have also created a new range of vegan pasties.
Warrens chairman Mark Sullivan says: “This is an extremely momentous occasion for all the team.
“Last year we unveiled our first store in Bristol and we’re now set to open our first one outside of the West Country.
“As one of the original artisan bakers in the United Kingdom, we pride ourselves on our commitment to producing hand crafted, sustainable and affordable baked goods. We are thrilled to now be in a position to offer these to the people of Mere Green.”
George Abuaita who is running the bakery said: “I really felt there was a gap in the area for a good quality bakery.
“I’m positive the new bakery will fill this gap and we already have hopes to expand the number of bakeries across the West Midlands over the next few years.”
