ARTISIAN bakery The Flour Pot has opened a fourth branch in Hove.

The new bakery on First Avenue is in addition to stores in Elm Grove, Preston Drove and Sydney Street, as well as a production kitchen on Old Shoreham Road.

The independent business was founded in Hove by Oli Hyde and began by supplying Small Batch Coffee.

Oli said: "The business has been going from strength to strength in the last couple of years.

"We strongly believe that we make some of the best hand crafted artisan bread in the region and to achieve this we must maintain very high standards on a daily basis."
