Historical Welshpool building reopens as a new pub today!

Created on 24/09/2021 @ 09:04


A former Welshpool bakehouse in the middle of the town will be reopening its doors as a micro pub today following a major refurbishment.

Aptly called The Old Bakehouse, owners Paul and Jan Morris have carefully brought life back to the former deserted building which was once owned by Barclays to make bread for a local grocer shop.

Situated on the junction of the Back Road and Church Street, the building fell into disrepair once the old Llanfair Railway line was moved and the road system altered, and it was last used as a TV repair shop in the early 90s.

But Paul and Jan Morris spotted an opportunity when they purchased the building and have spent the past year or two turning it into Welshpool’s latest social hotspot.  

In a statement, the couple said: “We are really looking forward to opening the doors and welcoming everybody in. It’s been a long journey to get us here but we are sure the town will appreciate the work that we have done on this historical building.”

The pub will open at 11am today for teas and coffees, with alcohol served from noon. It will then be open seven days a week. 

What said about the Old Bakehouse

A micro pub opened on the site of an Old Bakehouse in the town in September 2021. Local real ale, traditional cider, craft ales, wines and a small selection of Welsh spirits are sold.

The aim of this micro pub is to be a small bar selling traditional drinks in a traditional way with no tv’s, no fruit machines, no jukebox but just good old fashioned conversation.

There is a relaxed, chilled out environment where you can unwind and meet friends or just come and sit with a quiet drink and a good book. The emphasis is to sell local and Welsh products to drink on the premises or take home and enjoy.

Although no food is served, basic pub snacks are on sale. There is also a smart, enclosed outside drinking area. The premises also opens from 11am for teas and coffees with alcohol sold from midday onwards.
