Pump Street Bakery was founded in November 2010 by father and daughter team Chris and Joanna Brennan. It is the result of Chris’ years developing his skills as a self-taught baker, and Joanna’s enthusiasm for all things gourmand. Chris manages the baking team, while Joanna takes care of the shop and cooks for the café.
The bakery is a crucial part of Orford’s identity. Local produce and flour is used wherever possible, and all sales of the Orford White and Orford Granary loaves contribute to the Orford Community Fund which supports a number of local projects.
It’s also a favourite of an Oscar winner! Mat Kirkby won the Academy Award for best live action short film in 2015, and loves Pump Street so much that he mentioned their doughnuts in his acceptance speech. Of course, the bakery has since promised him free doughnuts ‘for good’.
