A new bistro, bakery and farm shop has opened in Charfield.

Set up by husband and wife duo, Paul and Katie Nicholls, from Wotton, The Bridge serves fresh bread, cakes and croissants daily, as well as offering a wide array of organic groceries and other essentials.

The Bridge can be found at Charfield Gardens, an ongoing Barratt Homes' development which will grow to 115 homes.

Paul Nicholls said: "We are thrilled to be launching The Bridge at an exciting time for Charfield's growing community.

“We can't wait to welcome people to our friendly, welcoming bistro, bakery and farm shop, which offers something for all tastes.

“We have a brilliant team of chefs who will be cooking up a storm for the local community, as well as an excellent range of local suppliers who we'll be sourcing our produce from as much as possible."

The bistro area offers breakfast, lunch and dinner from 8am to 8pm daily, with Sunday roast specials and afternoon tea also on the menu.

Andrea Pilgrim, sales director at Barratt Homes' Bristol division which covers the wider South West area, added: "A huge welcome to Paul, Katie and the team at The Bridge. We are delighted that this wonderful bistro, bakery and farm shop has opened at Charfield Gardens, bringing something special and unique to this new development and paving the way for the creation of a real sense of community.

“New residents of Charfield Gardens will be able to benefit from all the amazing local produce and culinary delights offered by The Bridge.”
