CRAFT BAKERS SINCE 1932 Reading's oldest bakery loved by generations of local families for great tasting bakes every single day.
Warings Craft Bakers is a small family business started in 1932 by Lawrence Webster Waring. The business continues to uphold its traditional family values and baking techniques with two grandchildren and a fourth generation of family all involved.
We make and bake fresh 6 nights a week using traditional recipes alongside more continental and modern favourites. Our skilled crafts people produce a range of bread, buns, pastries and doughnuts as well as larger family cakes including swiss rolls, tray bakes, loaf cakes and in true Reading tradition our very own range of biscuits.
COFFE SHOP & TAKEAWAY
Here at our shop in Caversham you can also take a moment out of your busy day and sit and relax with a fresh ground coffee, tea or soft drink whilst indulging in your favourite cake in our very own coffee shop. We also have a tasty menu bursting with light bites and hot food should you want to fill up, with smaller portions available for our younger diners. If you're in a hurry you'll also find a wide range of tempting fresh store baked hot savouries including favourites such as sausage rolls and Cornish Pasties or if you prefer let us tempt you with a sandwich or filled roll made fresh on the premises.
We've been creating magical moments for over 80 years. Speak to one of our team and see how we can bring your ideas to life in cake whether it be a birthday, wedding, Baby shower, corporate or any other occasion we can make it happen. We can also provide buffet platters, business lunches and picnic boxes perfect for a river walk.
BAKE WITH US
Opened in 2011 on the site of the original family home and bakery behind our shop in Armour Road, Tilehurst, is the Sydney Waring Demonstration Studio. The vision behind the Sydney Waring Demonstration Studio was to bring back to life the original bakery where it all began and give visitors the chance to see how real bread is made by skilled crafts people. Although not a full working bakery a section of the original building now houses a demonstration facility for us to showcase the talent and experience of our craft bakers.
