The family run Pudding Parlour is celebrating the opening of a new concession within Fenwick Food Hall. The unique Hexham-based dessert boutique is run by brother and sister, Greg and Kristy Giblin.

Greg and Kristy, both graduates of Sheffield Hallam University, opened the shop in November last year. Now 11 months later they have a thriving business selling their puddings to the public via their shop as well as supplying a number of hotels, restaurants, pubs and coffee shops across the North East.

At the beginning of the summer the duo were invited to attend a three day farmers’ market in Fenwick Food Hall organised to showcase some of the finest products the region has to offer.

Adam Barber, buyer for Fenwick Food Hall, says: “When I tasted their cakes and puddings and saw the customer reaction to the product we knew they would make a fantastic addition to our food hall offering.

“After a successful trial, The Pudding Parlour at Fenwick is now permanently based in the bakery department in the food hall and sales have gone from strength to strength.”The Pudding Parlour – which celebrates its first birthday next month - has become well-known for its innovative and creative take on cakes and the Fenwick concession is the latest accomplishment in a string of big business developments for Greg and Kristy.
