Artisan’s premises with central corridor, built 10 years ago, in need of some renovation, currently comprising baker’s shop opening onto street on one side and bakery store and preparation area on the other with the rear room currently used as a hot-food establishment.
An outside oven is built into the rear wall with other bread ovens in the backyard. Flour is readily available as the building adjoins a milling establishment.
The shop is sited fronting onto the main street, the Via Decumana – an excellent place to attract passing trade. It comes with a counter and removable shutters that open straight onto the boarded walkway.
The present bakery provides plenty of space for food preparation but could equally be used as a workshop.
The décor, in general, is in need of some updating, but the oak-frame building and planked roof are structurally sound.
The back room is currently used as a tavern cum hot-food establishment and benefits from its central positioning in the town and is a popular venue.
An excavation at Poultry in 1994 revealed the layout of several buildings in a block that fronted onto the main east-west street, the Via Decumana. One building was a baker's shop that had burnt down in the early 2nd-century fire that destroyed this area of the town.
