Customer service

On our visit with friends recently we found the service and food excellent. The Management and staff were very friendly and the steak pie in Belhaven ale tasted superb. I work as a SVQ Assessor in customer service and give the Bakehouse top Marks. Mr W Weir

Returned here after s gap of about a year. It is under new management, people still go due to it's past reputation, but it has changed for the worse, terrible food and poorly trained staff. My wife's meal looked as if it had been left from lunch time and reheated. Instead of asking if we were ready to order, we... More

Visited this Restaurant for lunch today. Very pleasant waiter,polite & prompt in taking our order. We had a starter which was delicious & we were not disappointed with our main course. The owner's wife popped out of the kitchen for a chat....said they had taken over the restaurant in Nov of last year. We will definitely be returning.

My wife and I dined here a few nights ago and to the pleasant surprise there were new owners as last time we went it was under the ownership of Tony Singh and it was nothing to shout about. The new owners have got it down to a fine art the food was excellent and so too was the service!... More

We have been going to the bakehouse regularly over the last few years and enjoyed it hugely up until it came under new ownership. We arrived and were told we had to wait for menus. These took 30 minutes to arrive. We then waited another 30 minutes before any food reached us. We would have walked out but there isn't... More

The Old Bakehouse has gone to the dogs. Previous reviews tell the unflinching story of how this restaurant ranked as one of the best around (under the ownership of Steve and Fiona), and as one of its most frequent customers it breaks my heart to write such a negative review. To kick us off, when you look through the restaurant... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant and it was a great experience. From the time we entered (not having booked) we were made to feel very welcome We were shown to our table promptly and left with the menus to decide our selection. The wine waiter took our drink order and they gave us a few minutes to... More
