10 great pasty shops in Cornwall

Cornwall is synonymous with rugged coastlines, mining, beautiful beaches and the iconic Cornish pasty.

Even during lockdown, businesses have continued to provide pasties by post to satisfy the demand from the public, so we decided to ask local people through our Facebook page which of the many local bakeries in Cornwall is their favourite.

These are the results…

This family-run bakery has been hand-making pasties since 1958. All ingredients are locally sourced, using Cornish suppliers and freshly baked each morning. Their original shop and headquarters is in Hayle. Order online for a taste of Cornwall at home.
