Lidl shoppers could soon be snapping up bargains amid the heady aroma of freshly baked bread.

The German discounter is poised to begin rolling out in-store bakeries across all of its 580 UK stores after successful trials in Newcastle. A spokeswoman said the in-store bakery “had gone really well” but could not reveal exactly when the rollout would begin.

However, a store manager on Lidl’s new Facebook page said “all stores will have bakeries very soon” in response to a customer asking why Lidl stores in Ireland had the bakeries but UK stores didn’t.

  • The Lidl bakery is excellent. Particularly, the fantastic Rye bread.When will Nuneaton's Lidl get it's own bakery?

    Well done Lidl.

  • The local store is now up and running with its bakery, The Rye bread is great - what about the other 300 German breads? 2 to 10 more different breads will make a big difference. You can do it Lidl.

  • I first saw the instore bakeries of Lidl at their Benwell Store in Newcastle in the North East of England earlier this year. I am a Scot, and I have a local Lidl store at the bottom of my street where I live in Dalry, North Ayrshire. It never had an instore bakery until now and it has just opened a few days.

    I have bought lovely warm piping hot freshly baked bread like Tiger Loafs and Tin loafs and their apple turnovers are delicious. The bread is excellent for having homemade soup in a winters day.

    This was quite handy for local consumers because we just had one of our local bakers shop close down a couple of months ago. The food from the instore bakery is of the highest quality. I can't wait to go back to my local store to try more.

    My local store has become a lot of busier now due to the instore bakery being there. I think Lidl are now on a winner with the instore bakeries. If you have not tried them, then I urge you to go there soon , hoping that you too will enjoy the Lidl Instore Bakery Experience.
