Looking for a last minute table, we booked at the Old Bakehouse, one of our local restaurants and which had visited on a number occasions in the past, not realising that it was under new ownership. What a meal: haggis, tatties and neeps pakora followed by Tony's signature Punjabi salmon, washed down with chocolate soup and breads. Wines selected by... More

Visited here for a birthday celebration - menu was far more extensive and reasonably priced than I had expected. The food was phenomenal from start to finish, the decor and atmosphere is unpretentious and just right. The staff were friendly, attentive, humorous - as you'd expect from Tony Singh's establishment. Overall, I can't wait to go back and highly recommend... More

We have been to the New old Bakehouse a few times now since Tony has taken over. Every time we have been the food has been lovely and service has been good. Recently we have been during the week for the 2 courses for £10 or 3 courses for £13 which is amazing value for the quality of food. Only... More

Went here for the offer which gives three courses for £13 from 12- 6 pm Wednesday to Friday. Great offering, portion controlled at this price but well presented from a set menu which still gives enough choice for a light meal. Staff very welcoming and friendly..... Can't understand some of the previous comments!

The Old Bakehouse is now under the highly skilled and competent command of Tony Singh. The restaurant has been given a new look and is now a bit brighter and modern looking. Some may mourn the passing of the old, "clubby" and dimly lit restaurant that it once was but I reckon the new decor suits rather well. The restaurant... More

This was our first trip to the Bakehouse since it changed hands earlier this year. Overall, we found our experience disappointing. The decor is now rather stark compared to the warm, intimate surroundings of the previous version. The front-of-house welcome was lukewarm and we really didn't feel very welcome. My wife had the fish of the day - a small... More

Tony and his team made our anniversary meal amazing, had a laugh with the staff and tony. Black Forrest Gateau Cocktails are deadly brilliant. Thanks again for a great meal and to tony for signing our books

Stumbled on this wonderful restaurant by chance. Staying in West Linton for the Commonwealth Games. How lucky we were to find it.Delicious food enjoyed by our whole party and gluten free options too.

The first impression was a bit mixed, as we were shown to our tables and invited to choose where we sat in a rather charmless way - just a slightly unfortunate manner, not deliberately unpleasant, but it made me wonder whether the front-of-house role had been given to the best-equipped member of staff. The inside of the restaurant has been... More

Recently had an excellent meal, served by friendly, efficient staff in a relaxed atmosphere. Tony Singh's new restaurant is all we expected it to be. Best meal we've had in a while.
