What can we expect at Bakehouse by Baked in Brick and is it open in the evenings?

The venue will have different seating areas ranging from casual to private and will open on evenings in the later half of the week to serve food, wine and beer, as well as cheese and charcuteries. Lee has longer-term ideas for the evening offering including tapas nights for diners to enjoy.

The three-floor cafe will offer a variety of freshly baked goods including breads, cakes and pastries, with the main focus being on the bakery and cafe. The ground floor will be the main bakery with a seating area of tables and chairs. The second floor will offer a more relaxed setting with comfortable sofas for visitors, and the top floor will be an exclusive, private-hire space.

What has Lee said about Bakehouse by Baked in Brick in his own words?

Lee said: “Having grown up in Wylde Green, I am really excited to return to such a familiar area to open our first Bakehouse by Baked in Brick. It’s such a well-known building, growing up I used to visit the ironmongers. We feel that Sutton Coldfield is a great location for our first Bakehouse site and can’t wait to open our doors.”
