A popular St Albans bakery has closed its doors after three decades trading from a small parade of shops.
Artisan Bakery, which sold bread, cakes, and sandwiches in Marshalswick’s The Quadrant, announced the closure with a sign in the window.
It reads: “It is with great regret that after 30 years we have now closed.
“We would like to thank all our customers for there [sic] loyal support over all these years.
“We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Wish you all the best in the future.”

“The honey and spelt loaf is particularly yummy but they tend to sell out so get there early.”
Another patron added: “George, his lovely family and colleagues make some of the best coffee and pastries around.
“Always friendly, lovely bread, cakes and savoury pastries. I’ve been going here several times a week for many years. Long may it thrive.”
This news comes after the closure of another long-standing tenant, Po Che. This Chinese takeaway had been serving customers at The Quadrant for 31 years.
The parade is a lively hub of restaurants and takeaways, including The Ridgeway Fish Bar, KFC, Indian restaurant Spice Hut, cafe Molen’s, and relative newcomer The Kebab Shop.
