Shirgar Butter Welsh Cakes
The original Welsh teatime treat
Handmade in our family bakery, we have been making and baking Welshcakes for over 80 years, using our traditional recipe. Their rich, buttery taste originates from the award winning Shirgar Butter, to give a true taste of Wales. These delicate sweet treats are still lovingly hand turned on a griddle which gives them their authentic toasty finish. Delicious on their own and perfection when served with freshly brewed tea.

Pie Makers Since 1936
The origins of our bakery date back to 1936 when Wilfred Charles Lewis, a local of Swansea & Gower, decided to start making pies for the community.
Wilfred Charles started his small bakery in a single room in Fleet Street, Sandfields. He made his pies in solid metal tins and cooled them on the pavement outside. Wilfred perfected his craft, and soon enough he gained a reputation for his delectable pies.
Today and since 2013 it’s the third generation of the Lewis family, Wilfred James Lewis, that continues to guide the business.
