Plenty character, good service and food

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.

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.

Enjoyed a lovely family meal on Sunday evening. Starters of haggis pakora, bruschetta, pate and mushrooms were all excellent. Lovely steaks and all other mains really enjoyed. Friendly atmosphere and the bill was very reasonable. Well worth a visit.

We originally had made our booking with the previous owner and were a little concerned at the change of management so close to Christmas. We had a warm welcome from Mark, Maddie and Carol. I had requested an alternative melon starter for 2 of our group, due to dietry requirements, with the previous management and confirmed it with the new... More

For the main we were not so happy, we both had steak, mine was very average and his was... More
