Cornish pastries, cheese straws and croissants will also be on the menu.

Although no set opening date has yet been announced, the bakery will open in March.

A recruitment day has been held for people in and around the town interested in working at the new branch.

The chain already has three Sussex stores in Rye, Hastings and Chichester.
