Famous Original Selkirk Bannock (400g)

(68 Customer Reviews)

Famous Original Selkirk Bannock (400g)

Our world famous Selkirk Bannocks are the benchmark for all others to be judged, and we believe that none come close.

Handmade to a recipe well over 100 years old which involves long dough fermentation to produce flavours that you would not believe possible from a fruit bread.

Using the sweetest sultanas and lashings of creamy butter, only Alex Dalgetty & Sons know how to make a true Selkirk Bannock.

Best served sliced and spread with butter, or even try it toasted for a change. For something extra special why not try making a sumptuous Bread and Butter pudding.

    Fruity as ever.

  3. Clive Walker (verified owner)

    A present for my Dad, who loved it, especially the generous amount of fruit

  4. Rachel Clark (verified owner)

    Utterly delicious. Only available from you so we buy several at a time and freeze them. We’re always amazed by how good they are and surprised they’re not better known (in England that is, we discovered them whilst on holiday in Scotland )

  5. Carole Sturgiss (verified owner)

    It is so moist and packed full of fruit – really delicious.

  6. June Perks (verified owner)

    It was beautiful. I live on my on own so cannot order too many at one time. I have got one in the freezer and hope that it will OK when I come to eat it. I would recommend this product to anybody, especially with butter on it.

  7. John Morton (verified owner)

    first time we have tried it really enjoyed it loads of fruit inside once we had cut into it ,it didn’t last long it was so good will be sending another order in soon

    Selkirk Bannock is very tasty. Being a Borderer, always loved them, so bought one for my friend, she loves them too.

    I bought Selkirk bannock as a gift but I’ve had it before and it was delicious that’s why I gifted one to a friend. What they think of it I’ve yet to hear.

  19. Oonah Buist (verified owner)

    My whole family loves this at teatime. It’s the best I’ve tasted.

  21. Patricia Moore (verified owner)

    Absolutely delicious

  22. Colin Downey (verified owner)

    Amazing Bannocks. Even more amazing is why trail & climbing magazines have never mentioned them for perfect food for the hills.

  23. susan Allum (verified owner)

    Selkirk Bannock is a very tasty treat indeed. Having visited the Alex-Dalgetty store and purchased bread and a tart, we now purchase from home online.
    We have had an excellent service each time.

  24. Scott Robertson (verified owner)

    I’ve been eating Bannocks since I was a child . They are fabulous. Nothing comes close. My friends all agree. When we are in the Borders we always buy a few to take home.

  25. William Donald (verified owner)

    Great products

  26. Bryn Duncan (verified owner)

  31. Lorna Wheeler (verified owner)

    Superb and a wonderful little treat.! Delicious taste due to its excellent ingredients ,and good visually too so studded with moist fruit. Our first experience of a Bannock but certainly not our last.

    The bannock was a gift for a relative. She absolutely loved it!
    The online ordering was easy and I was able to include a note with the order. Would definitely recommend.

  37. Henry Haslam (verified owner)

    Excellent. Up to the usual standard.

  38. Barry Maurice (verified owner)

    Following our visit to Scotland last summer my wife was absolutely delighted to taste one of your bannocks in Coldstream. So,it seemed appropriate for last Christmas and her recent 92nd. birthday to have a couple of bannocks mailed as gifts. She has been very pleased indeed on both occasions.And I congratulate you on your product. Unfortunately, they are not available here in Somerset and the added postage makes a more frequent purchase rather too costly. Yours, Barry Maurice

  39. Brian Wood (verified owner)

    We have bought it before and it is a family favourite also great value for feeding hungry children after activity

  40. Fiona Elworthy (verified owner)

    Absolutely addictive, great warm or cool, best for me warm with either honey or butter. A great friend of mine also adores it so I am just about to buy 4 more, 2 for her & 2 for me. I remember it from when I was a little person & my granny had some & I loved it then too.

  41. Matt Wilson (verified owner)


  42. Louisa Ormiston (verified owner)

    They very good. Anychance you could do gluten free x

  43. Bridget Cameron (verified owner)

    I am so glad I can buy online as not available to buy here.
    Much better than cake. Delicious :yum:

  44. Elizabeth Simpson (verified owner)

    Eating Selkirk Bannock takes me back to eating afternoon tea at my granny’s house and my English husband loves it too..
    I ordered 2 bannocks this time – one for me and one for my aunt’s 90th birthday and she was delighted with the personalised message you sent her. Thank you all.

