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.

I love the bakery - really fresh bread, pies and cakes, baked on the premises every day. Willie's pies are packed with flavour and you are spoilt for choice will all the different varieties of bread. Also has fresh sandwiches. Don't miss this hidden gem...in Russell.More

We got rolls and club sandwiches, cakes and pastries most days to take with us to the beach, or on trips. Delicious and great value.

The smell as you enter says it all. Clearly freshly-baked whatever you order. And tastes delicious. We stopped by on a road trip and had a feast of a lunch by a lake a few hours later.

Used them for buying bread rolls and pies for snacks/lunch well priced and good food. You need to get there early in morning as they close after lunch.

Approached here tentatively, as some reviews indicated high prices, average product. We only purchased cream doughnuts and sourdough bread. Found both to be of good quality and reasonably priced. Other goods on display appeared to be good value prices to us

Stopped in for a quick bite. Pies are reasonably priced and equally savory. Not the best we've ever had, but definitely worth another viist.

Delishous. The owner is a lovely lady. Very clean and fresh food. They also will make a packed lunch with a roll, a sweet and other goodies. They require a days notice for a packed lunch. I’m looking forward to ordering one in the next...few days. They open at 7:30am but close about 2:30.More
