New Owners - GREAT!

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!... read 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

First time I've been to The Old Bakehouse & it was not a dissappiontment! The food was fabulous with everything made inhouse from the 'ugly bread' with starter to the 'highland' shortbread with coffee and all with great presentation and friendly staff This is a wee gem in West Linton and well worth a try. I will definately be back.

My partner and I visited the Old Bakehouse this weekend - we had previously dined here last year under the previous owner and when ownership changed we decided to try it out. The positives - it's a quaint little restaurant with lots of character. The wine was good - we had the malbec at £24 a bottle. The wine list... More

Oh dear. Had dinner here last night with my partner and friend, made a reservation; our table wasn't ready despite the restaurant being very quiet. Poor menu choice for vegetarians (one of which was macaroni cheese - not what one wants when dining out on a Friday night). 2 of us had sauteed mushrooms as a starter which was mediocre... More

Had lunch recently at The Old Bakehouse, which is under new management. The menu is varied and reasonably priced. Food was very good. Service was a little slow whether this was because of the kitchen or the fact there were only two people serving. .We would definitely go back.
