About Us

About Us

Established in 1983 by Robert and Sandra Burns, Burns The Bread quickly became an integral part of Glastonbury’s rich heritage. Bob and Sandra were determined to make their business a success. They didn’t want to build an empire, but a caring quality business. Not just quality products, but quality service too. With the addition of Robert and Sandra’s daughter Terri and twin Grandsons Max and Casey, Burns the Bread are looking to set the new standard in the baking industry.

Bread

Multi Seed, French Grain, Honey and Spelt Bread, these are just a few of the delicious speciality loaves we make. With carefully selected flour from family run mills our bread has people coming from far and wide to sample our perfectly proved loaves.

Traditional White

Our white bread is made using traditional fermentation methods, giving it a good flavour and keeping qualities.

Traditional 100% Wholemeal

Our traditional wholemeal bread is made from top quality flour milled by our independent millers.

Organic 100% wholemeal

100% wholemeal bread made using organic ingredients, the flour being grown and milled by our independent millers in the Cotswolds.

Branary

A very popular malted grain bread, full of flavour and goodness. (referred to by some as ‘that bread made from horses chaff!!!’)

French Grain

A blend of English and French flours, with the addition of a special blend of grains that gives this very popular bread a distinctive flavour.

Multi-Seed

There are multi-seed breads, and there is Burns The Bread multi-seed bread. What makes ours so distinctive? Perhaps it’s the inclusion of our natural rye sour, that has been gently ‘bubbling away for years – or the slow overnight proving. So natural!

Chia Seed

One tablespoons of Chia Seeds contains more calcium than a glass of milk, more omega 3 and more antioxidants than salmon. Chia seeds will give you lots of energy but won’t keep you awake at night.

Corn

A bread made from white flour blended with maize and corn niblets, creates a delicious loaf with a crunchy corn topping.

100% Spelt

Our Spelt Bread and Rolls continue to become increasingly popular especially for those that find they have a wheat intolerance.

Honey Spelt

Our delicious Spelt Loaf with added Mmmmmmm! This loaf is extremely popular, with added seeds and honey this loaf is a perfect accompaniment for sweet and savoury dishes alike.

Cranberry & Walnut

A delicious loaf with a special blend of carefully chosen flours finished off with a generous dose of cranberries and wonderful walnuts. Absolutely gorgeous toasted on an open fire!

Sourdough

Our Sourdough Bread is made from naturally occurring wild yeasts and healthy bacteria found in flour. In our traditional sourdough recipe, we use three ingredients: sourdough starter (which contains untreated flour and water), untreated flours, salt and water. It’s about as natural as you can get!
