Loaf originated in 2009 as a community supported bakery run from the home of Tom Baker, baking weekly for subscribers. We expanded into our high street bakery in Stirchley in September 2012 – and now there is bread available for all! Visit our About Us page to find out more.
Loaf is proud to bring Real Bread* back to Stirchley. We make beautiful wholesome bread slowly, with passion and care, without artificial additives. We specialise in sourdough (rye and wheat) and other artisan breads such as focaccia and baguettes, but you’ll also find great white and wholemeal loaves in our bakery every Tuesday – Saturday.
*Real Bread is made with natural ingredients and does not contain processing aids or artificial additives, often added to industrial and supermarket loaves (more info below).

The Loaf Loyalty Card
A thank you to our regular Loafers – since our shop opening on Pershore Road we’ve been overwhelmed by the enthusiasm and support of local people buying our bread. So we’d like to reward our regular customers with our Loaf Loyalty Card, to enable you to collect ‘loaf’ stamps and redeem a free loaf of bread!
You’ll get your last loaf in a baker’s dozen on us
when you buy 12 loaves, you’ll get the 13th free!*
Ask at the till. *Subject to terms and conditions – details on the card.
We sell out of bread on most days, but on the occasions (rain and snow!) when we have leftovers we team up with The Real Junk Food Project, The Big Issue, and other charities in Birmingham who make sure it is distributed to local people who need it.
