You will find our bakery and café in Charterhouse Street, opposite Smithfield Market, between Farringdon and Barbican in the City of London. Smithfield Market, opened in 1868, has been around for even longer than the PAUL family bakery (1889) and is still London’s main meat market, covering an area of over 10 acres, built on a former ‘smooth field’ of grass where there was a regular horse market in the Middle Ages. We are a near the Barbican Centre with its concert hall, theatre and cinema, St. Bartholomew’s Hospital (popularly known as Bart’s) and the Museum of London, so pop in for a pre-concert snack, to refresh yourself after delving into local history or just to buy your daily hand made bread. At 41-42 Cloth Street you will find Cloth Fair, said to be the oldest house in the City of London, dating back to before the Great Fire. 43 Cloth Fair next door is a Georgian house formerly the home of Sir John Betjeman, one of Britain’s best loved poets. Our nearest stations are Farringdon and Barbican (Hammersmith & City, Circle and Metropolitan Lines). Farringdon is also a national rail station. 21 seats are available inside. There is a terrace with a further 18 seats. Disabled access is available. Free wi-fi.
