Ugly Bread Bakery


No trip to the town centre with my six-year-old is complete without a trip to the Ugly Bread Bakery. A great place at the top of Hockley and now with a second venue on Market Street in Nottingham.

The interior is all exposed wood and pallets. But you can’t help but be drawn in by the piles of freshly baked bread and hunks of focaccia filled with deli meats and cheeses. Ther focaccia and their fab collection of pizza are grilled super-fast in the bread oven so it’s great for a quick meal, before the cinema/theatre. But it’s also definitely worth a linger as it’s fantastic for people watching especially from the first floor balcony.

For those who need their caffeine fix the coffee is excellent too with a tiny custard – filled cannoli.

Ugly Bread also a great range decent number of alcholic and soft drinks including a cabinet filled with juices from Chegworth Valley , if you have never had apple and beetroot juice the pink colour is stunning.


Now you see it now you don’t this was Em’s first trip a couple of years ago, when she totally demolished a chorizo pizza.  I was slightly hoping to snag a few slices but lesson learned I now order my own pastrami , cheese and chilli foccacia.
