Welcome to Daly Bread
My award-winning micro bakery in Isleworth
My name is Brenda Daly. I am the founder, the baker and chief washer-upper at Daly Bread, Isleworth’s very own micro-bakery. I run my award winning artisan bread bakery and small teaching school from my home in Old Isleworth, West London where I have baked since 2017.
I am passionate about providing good honest bread to my local community and sharing my knowledge of breadmaking with you. I bake to order using high-quality ingredients such as organic flour from Shipton Mill in the Cotswolds.
The Bread Shed
In 2020 I moved to a new home in Old Isleworth with a bigger garden and a good-sized summerhouse which is where I now bake from. We affectionately call this The Bread Shed.
It has been developed to replicate a home kitchen – with a bit more space for all my bread paraphernalia – and space to welcome you on a cosy breadmaking course. Bread courses will resume in autumn 2021.
Shop Local Hounslow
I am one of the many local businesses participating in Hounslow Council’s shop local voucher scheme. Residents of Hounslow Council can redeem their free £20 voucher on freshly baked bread or learning to bake freshly baked bread in a bread class. This initiative was set up to support the local economy to help recovery from the pandemic. Vouchers are being sent to every household in Hounslow from the end of August and need to be used by the end of December. Hounslow Council is the first borough to adopt this scheme to help the local economy – you have a free voucher worth £20 and you can use it to support a local business. Win, win!

Buy my Bread
Browse my bakery to see what I’m baking each week (or sign up to my newsletter to be kept up-to-date), order and pay for your goods. I bake to order every Thursday and occasional special bakes on other days including Old Isleworth Market (see below). Order by Tuesday 9pm for Thursday bake and collection from my home in Old Isleworth or get in touch to discuss other options.
I run the bread stall at the monthly Old Isleworth Market based at Shrewsbury Walk, Old Isleworth TW7 7DE from 10-2pm where you will also find a selection of stalls that sell locally produced / sourced fudge, cakes, jams, chutneys, olives, curry, cheese, fish, flowers, plants plus art, craft, jewellery and environmentally friendly products.
I normally have a selection of sourdough, babka, brioche, buns and focaccia and other bakes…although be warned it is best to order ahead as I usually sell out within the first couple of hours.
Dates for the remaining Saturdays in 2021, are as follows:
11th December Christmas Market
Where else to find me:
I will also have a stall at Orleans House Gallery Shopping Weekend on Saturday 4th December on the riverside at Twickenham. More details to follow shortly.
Made in small batches using organic flours and slowly fermented over 2 days. Flavoursome and a great everyday loaf. Toast and eat with poached eggs or crushed avocado, lime juice and a few chilli flakes. Lush! Available as a large or small loaf. Like to guarantee a regular sourdough? Consider joining Bread Club.
I am registered to accept the Shop Local Vouchers for either bread to order or breadmaking classes. If you are a resident of Hounslow and have received a free Shop Local £20 Voucher this can be redeemed for either of the above. Win, win!
