Famous artisan bakery chain Gail’s is opening in Guildford town centre, it has been announced.
The new shop is expected to open later this month, and will be located on the mezzanine level of Tunsgate Quarter, home to The White Company, Nespresso, OKA and Bobbi Brown.
Customers will be able to buy a wide variety of freshly made sourdough breads, cakes, quiches and pastries, all hand-made on the premises.
In addition, they will be able to snap up a range of grocery products.
It will be the second branch to open in Surrey, the other being in Farnham.
The bakery’s award-winning house coffee blend will also be on tap and refreshments will be available to eat in or take away.

Claire Suggitt, centre manage, said: “It has been my greatest wish to bring a bakery and café into this wonderful space at Tunsgate Quarter, giving our customers the opportunity to stop for refreshment in the centre of our town, so I am absolutely delighted to welcome the Gail’s team.
“Gail’s offers such a wonderful range of bread, cakes and pastries, and I very much hope that the Guildford and wider Surrey community will come and visit, whether it is to stop for refreshment or to buy their favourite loaf.
“Being heavily involved in the local community, I am particularly keen to support Gail’s zero-waste strategy and will work closely with the team to identify local charities that would most benefit from parcels of unsold food at the end of the day.”
Shoppers will find the bakery at the entrance to Tunsgate, where they will be able to sit and relax in the art deco surroundings or, in warmer months, outside on the pedestrianised area.
Tom Molner, founder of Gail’s, said: “We’re looking forward to baking for the community of Guildford.
“We have identified a strong foodie culture in the town and Tunsgate Quarter offers us the perfect spot to operate both as a bakery and as a place for people to meet up for coffee or brunch.
“We can’t wait to meet our new neighbours and get baking.”
