Skinners home bakey bread is A1...and their Smartcarbs LOW GI bread has to be the best ever, becasue it truly is 'SmartCarbs' and non-fattening and suitable for Diabetics, and for Anyne else it also tastes 100% A1. And the staff are great too. Of course EVERYONE in Holywood is great!!

Skinners does the best German Biscuits in Holywood by a long shot! Also it has a massive range of other buns and pastries. A very good all round bakery!

I decided to give Skinners another go after my last review and I'm pleased to report that the problems I had with it before appear to have been resolved. The raw meats were no longer stored right beside the bakery goods. My partner bought some of the bacon to cook at home and said it was the best he'd ever... More
