This restaurant was recommended to us when we stayed in Penzance, and it was excellent. We ordered steak and I can honestly say, it was the most delicious and tender steak I have tasted. The house wine was also of a very high standard. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the service good. It goes without saying that I... More

My husband booked us in for our 25th wedding anniversary with our 2 sons and one of their friends. Very friendly owner who on finding out it was a special occasion sprinkled little hearts on our table, nice touch. She also kept an eye out for our sons as they haven't been there before and it is a bit out... More

Came here for our anniversary and I chose from the special menu which was on offer. But the food I had was incredible and I would have chosen if not on the menu. My husbands steak was done to perfection. Highly recommended.

Went to the Bakehouse - the waitress said they were expecting a quiet night and sent a member of staff home and then a few people came in without booking (like us!) She said I would have to wait for the chicken as it was cooked fresh. Had to wait a while, but it was so delicious, it was worth... More

We had a very good meal at the Bakehouse. Swish but relaxed atmosphere, very attentive and friendly staff and very good food. The fish (cod) was the best we had while in Penzance and the rib-eye steak was excellent. One slight disappointment were the sweats: meringue with berries and Summer crumble, neither worked for us. But still very much enjoyed... More

I particularly love the Razor Clams they serve here. Nice atmosphere, though the bench seating is rather uncomfortable. Always worth booking in advance as it gets busy.

My wife and I each enjoyed an excellent ribeye steak dinner at the Bakehouse restaurant tonight. It took three tries to get mine just right, but they were as cooperative as could be about it. When the steak finally came correctly, it was delicious, and I told the hostess so. When the bill came, they had comp'd my steak. Very... More

If you find yourself in Penzance, Cornwall make sure you book a table at the BAKEHOUSE where you can be assured of great food and excellent attentive (but not too overbearing) service. Don't miss out on the scrumptious chicken livers with rasperberries or indeed the yummy pork schnitzel. be warned leave yourself room for some very naughty desserts as well.... More
