Since being announced last summer, anticipation hasn’t stopped building for the latest project from Sam Buckley, of Michelin green star-awarded restaurant Where The Light Gets In.

Yellowhammer takes the form of a new community bakery, deli and pottery studio in Stockport’s old town, an area that has become something of a food and drink hotspot over these last few years.

Sam has teamed up with potter Joe hartley and baker Rosie Wilkes for the new venture, which is set to open for its soft launch this Saturday.

Yellowhamer gets its name from the woodland songbird, known for its distinctive ‘a little bit of bread and no cheeeeeese’ call.

Along with an endless selection of fresh bread, sweet and savoury buns and other baked treats, a pizza and natural wine night will take place on select Friday and Saturday evenings, with vinyl records and some special music guests. The bakery will supply the bread for the restaurant, and will share the same commitment to supporting small, local producers and using whole ingredients.
