Two Magpies Moves into the City

With three sites across Suffolk, Two Magpies Bakery is now moving into Norfolk as it opens its fourth bakery in Norwich City Centre.

Opening on 8th February, Two Magpies Bakery is moving into the site of the former Timber Hill Bakery, serving bakery items and lunches in its 70-cover cafe.

We are very excited to be opening our fourth bakery, particularly as this is the first time we will move away from the coast and into the city,” explains Steve Magnall, co owner of the Two Magpies with his wife, Rebecca Bishop. “Two Magpies is building a very strong reputation in Suffolk so we hope to do the same in Norfolk and become a destination in the city for great baked goods and fantastic lunches.”

Having purchased the assets from the Timber Hill Bakery Ltd, Two Magpies will be open from 8am to 5pm, seven days a week and will offer a vast selection of baked goods, all made on site. “Timber Hill Bakery offered a good range of vegan and gluten free options, so we have devised a new menu to cater to their customer base and also grow this side of the business,” explains Rebecca. “This café is a standalone site which will provide daily fresh sourdough bread, viennoiserie, cakes and a delicious lunch menu. We’re introducing a whole range of new products that will all be lovingly-made by our expert bakers, pastry and lunch chefs.”

General manager, Yasmin Wyatt, who joined the business six months ago and will be overseeing the management of all four bakeries in the group, adds, “This is a very exciting new project for us. It will be great to be in the city and to attract a whole new range of customers from tourists, to office workers and customers wanting a great lunch on the go. We have taken on six of the existing Timber Hill Bakery team, and moved a baker and pastry chef from our current team over to the Norwich site. There will be 18 staff in total.”

Customers can expect the same impeccable Two Magpies service at the new branch, with all bread and pastry being prepared and cooked on site.
