The latest venture in Longhoughton will be its largest so far, with seating for up to 40 inside as well as a lovely outside seating area.

Owner Kris Blackburn had hoped to open in June but the refurbishment of the former Spar shop has taken longer than expected.

The Running Fox business model has been tweaked as a result of the Covid pandemic, with a new online service, Click & Collect and deliveries.

The new venue will also act as an online distribution hub.

The bakery has already moved from Shilbottle into the brand-new kitchen in Longhoughton.
