Glanmore's BakeryIn 1980, he opened a small bakery in Trethomas with his wife Lynne and following its success they opened a larger bakery in Caerphilly in 1983.
After qualifying, their son Russell came into the business and in 1995 Glanmor’s Tearooms with its famous waitress service was opened in Castle Court Shopping Centre.


When Glanmor sadly passed away in 2002, Lynne and Russell continued with the business.


Lynne Evans said:

Russell and I have stayed true to my husbands values and high standards. We still bake the majority of cakes we sell in Glanmor’s Tearooms and our fresh bread doesn’t contain any additives.
