I have been a regular customer of the Bakehouse for many years and this was my first visit since the new owners took over. The positives first: very friendly and attentive service, and I quite liked the mild makeover to the interior which gives it a more contemporary feel. I am afraid that is where the good news largely ends.... More

I have now visited the restaurant twice since it has been taken over. On both visits the food was excellent and enjoyed by all in the party. Service was friendly and attentive. Look forward to our next visit!

This was our first visit to the Bakehouse since it has been taken over. I was very excited to go after reading up on the chef and seeing him on Saturday Kitchen. This was our first night out since having a baby so a rare treat. Our welcome was warm and friendly. Once we were seated at our table we... More

This was our first visit since the restaurant changed hands. I am afraid that we won't be going back. Undercooked chips, and salmon and overcooked duck despite being told it would be pink. I decided not to have a desert but my husband and son did. The topping of the tipsy laird was overpowered by whiskey and my husband couldn't... More

Now that this restaurant is under new ownership it may take a while to find its feet and this was reflected in the rather strange mix of dishes on our set menu though to be fair, I did not see the a la carte menu. The service was friendly and attentive - it's so nice to have enthusiastic local staff.... More

With the kitchen now under the direction of Tony Singh, the quality of the food is very high indeed - all of our party of 7, with ages ranging from 14 to 50, very much enjoyed our meal. The starters were all superb and for mains, the punjabi salmon in particular was delicious. It was also great to see a... More

Indian touches to a traditional menu and it worked well. Service was great. Speedy but unobtrusive and when we wanted to carry on talking with our dining companion after we'd finished no one disturbed us. Restaurant was full and obviously getting popular locally.

an original bakehouse with lots of history, now converted into a warm cosy restaurant. Based in the lovely village of west linton, time to chill out and look around this quiet place. Lovely people and children friendly. The restaurant has a varied menu of good quality food served by smiling attentive staff who make you feel at home.I am a... More

We live locally, have visited The Old Bakehouse a few times over the years, and have seen it change hands and décor. Four of us went for Sunday lunch--we were eager to try it again after it's most recent reinvention--I believe it only reopened again on May 24 2014. Anyway, we booked and arrived on schedule. We were greeted warmly... More

Our local restaurant in the village has been taken to a new level. All food is fresh, prepared on-site and the quality/presentation is first class. Service is excellent with a thoroughly professional management team overseeing the needs of customers and directing staff. Menu is imaginative , with creative use of spices without losing sight of some the local favorite items... More
