Bakers & Larners of Holt
An independent, family run business, Bakers and Larners has been trading in the centre of Holt since 1770. Now, 245 years and 9 monarchs later, this exceptional department store stands as one of the oldest retailers in East Anglia and one of the few in the country to remain under the ownership and control of the founding family.
Bakers and Larners is a luxurious emporium of delights and no trip to Holt is complete without a visit to the store. In 2014 our deli was presented with the Pride of Norfolk Award and with over 50 varieties of local, British and continental cheeses and a wide range of cooked and cured meats, pates and antipasto, it is an epicurean treasure trove. The range in our food hall stretches from gourmet chocolates to locally produced chutneys, hand-cooked crisps to luxury caviar and king crab.
Bakers and Larners have unrivalled local expertise in wine with a fantastic range of European and new world bottles as well as a great local selection. A fine choice of beers, ales and spirits complete the department and tours of our atmospheric cellar can be enjoyed as part of our ‘Saturday Slurps’ tasting events.
We will always look to support local suppliers and stock a huge range of regional produce; honey and preserves, confectionary, pork pies and cheeses amongst many others. We are proud to stock English Whiskey, Grain Brewery Beers, Woodfordes Ales and Winbirri Wines, all of whom are local to Norfolk.
