This weekend, I travelled from Bournemouth to Oxfordshire and spent just over 24 hours at home. Of course, being there on a Sunday morning meant only one thing: we had to have a visit to one of my favourite places, Bakergirl.
If you have never been to Bakergirl, you are missing out on something very, very special. Tucked away in the Cotswold village of Great Tew, near Chipping Norton and Soho Farmhouse, this little independent bakery is something that cannot be missed. People queue out the door just to get one of their famous cinnamon buns and sourdough loaves and trust me, it’s worth it.
If you’re lucky, you’ll get a seat either inside or outside but if not, there is a lovely green opposite where people have their takeaway coffee and pastries and sit and soak up the sunshine (as long as it’s a nice day!). When we were there, it was a beautiful, sunny October morning and we managed to get a table outside. Between us, we got an almond pain au chocolat, Bakewell croissants and a cheese and marmite roll. My mum and I were very, very excited about the Bakewell croissants as they are a new addition to the Bakergirl family and are exclusive to Sundays, which was lucky for us!
Bakergirl is no longer a hidden secret and is busy most days so to avoid disappointment, it is important to get there early. If you are visiting for the first time, there should be no question about what you are going to order; it has to be a cinnamon bun. (Or, if you prefer something savoury a cheese and marmite roll) They are absolutely delicious and after you’ve had one, you’ll want to go back for more every week.
If you are in the area (or even if you’re not), Bakergirl is a place that you just have to visit! They are currently open Thursday to Sunday, 10am until 3pm. For more information, you can follow them on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook and or check out their website.
