Selling baked goods from croissants to loaves of bread, Wooster's Bakery is a popular local place for a bite to eat. 

There are locations in Bardwell and Bury St Edmunds and the bakery is a regular at farmers markets in Suffolk.

They have just been named as one of the top bakeries in the UK in a list by The Times. 

"It's totally special," said Will Wooster, owner of Wooster's Bakery. 

"I've never really sought out these awards".

The bakery was first established in 1992 by Sue and Simon Webster in the Bardswell Windmill. 

Will then took over in 2015, and expanded the business to open a second bakery in Bury St Edmunds a few years later. 

In 2017 Wooster's Bakery won the award for 'Best Newcomer' in the EADT Suffolk Food & Drink Awards.

"The big highlight has been sustaining growth," said Will.

"That big highlight has been peppered with little highlights throughout the years".

During the coronavirus pandemic, Wooster's Bakery was one of the few shops still open as they were providing food. 

"We actually had to voluntarily close for a few weeks to give everyone a break," said Will.

The cost of living crisis has provided challenges with rising costs of goods. 

"This is all about the team - this is all down to them," said Will when explaining how they have overcome challenges. 

The bakery have a low staff turnover with many of them staying there for several years. 

Headbaker Tom has been there for six years.

Currently there are no plans for future expansion across Suffolk. 

"I don't want to do a grand expansion," said Will. "The future holds consistency."

Their main focus is to invest in developing new products and make sure they continue with quality baked goods. 

"I also want to make sure we can stay in the top 49 bakeries," said Will.
