A family-owned bakery cafe has closed after 83 years in the heart of a Buckinghamshire town.

Jungs cafe and bakery in Beaconsfield has closed for good after almost a century of selling cakes, pastries and bread to hungry customers.

The cafe occupied an outdoor terrace and indoor dining space on The Broadway until its closure in January.

Owner of Jungs Richard Jung said the closure was brought on by the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

He said: “Following the sale of the other Jung's sites in 2018, our original plan was to close just before the lockdown. However, the unforeseen impact of COVID-19, as experienced by many businesses, caused delays.

“Consequently, after 83 years, Jungs has now closed its retail site in Beaconsfield.

“This decision enables the older generation to retire, while allowing the younger generation to shift their focus to the wholesale bakery business. We want to extend our sincere gratitude to all our customers for their support throughout the many decades.

“The new owners have garnered interest from several parties regarding the site. However, as of now, no final decision has been reached.”

The wholesale bakery providing goods to businesses such as Co-Op, Crazy Bear and Holiday Inn continues to operate.
