Pinkman's bakery is a recent addition to Park Street, it hosts a wood burner at the back of the venue cooking up all the fresh bread and pastries it has to offer on a daily basis. Jo and I checked them out for lunch one Friday to see what they were all about. As you enter you are hit with overwhelming choice, it is almost a little daunting. A large display of cakes and pastries sit under a glass counter as well as a wall of fresh loaves on shelves behind. As you continue on down the counter there are sandwiches, baguettes and bowls of salads. After a sample of some of their sourdough I decided on a cheese and ham sourdough toastie with a selection of salads. The salads on offer are a bit more interesting than the average. As well as leaves aplenty there are bowls of roasted butternut squash with seeds and feta, courgette and peppers and cauliflower with shoots.

I have to say that the sourdough toastie was one of the best I've had. It had a gooey swiss centre with a layer of what seemed to be a smoky cheese bechamel, absolute indulgence I will definitely be returning for one of these. The salads I had were also really great. Adding a cup of tea to my order meant my lunch was £11 which is a bit steep for lunch but the toastie was exceptional so perhaps I will stick to water next time to keep the cost down. Pinkman's are open in the evenings for pizza and they also serve alcohol so you can pop in after work for a bite to eat and a catch up with friends.
