In-demand wholesalers Big Bear Bakery's retail shop, open weekends for speciality breads, super savouries and delicious patisserie.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

If you need a sign that independent bakers are sorely missed on our high streets, then check out the queues snaking down Sinclair Drive on a regular basis at weekends when Big Bear Bakery opens for business. The bakery, run by Ian Pediani with partner Dominique, has been operating for over a decade, supplying some of the biggest restaurant names in Glasgow and beyond, with their Battlefield shop opening to great demand in 2018. Get there early to maximise choice from their range of breads – including sourdough, baguettes and speciality loaves, and various savouries such as a couple of sandwich options, pizzas and danishes. Not forgetting the sweet stuff – from croissants and cookies to cruffins (the offspring of marrying croissants with muffins), frangipanes and natas, Big Bear delivers a delectable pastry. They also do vegan specials and good local coffee – plus there are a couple of perches outside if you simply can’t make it home with your goodies.

  • High point: Classy contemporary cakes and bakes
