7 reviews of Cornish Bakehouse in English
just spoke to one of the workers over the phone and he was very funny and pleasant,needed to ask about some products since i have special dietry requirements,a i am now very eager to stop by and try my first pasty,walked past a hundred times already think its time i made a check in!
UPDATE: Apparently this has now moved to a shop opposite Woolworths. Not sure where that is!
Update on the update: Turns out the 'move' was actually another pasty chain opening... Cornish Bakehouse is still in the same place.
This is a tiny little shop with barely room for four or five customers to stand inside. And in fact there’s often a queue right out the door. The reason is the delicious pasties, which really are the best I’ve ever tasted. Historically Cornish pasties were made with a thick crust along one edge: miners, covered in toxic dirt in the tin mines, held their dinner by the crust and then threw it away, and so avoided touching what they ate and poisoning themselves. Though we think of them with a stuffing of meat and vegetables, they could actually have contained many different fillings, savoury and sweet.
Anyway, there’s no need to throw away the crust on these: even the pastry is delicious. There’s an excellent range, including the conventional and a fair few vegetarian options. I never seem to be able to resist the spicy chicken: big hunks of real chicken breast (no reconstituting or water padding here), potatoes and a lovely sweet and mildly spicy sauce. Or you could have lamb and mint, beef and stilton, pork and apple, spicy vegetable, cheese and onion… or more.
I hear they have branches in London too now… will have to check them out!
This is a tiny place that sells pasties, pies and snacks as well as soft drinks etc. Ideal if you are in town and want a bite to eat on the go or if you work nearby and want to pick up your lunch.
The do nice chees and bacon bites.
The staff are pleasant enough and the food is reasonably priced.
Cornish bake house is located in swindon town centre! Its a great place to grab something quick to eat while shopping! They serve a range of different foods like, sausage rolls, pizza, paninis, sandwiches, rolls that are all really good quality! The shop can get busy around lunch time and the que is usually spilling out the door!
