Our Story

Where it all Started

Mamars, initially established by Sonia as ‘Mamar’s Bread and Cheese’ in July 2019 on Warrington Market, offering freshly made and baked bread and an extensive range of Artisan Cheeses, quickly gained a loyal following during the pandemic.

Recognising the need for a larger space, Mamars found a new home at The Old Bank. This historic Grade II listed building had been empty for almost 12 years, having operated as a bank between 1937 and 2007.

At Mamars, bread takes centre stage

With our sourdough starter, affectionately named Doris, celebrating her 8th year and the range of Breads on offer growing and changing all the time.

From Sourdough to Yeasted to Sweet Breads to Cheese Stuffed! All our bread, cakes, cookies, and pastries are handmade in our shop using traditional recipes and without any additives.

In addition to our exceptional bread, Mamars sources Artisan Cheeses directly from reputable Cheesemongers, offering an extensive selection for all Cheese enthusiasts.

But our passion for quality extends beyond Bread and Cheese

We also offer a wide range of other delicatessen and retail products, including cured meats, freshly roasted coffee, teas, chutneys, jams, cider, wines, beers, and more.

This forms the basis of our fresh food menu too – Bread, Cheese and Meats is the focus for everything we do! From an outstanding range of Cheese Stuffed Toasties, to fresh breakfasts, to Cheese and Charcuterie Boards to a yummy cake. Served with smoothly roasted Coffees and fresh Teas or something a little stronger from our range of locally sourced wines, ciders and craft beers – we have even made a Sourdough Bread Beer with our best buds 4Ts Brewery!

In 2024, we moved The HiveWA1, Sankey Street, Warrington.

Mamars aims to be more than just a food and drink destination. Both Sonia and Sarah worked in the public sector for more years than they care to remember!

Once a public servant, always a public servant, they have carried this ethos into their business and like all good businesses everywhere, allowed it to grow positively. With a strong community focus, we have created a comfortable, inclusive space that embraces diversity and supports various local organisations and charities.

Our Community & Events

Mamars directly plays host to various community events, we offer baking classes and clubs, put on cheese and wine nights, deliver saturday afternoon live music sessions, and run supper clubs, contributing to the cultural vibrancy of Warrington Town Centre.

We also offer the space for Private Hire for your celebrations and for Community Support Groups in need of somewhere to meet, rehearse, offer support from. This has meant we have been able to meet the standards required for a Community Interest Company (CIC), and we are classified as non-profit making as we reinvest everything back into our Community Interest Company. We have established several collaborative activities with a number of organisations dedicated to mental fitness, well-being, social causes and most important of all – Community.
