About us

Family run since 1938

We’re a family run bakery based in Bolton and we’ve been baking perfect pasties since 1938, we’ve grown as a business since we first started but our values stay the same.

It’s simple; all we want to do is provide you with delicious, freshly baked products and exceptional customer service.

Who we are

We’re Carrs Pasties, Bolton’s finest bakery. Passed down through three generations, Bolton is at the heart of everything we do, it’s where we started our business and we’re proud to still be supplying pasties to the people of Bolton today. Some of our staff have been with us for over 30 years, serving, baking, producing and delivering our products and it’s because of them that we are where we are today.

The Carrs Pasties way

When you produce as many fresh pasties as we do, it’s essential that we’re able to work as a team within our bakery and shops but also with our customers. We pride ourselves on our customer service skills and we do everything that we can to work as a happy and efficient family. We work to maintain an excellent relationship with our customers whether they’re regulars in our shops or trade customers.

Do the right thing

If you have a question you can be sure that we’ll always give you an honest answer and opinion because we want you to have the best possible service in addition to the best tasting product. For over 80 years we’ve been doing the right thing and that’s how we want to keep it.

Fill everything with pride

We make sure that every product we sell in our shops, deliver to parties or supply to trade customers meets our high standards – only the highest quality products leave our bakery.
