Celebrate British Pie Week at The Atkinson

Celebrate British Pie Week at The Atkinson

The Atkinson’s Bakery is celebrating British Pie Week (3- 9 March) with a range of new artisan pies.

The new selection of pies available all week includes: Pork, Pork and Apricot, Turkey Bacon and Cranberry, Lamb and Redcurrant and Pork, Black Pudding and Lancashire Cheese.

All the pies are hand raised hot water crust pastry, using the best local meat supplies and have no artificial processing aids or unnecessary additives. Truly Artisan!

The Bakery brings a modern and unique slice of café culture to Southport. With its Real Bread Campaign certified sourdoughs and loaves, freshly made artisan sandwiches, pies and salads, cakes and tray bakes it is the perfect place to meet friends and colleagues or bring the family for a bite to eat.

Wherever possible seasonal produce is used from local growers, brewers and makers, which means there is always something new and tempting to try on the menu.

Come and enjoy a bite to eat before you see a show or exhibition or just for an evening out.  Our sourdough platters (charcuterie and cheese) or selection of artisan breads and dipping oils are great to share while you enjoy a bottle of wine or local beer.

Visiting the library? There’s nothing better than a hot drink, a cake and a good book! Remember to get your order to take-out and bring it into the library to enjoy while you read.

The Bakery is open 9.30am to 5.00pm Monday to Saturday and Sundays 11.00am to 4.00pm

 About The Atkinson

The Atkinson is a key transformational project, enhancing Southport’s offer of ‘England’s Classic Resort’. It is a £17 million development, due to open in Spring 2013. It involves the integration of three Arts & Cultural managed venues, Southport Arts Centre, the Atkinson Art Gallery and Botanic Gardens Museum alongside the Southport central Library, into one regional cultural centre. Sefton Council, North West Development Agency, Arts Council England and Sea Change funded the Atkinson project. A funding application has also been submitted to the Heritage Lottery Fund for the fit out of the museum areas to feature within the Cultural Centre.

The Atkinson will deliver high quality arts and cultural entertainment from dance and drama to fine art and music, whilst supporting community art groups with their development and performances.

Set in a grade II listed building in the centre of Lord Street, the principal shopping avenue in Southport, which extends the length of the town. It will act as a focal point for the town centre and will add to the food and beverage offer and the Lord Street retail offer to make a complete visitor experience.
