Here are the top rated bakeries in Dorset according to TripAdvisor:

805 Christchurch Road, Bournemouth BH7 6AP England

The famous M’s Bakery in Pokesdown is the highest rated bakery in the county, famous for its delicious cakes and “phenomenal” bread.

One reviewer said: “The best bakery in town by far! The bread is phenomenal and the pastries are hands down the best in Bournemouth.”

Another customer said: “What a gem on the main street!

“You cannot be disappointed with the artisan range of this little boutique.

“We tried the sourdough bread (the crispiest crusts), the mini cherry tarts (usually filled with fruit), the spicy sausage rolls (the best I’ve tried anywhere), the filled croissants cheese (baked with cheese inside and so tasty), mini cheese scones (sold in sets of 6 and it was lucky because my kids only left me one to try) and one delicious coffee.

“There was so much to choose from, I can’t wait for my next visit.

“It must be a local favorite and an asset to local tourism. May they trade! ”
