Sandwiches crafted using Milligans bread. You will find only the best products and best ingredients in our stores.


Milligan’s have been serving quality & value for well over 60 years, a dedicated passion for taste driven, good honest ingredients, great products and a first class experience.

Founded in 1946 by Norman Milligan & his wife Joan, the first Milligan’s opened on Elswick Road in Newcastle upon Tyne. Their son Lloyd Milligan soon joined the business and set about expanding the business and raising the Milligan’s brand.

Louise, the granddaughter of Norman undertook the Milligans flagship stores, modernising the brand and raising the company profile. Her determination, strong work ethic and business acumen has driven Milligans forward – launching numerous food outlets, across the North East.

Louises’s philosophy is simple and effective;

“Honest and straightforward old-fashioned service
with a smile and giving people what they want!”

Milligans are a family owned group of very successful local bakery shops across the North East of England, where you enjoy freshly prepared, quality food.

‘In a world that is fast paced, hectic and demanding, our stores work on a basis of sit down, relax, enjoy & let our people look after you!… We believe in our waitress table service ethos. When shopping it’s nice to sit down while we do the rest!’

‘There is nothing worse than standing queuing for coffee or food & then not being able to find a seat, which happens in the national coffee shop chains’.

Milligans have set a whole new standard in customer service, whether you would like to relax & chill, watch the world go by, have a coffee or a quick snack or a delicious filling meal – we cover it all!

With fantastic offers everyday… Milligans is the place to be.
