Thomas the Baker is set right in the heart of Haxby, offering a wide variety of baked goods and treats. Always offering great value and with everything baked fresh (the bread is still piping hot when it reaches the store at 7am from the firm’s bakery at Helmsley), you can be sure you’ll find something to tempt your tastebuds. From its award-winning sausage rolls, cheese straws and freshly made sandwiches, to curd tarts and H’eccles cakes – you can even pick up party platters to make catering as easy as (pork) pie. The company likes to shop local itself where possible, so salad ingredients are collected daily in North Yorkshire, the free-range eggs are from Scarborough and the chutney is from York.
Thomas’ was awarded the first ever 3 star Great Taste award for a mince pie in 2020. The good news is they’re sold all year round!
