  1. Janice Thomas

    This bread flour was a bit of a discovery and one i shall be reordering. It makes really tasty, nutty flavoured bread with a great texture.

  2. colin

    makes a great loaf

  3. Sylvia Lawson

    What a great product, along with the others in the range. I have tried them all and had great success with every loaf.

    Only problem is, availability in my area!

    I will certainly be looking out for them again.

  4. Anne Chivers

    Great for making Soda Bread. It is a shame I cannot get it locally. Got one bag from Aldi to try, went back two days later for more and guess what – it had all gone.

  5. Bill Longworth

    First discovered the “Eight Grain flour”, at Aldi on special offer. I bought a 1.5kg bag and made a loaf. This is the best bread flour that used. Just received my second order 16kg bag, long may the mill continue.

  6. Nadine Herrington Porter

    This flour is amazing. All of the flour selections are marvelous. We will be visiting the Mill Shop soon as Aldi doesn’t have any more!

  7. Andrew Morgan

    I use it in a Panasonic machine makes a great loaf all the family adore it

  8. Jim Porter

    Made the first loaves today. Unfortunately I had to go out before trying it but it looks fantastic. I’ll be having some with my dinner though.

  9. Anthony O’Sullivan

    I started my own sour dough culture about six months ago,just started using this flour for my sourdough bread. It makes the best loaves ever. Compared to the commercial flours I’ve been using. Thanks.

  10. Joanne

    Hi, i followed the bread machine recipe offered on this site for the 8 grain loaf and the bread just didn’t work. The recipe suggests a 5 hour setting which my machine to my knowledge doesn’t have. I have a Morphy Richards Fastbake machine, can anyone recommend a recipe please?

  11. Lana Petrie

    Hello Joanne,

    I am sorry to hear about this. If you email this issue to, we can then send it off to our Technical Sales Manager, who will be able to help you.

    Love these flours and some Asdas stock it. It’s on offer too.

  13. Pete

    I first found this brand of flours in Aldi when I purchased the Cotswold Crunch.It made a lovely granary style loaf in my bread maker – of course ‘granary’ is a trademark. I bought the wholemeal flour and made dough in the bread maker before my first ever attempt at making burger buns – there was honey in the recipe and this shone through making a delightful bread. I ate the first (rather large) bun as it cooled without any extras – it was just moorish. I have since made a small loaf from their ‘eight seed flour’ and this is just as scrummy. I love it toasted for breakfast. I am stuck for choice now – ‘granary’, seeded or simple brown – maybe I should ask the audience. Whatever, it’s a winner and will definitely rise to the occasion.

  14. Margaret Gallagher

    I bought this flour at Aldi, use it regularly for my Irish soda bread, best I’ve ever used! Will I still be able to get at Aldi in North London. Nono there all week. Love the 8grain . All delicious Thank you!

  15. Lana Petrie

    Hi Margaret,

    Our flour in Aldi are only special offers, although we will be back with a new offer in August!

    You can always buy our flour online, or via Amazon where the delivery charge is cheaper. However, we do have a “Local Stockists” map that you can use to find the nearest place that stocks our flour.

    Many thanks

  16. Jez

    First bought this at aldi and we were amazed at how good this is sadly aldi stopped selling it so we bought a 16kg sack direct from fwp Matthews really pleased to be able to get this and we would recommend anyone to try it you will not be disappointed

  17. Anne Bell

    Like other reviewers, I buy this flour whenever it pops up as a special buy in Aldi. I use it to make a Swedish style rye and caraway bread from Ruby Tandoh’s “Crumb” book. I just replace the 600g of a mix of three different flours with 600g of Cotswold Eight Grain.

    Yesterday I won the cup for the best exhibit of bread in the West Yorkshire Organic show with this loaf made from Eight Grain. Thank you.

  18. Lana

    Congratulations! I would love to post this on our Social Media platforms if this is ok with you? If so, please email me directly –

    I look forward to hearing from you

    I took delivery of the 5 bag variety pack yesterday and thought I’d try this in my Panasonic SD-2501 machine. It smells like heaven in my house at the moment. I notice some of the above had trouble with their machines, here is what I did.

    350g flour, 7g dried yeast, 7g salt, splurge of olive oil, 210ml water. chucked it all in machine in that order and set the machine to medium size extra crusty white loaf, perfection.

    Can’t wait to try the other flours.

  20. John Hawkins

    Was recommended this flour to make our own bread by My Weight Matters run by Essex County Council.Originally got from Aldi but as other reviewers have said only available as special offers.Since then I have ordered direct from FWP Matthews.Sevice is briliIant. Flour is brilliant and we now have bread that is light and tasty.By the way we are still losing weight.

  21. Peter

    I have been using this for several years, and would have to be chained up to stop me buying it! Because our local stockist sometimes has had problems in getting it for me just when I want it, I now buy direct from Mattews – and the price including delivery costs works out as nearly the same, overall.

    I originally used a bread maker, but the loaves were a bit too big for just the two of us, so I now mix it in a machine, and then prove and bake it in a fan-oven, two 1-and-a-bit kg tins at a time – one to eat now, the other in the freezer. I never am disppaointed with the taste & texture – and all our visitors of all ages are always impressed.

    Here’s my recipe then – 945 gms flour into mixing bowl and mix at setting two with 2 tsp sugar : 2.75 salt ; 7 gms dried fast action yeast (1 sachet) : 4 tbsp olive oil. Slowly add 570 gms slightly warmed water and mix for 7 minutes. Prove in tins in pre-warmed oven at about 80 degree for 35 minutes. Then remove to area above main oven and heat latter to 180 degrees (fan assisted) which gives it about 45 minutes proving altogether – bake for 35 minutes.


  22. Gwyneth Wynn Uí Ghaora

    Wonderful flour – lovely taste. Works perfectly in the bread machine on the wholemeal setting.

  23. Mrs Gillian Daker

    This is the second lot of flour I have had, and would recommend it to anyone. I still make bread the old fashioned way, and have had no problems with it at all. The order arrived quickly, and the price is very competitive.

  24. Peter Mayle

    Makes a real tasty loaf, currently our favourite flour.

  25. Tessa W

    I love this flour – it makes a foolproof loaf in my bread maker, is seedy and tasty without being too heavy.

  26. John Lennox

    Love this flour , makes great loaves in a bread maker.
