Oxfords Bakery was established by Frank Oxford in 1911 at Alweston, near Sherborne in Dorset. Continuing the family business now in its fourth generation is Steven Oxford.
Oxfords Bakery has to be Dorset’s most prominent baking business, with visitors from all over the UK travelling to learn the art of bread making and see the wonderful Victorian bakery for themselves.
There are several shops across Dorset, including Sherborne, Sturminster Newton and a beautiful delicatessen in the lovely seaside village of Canford Cliffs, overlooking the famous beach of Sandbanks, Poole.
In addition to this, a new and exciting cafe in Dorchester was opened just before the pandemic and has quickly established itself as the local hub of true, unadulterated and hand made sourdough bread in the county town. Showing that having a local bakery really is imperative on the High Street
Well known for their amazing lunch range, including quiche, salads and truly delicious sandwiches, freshly made to order. A huge Vegan range is also available.
As well as all the usual sourdough, Lardy cakes and beautiful doughnuts, the bakery also prides itself on it’s transparency, with absolutely no ‘concentrates’ or additives incorporated into any of their breads. Using English wheat flour, (including locally grown in Dorset!) and baking the loaves in an oven now over 100 years old!
