You simply can’t beat a good bakery, and Hereford certainly has one with The Laughing Bloomer.

Now open to the public on St Owen Street in Hereford, it really is the place to go for your bread, rolls and savoury items. 

Regular specials for notable events, as well as all your usual favourites, including scones and other sweet treats.

Stephen Meadows took on the bakery last year initially as a wholesale business, but opened to the general public at the end of 2022.

Stephen told Your Herefordshire:

“I previously worked for Morrisons and the job took me to Hereford thirty years ago. I’ve stayed ever since.

“I fancied a change of direction and took on the Laughing Bloomer. It was always my ambition to open it to the public and we have achieved that.

“We will be having theme days with different types of bread, and we have plenty of delicious cakes, doughnuts and eclairs on sale in the shop.

“We are a family business and we cannot wait to meet customers new and old.”

The Laughing Bloomer is located at 93 St Owen Street in Hereford and is open Monday to Friday from 9am-3pm.