  45. Dr Mara Kalnins (verified owner)

    I’ve rated the Selkirk Bannock as excellent (as always) but I may not write an encomium for, or a review of, a business.

  46. Sandie Cummins (verified owner)

    This was a big treat for my husband who is a great fan of the Selkirk Bannock. Full of plump fruit it was hard to resist temptation and not have one wee slice more!!

  47. Andrew Hoskins (verified owner)

    A mini great British classic from the brilliant Dalgetty bakery. This smaller sibling of the 800g Selkirk Bannock is just as perfectly formed. A great treat for elevenses or tea time. A really delicious bannock with lots of juicy fruit. Believe me, it is one of those things that you’ll keep just tidying up a bit until it is all gone.

  48. Colin Stanford (verified owner)

    Thank you for yours brilliant service and very tasty Bannock

  49. David Hutchison (verified owner)

    Taking at bit of an Old Grey Mill Toon to Slough by the way of Selkirk Bannock, which I know from the past will be Super for tea time

  50. Marjorie Grundy (verified owner)

    All the items I ordered were delicious and came very well packaged. I will be ordering again soon

  51. Carolyn Saunders (verified owner)

    Haven’t tried yet as ordered for Xmas.

    Looking forward to trying everything
    A taste of my old home – Scotland

  53. Oonah Buist (verified owner)

    We wanted to introduce our children to one of our all time childhood favourites – the selkirk banoch and had quite some difficulty finding a perfect example, in the south of England. Luckily Alex Dalgetty were able to supply us! They were delicious!

  54. David Nicholson (verified owner)

    As I grew up in Galashiels you’ll not be surprised to hear I always loved your Selkirk Bannock. I still do. And the prompt service was delightful as well. My only gripe would be the cost of postage and packing. £8 is excessive. While Shetland is “off shore” to the rest of the UK we are part of the UK, we use Royal Mail as you do, and, while your packaging was excellent, it hardly justified the cost. I will continue to order from you in this way (because I can’t do without the delicious bannock!) but probably not as often as I might if the cost was less than £12 a time. That’s why I’ve only given 4 stars for an otherwise excellent service. Thank you – Davy

    This fruit bread is the best I have ever eaten – and I’ve eaten a lot! Packed full of fruit and delicious with or without butter. Will be ordering again in due course.

  60. Pearlioz (verified owner)

    I have had many orders with a variety of goods all were great, that is not enough to describe them, it’s like being a kid again biting into them. Love bannock buns, and all other products.

  61. GERALD SMITH (verified owner)

    We have bought your Selkirk Bannocks several times now and would buy no other They are similar to Lancashire Eccles Cakes, the modern version really being a sweet puff pastry current pasty, but far better and more substantial. Even better with butter!

  62. Duncan Brown (verified owner)

    Recently bought three Selkirk Bannocks for my coast to coast and Cairgorm climbing trips. Perfect treat food when you are out on the hills or trecking alongside Hadrian’s Wall. Love it. Thanks guys. Duncan

  63. Elma Macmillan (verified owner)

    First class service. Product as good as I remember it to be.

  64. Colin BARKER (verified owner)

    Bought it for 1st time. Never seen before and have to say it lived up to expectations. So much more I bought some more and for my sons and daughter.
    Will be buying some more.

  65. David Sawyer (verified owner)

    I’ve enjoyed Selkirk Bannock’s from Alex Dalgetty for many years. I’ve bought them on my travels mostly from Tebay Services on the M6, but also from The Moffat Toffee Shop, a butchers in Kelso, and Dobbies Garden Centre in Ayr. I’ve recently tried using and had excellent experiences with the Alex Dalgetty on-line shop.

  66. Sylvia Milne (verified owner)

    We always enjoy your Selkirk Bannock and black bun around Christmas/New Year

  67. Christina Cramb (verified owner)

    I was born in the Borders, but have lived in York for 50 years. Always knew Selkirk Bannocks, but was only reintroduced to them again, last year. Very happy to have found I can get them online . Last consignment was given to friends at Christmas, and everyone thinks they’re delicious!! I’ll be back for more in due course.
    Thank you. Christina.
