Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We are very disappointed that you feel that we rip our customers off as this is not the case. Our Steak pies are made from 100% scratch ingredients, using only the best suppliers, and all hand made from the pastry to filing them with chunks...More

Similar fare to Greggs. Is anything actually baked in shop or does it came part cooked from the main factory ? Typical quality which seems to be the norm for much of Scotland.More

While staying in Elgin I would drop by for a daily fix of ham and salad rolls and maybe the occasional sausage roll. Always fresh and very well made. Ladies who work there are friendly and can knock up a roll in the blink of...an eye.More

Have driven past the bakery on several occasions when visiting my parents in Elgin but never visited. Dropped in past this weekend for filled rolls for lunch and cakes for my parents. Everything was excellent and my parents thoroughly enjoyed the cakes.

On our way to Inverness, we stopped here for lunch. Parking in the small car park, we entered the wee bakery and were served quickly. All clean and tidy, with busy, efficient staff. I decided on pie options, which were just fine.

We stopped here briefly on our way to Inverness Airport. The building itself was situated near the turning to the Recycling Centre in Elgin. Ample parking was available with access from two different roads. The items we ordered were decent and hearty, but not faultless....Both of our Coffees were really good but my wife thought her Pastries were a little bit overcooked. I had no issues with my Sausage Roll or Chicken Curry Pie, although the latter could have done with more filling. That aside, a massive thumbs up! The staff were very friendly and accommodating throughout our visit. The prices were reasonable with our overall order being around the £10.00 mark. Good, honest food from a well run local bakery!More

This the name our daughter gave it but it is a GOOD place. It is always busy and offers a great selection of take away options. The cakes are great but the sandwiches look fantastic as they are mostly made from fresh. The staff are...always cheery and attentive and make you laugh.

Can’t believe in all the years I’ve never been to harry gows! Plenty on offer from baguettes, sandwiches, panini, toasted, cake, pastries. I opted for a sausage roll and curried lentil soup! Amazing! I’ve never tried curried lentil soup before so this was a first...and it was delicious! Full of flavour! As was the sausage roll. And very reasonably priced. Highly recommend a visit here. Will be back tomorrow to try one of their lovely looking cakes.More
