Where to refuel during your Christmas shopping

Christmas shopping is an annual task, that can prove tiresome and stressful. Fighting the queues in order to tick the items you need off your list. The children hassling you to show interest in their most wanted toy or let them meet Santa and Rudolph. There comes a point where you just need a break.

Looking for a place to refuel? GSM can help! We have two tasty clients based in London who will be offering their usual products as well as some festive additions. Both would be delighted to welcome you and your family while you rest and recuperate.

Bread Ahead Bakery is a brand founded by baking enthusiast Matthew Jones. Since opening their flagship store at Borough Market in 2013, Matthew and his team have expanded their business and opened two further sites. The first on Pavilion Road in Chelsea. The second on Beak Street in Soho.

All three bakeries offer a range of snacks and drinks, suitable for all the family. There are even gluten-free options for those who require them. As for specialties, theirs are doughnuts, which the team at GSM would strongly recommend.

If you’re looking for something more substantial, Market Hall, West End is the place to go. Located just off Oxford Street in the old BHS store, this newly opened facility has transformed the Ghost of Christmas Past into the Ghost of Christmas Present and a vibrant food hub. Rest assured as there’s no spiritual activity to wave off. Instead, wave hello to a cultural atmosphere.

At Market Hall, West End, you’re not short of choice, thanks to the presence of eleven traders offering food from all four continents and drinks in four bars, one of which is located on the heated roof terrace. This facility is the largest in the Market Hall franchise, set over three floors. There’s an internet TV studio to keep the kids entertained and a demo kitchen for the adults to gain last minute inspiration for their Christmas menu. This is the perfect location for all of the family to relax and refuel.


We hope that this article has helped you to look forward to Christmas shopping rather than seeing it as a chore. If you visit either of our clients’ venues and choose to promote your attendance on social media, tag @GSMFinance and use the hashtag #GSMChristmas.
