5 of the Best Pasty-Makers in Cornwall!

We all love a good pasty here in the office - and so feel very lucky indeed to have some truly fabulous bakers close by! There are many great pasty-makers out there, and of course everyone has their own personal favourite... These five, however, seem to get the most votes (in our office, at least!)...

Rowe’s Cornish Bakers

Founded in 1949 by Mr Bill Rowe, this family bakery is one of Cornwall’s longest-standing favourites. Sticking to what they know best, Rowe’s mainstay is their delicious pasties - although they do now offer plenty of other snacks, pastries and sweet treats. They also offer frozen pasties – perfect for taking back home with you at the end of your holiday to enjoy at a later date!

Rowe’s have stores all over Cornwall: Camborne, Penryn, Redruth, Falmouth, Saltash, Penzance, Truro, St Austell, Helston, Pool and Newquay.

Philps of Hayle

Another Cornish family business, Philps was founded by Sammy Philps in 1958. Using traditional baking methods and local produce to create their lovely pasties, Philps have become a firm favourite not only amongst locals but also with visitors to Cornwall. Why not try one of their lovely hampers full of Cornish goodies including local tea, scones, jam and saffron cake? Philps deliver all around the UK and have stores in Hayle, Marazion and Praze-an-Beeble.

Ann’s Pasties

These delicious treats are handmade on the Lizard, using a recipe which has been passed down through the generations. Frozen and cooked pasties are available for delivery throughout mainland Britain, and they also offer Cornish Pasty Gift Boxes. In Cornwall, Ann’s Pasties have shops in Helston and the Lizard, and the pasties are also available from The Cornish Food Box Company, Picnic Cornwall, at Heartlands near Redruth, The Allotment Deli in St Ives and Green Star at Four Lanes.

The Horse and Jockey

A relatively new business – compared to others on this list! – the Horse & Jockey Bakery in Helston has been creating mouth-watering pasties since 1987. Their enormous pasties are legendary in Helston and beyond – and their bread, cakes and sandwiches are fabulous too! The Horse & Jockey have shops in Helston and Porthleven.

Malcolm Barnecutt

Founded in north Cornwall in 1930 by Malcolm’s grandfather, Percy, Barnecutt’s is so popular, they’re opening up shops all over Cornwall! As well as the delicious pasties which taste almost homemade, Barnecutt’s offer a great range of breads, sandwiches, salads, cakes and buns – so there’s something for everyone. There are shops in Bodmin, Pool, Launceston, Liskeard, Newquay, Rock, St Merryn, St Austell and Wadebridge – with cafes in Bodmin, Rock and St Austell.
