Myself and boyfriend ate here, on our last night in the area, the staff were friendly and the ambience and menu had a great selection, when the starters came they were really nice I had the mushroom soup which was lovely. For the main we were not so happy, we both had steak, mine was very average and his was... More

We visited the Old Bakehouse as we had noticed it was under new management - on a visit under the previous ownership we had food which was OK, so were hoping for better on this occasion. The restaurant was busy but despite there being several large groups the atmosphere was relaxed rather than overbearing. Service was friendly and attentive, especially... More

This was our first visit here since it changed hands. We had heard mixed reports but we were very impressed. The interior isn't as homely & warm as it used to be but the service was good and we really enjoyed our meal. My husband had the haggis pakora, chicken New Yorker then the sticky toffee pudding. I had the... More

Yes it's a little out of the way unless you live in West Linton, trust me it's well worth the effort. The menu is short but it is better to do little well than a lot poorly. Great invention shown in many of the dishes with a real flair displayed by Tony. Staff were up with the best around.

Four of us had lunch at the Old Bakehouse yesterday following a friends recommendation, but were a bit apprehensive as I had very briefly read some poor reviews prior to leaving Melrose. A long way to travel for a possible poor meal. We had three courses each, bottle of wine and one coffee. Three of us had meals from the... More

My husband and I ate dinner here recently. Short(ish) menu with seasonal offerings with lots of tempting dishes. I had the chicken korma and my husband the lamb rogan josh. Both were delicious with rice and poppadums and sauces on the side. Even though we were full we both went for desserts as they sounded too good to pass up.... More

We enjoyed our trip to this out-of-the-way village spot on a windy Thursday evening. Cordially greeted, we were seated in an understated and comfortable dining room. The menu was far more reasonable and expansive than similar places - it's nice to see a restaurant confident enough to incorporate easy going fare like burgers alongside the signature dishes and finer cuisine....
