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

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
