Welcome to Spelt and Rye. We are a new artisan bakery / deli based in Hucknall.
Our aim is to provide the community with the freshest homemade breads, free from additives and using where possible ingredients that are locally produced. We use traditional techniques that promote flavour and enhance the loaf’s freshness.
The word artisan signifies handmade and that is what our breads are, ensuring the tastiest crust and crumb.
Hi - I’m Philip Roadley, the company’s founder. Although born and bread in Nottingham, I was also lucky enough to live many years in France and developed a love for their food culture, especially bread! Bread is an integral part of French life with most of the population visiting their local artisan baker at least once a day. Now back in Nottingham and loving it, I did miss though my real French baguette and Pain de Campagne. The only solution was to make these myself. Since then, I have developed a real love for bread making. Encouraged by family and friends, I am taking this passion further by proposing my breads also for the local community.
My Dad – My Dad loved making Bread . The wonderful smell of his loaves rising on the fireplace still lights up my taste buds now. My parents came from a generation that appreciated good quality basic food much like the French do today. He has certainly been my benchmark in life.
Lily Jo – My granddaughter. She has spent many times in her high chair watching patiently as I knead the dough. She loves my baking. Indeed one of the first words she learnt was Bread !
France – My home for over 25 years. Besides enjoying the country and the good friends I made, I learnt to love their way of life especially the food! With regards to the quality and range of bread, it was to another level to what was then available in the UK. Happily times have changed and artisan baking is becoming widely appreciated again and I am excited to be involved in this trend.
Isle of Skye Baking Company - Whilst recently on holiday in Scotland, I was lucky enough to visit the Isle of Skye Baking Company. The incredible enthusiasm of it’s owners Barry and Liza Hawthorne really impressed me. Barry took time out to explain how his company started and gave me much advice. In fact he has been one of the main catalysts in opening a bakery myself. All the best for the future Barry and Liza.

Green’s Windmill Sneinton – Built in 1807, by the father of George Green the world famous mathematical physicist. Later he inherited and operated the mill himself. The mill has a fascinating history and in 1984 was acquired by Nottingham City council and subsequently restored. Today it is home to a science museum, but the mill itself produces superb organic flours, which I use in most of my breads.

Lincoln Green Brewery – The brewery is based in Hucknall my home town. The company was created in 2012 and they produce some fantastic beers. Lincoln Green has really inspired me with what can be achieved locally. I am a great fan of their Marion and Tuck ales – vital ingredients in some of my signature loaves.
