Welcome to The Secret Bakery Harrogate

We love what we do – creating real bread, using flour without commercial additives and improvers is great fun and we believe that flows through into the flavour, structure and amazing quality of our bread!

The Secret Bakery artisan bakery lies in the outskirts of Harrogate town centre, on Knaresborough road, but that’s not where we started!

The bakery itself started in Liz’s kitchen at home. In June 2016 Liz opened her home up for the first time and invited a few neighbours to sample Real Bread, traditionally made! Word spread and over the coming weeks there was a queue of regulars down the hall waiting for their Saturday goods!

In January 2018 it was time to move into premises, which Liz had mixed feelings about, loving the cottage industry that had developed, but the house was not full and there was not room to expand!

This has allowed us to offer delicious lunches, coffees and cakes. So we now have a small café, offer a range of delicious sandwiches, salads and quiches to eat in or take away. We also have a range of sweet treats to tempt your taste buds.


“Oh my goodness!! This was my first visit today after a recommendation from a friend. Absolutely fabulous delicious bread. Today we tried chocolate bread and cheesy bread … and I also managed a taste of focaccia… divine. Won’t be my last visit either. Can thoroughly recommend. Place your orders people!” Veronica Jackson
