About Us


Pocklingtons was established in 1924 by Cyril Pocklington, the 3rd youngest of 14 children of a Louth Miller, James Pocklington. The family still own and manages the business. Currently Cyril's grandson, Christopher & his wife Tina, run the business. Best known for our famous Lincolnshire Plumbread, we have won awards for our product quality and customer service in our shops – as voted for by the "Tastes of Lincolnshire" judges. We have a modern bakery situated in the small village of Withern, where the family have lived since the mid 1800's.

Although products are not available to buy from the bakery we supply many businesses right across the county, to quote a Lincolnshire based radio station, 'From the Humber to the Wash' and a little further too! We have a shop of our own in the small market town of Louth and also a well stocked market stall in Top Town Market, Grimsby where our knowledgeable staff will assist you.

We maintain traditional baking methods, baking fresh crusty bread & soft rolls using traditional recipes. Wherever possible, we use locally sourced ingredients, locally grown wheat for our flour and local eggs for our cakes. Milk for our delicious Egg Custards comes from the local dairy. We cook all our own meat for pies, pasties and savouries – all sourced from the local butcher or direct from the abattoir. Our famous Lincolnshire Plumbread is available across the county and also available by mail order. We can post worldwide if required.
