Restaurant info
Opening Information

Come and meet our baker Nick Anderson at Mayfield Farm Bakery and see the bread being made by hand, the traditional way. Enjoy a cup of coffee in the beautiful rural setting and choose your bread and cakes to take home.

We believe in good, wholesome food, traditionally made without the use of unnecessary preservatives and colourings. We are keen to use the very best ingredients and from the closest source, keeping food miles to a minimum and our impact on the environment as small as possible.

Mayfield Farm Bakery & School was established in 2010 by Nick and Jane Anderson. Nick has been a baker all his life having worked for his family business for many years and more recently opening his own bakeries in Epping and Cambridge.

This bakery was opened in a farm yard setting with the aim of being very experimental and fundamentally different from a typical High Street Bakery pushing the boundaries of the excepted usual breads.

The Basic Skills Baking Course was very enjoyable, informative and most importantly fun. Nick is a natural at passing on his knowledge and enthusiasm for baking bread and it was a very enjoyable day

We had the savory afternoon tea - and it was lovely! Lots of food and lots of variety. I would have loved an option for different types of tea, and one small sweet bite to finish it off, but it wasn't a problem as we bought a cake for afters ( strictly didn't need it but fancied something sweet ☺️). Will use again! Regards Therese

The restaurant is nice with a lovely atmosphere. The food is outstanding and the afternoon tea with all the different bread types is a lovely way to sample all the flavours. We was offered processco and Elderflower juice which was nice. We was asked for our drink order before we sat down then waited along time for our tea after the food had been bought out I love the bakery shop and will definitely be back for coffee and cake

What a lovely time my daughter and I had, the afternoon tea was so enjoyable. My daughter has allergies to nuts, sesame and lupin and they couldn’t have been more accommodating, checking everything was suitable, it was so kind of them to go to so much trouble. Very enjoyable experience, thank you. We will go back again.

Fantastic afternoon tea, i would rate it as one of the best i've had. A little soft background music would be nice and although it was a windy day it was quite warm in the room, a couple of open windows to circulate the air would have been a little more comfortable. All in all i will definitely visit again and probably very soon!

I booked an afternoon to celebrate my friend’s pregnancy. There were 3 adults, two children and one baby. The adult afternoon tea was delicious, the mini princess teas were adorable and the plate of star shaped bread and butter for the baby were a lovely touch. The team couldn’t have done more for us and the whole afternoon felt really special. I would definitely book again for an occasion or just to pop in for tea.

Excellent day spent learning skills and tricks of the trade from Guiseppe. I thoroughly enjoyed the course, the atmosphere was friendly and I learned a great deal (but eat too much). I am looking forward to my next course!
