THE West Cornwall Pasty Company appears to have closed its branch in Cornmarket Street in Oxford.

The food stall has been open for a number of years and recently closed.

The company was established in 1998 and has been owned by Samworth Brothers since 2017, with about 50 locations operating across the UK.

The company still has a branch at Oxford railway station.

Oxford Mail:

Popular bakery chain Greggs has pledged to open a new branch in Cornmarket but has not yet confirmed the location or an opening date.

A member of staff at a nearby store in Cornmarket said: “I’m not sure the pasty shop would be a big enough unit for Greggs - it’s very small.

“I think everyone would welcome a Greggs and I’m hoping it comes soon so there is more cheap food available - it would be good to have more choice.”

No one from the pasty company was available for comment.
