Quality food and service for very reasonable price

Seven of us dined here on the two courses for ten pounds promotion. This was the first time we had tried this offer, and we were not too sure whether it would be disappointing. We were not disappointed. The pork steak in peppercorn sauce was absolutely delicious, likewise the haddock and chips... read more

This restaurant has an extensive menu, with a good variety of choice. The quality of the meal was excellent, with good efficient service time. Staff on the night were great, friendly and welcoming, especially good for a single female business traveller. It is tucked away just off the High Street, a gem of a place.

What a fab surprise the new Tapas at Bakers Yard is! It feels very grown up (kids can eat from the menu at Bakers Yard opposite) and the food is to die for! First of all, though, my only criticism ... the staff should be more attentive to diners entering the restaurant. It's not immediately apparent whether you should sit... More

On Wednesday this week I met a business colleague for lunch at Bakers Yard, we were on a time time schedule as my colleague on had one hour for lunch. We were greeting by very friendly staff, offered the menu and had the 'specials' of the day shown to us. We both decided on Ham, Egg & Chips. Our drinks... More

The service is good and the menu choice however the menu has not changed in over a year and the quality of the food is average, as is the atmosphere.

It is always nice to receive helpful reviews and feedback, however, I am at a loss to understand why you have given such a poor ill informed review of Bakers Yard eight months after your visit? You may be interested to know that we had a new chef start with us in July 2014. The menu has altered considerably, although... More

Baker's Yard provides a small but varied menu - a better option than an huge choice which often means that dishes are not freshly prepared on the premises. The food here is always expertly cooked and presented. The prawn cocktail was old-school and delicious with it (big juicy prawns, proper Maria Rose sauce and brown bread and butter) - took... More

We had a meal here between 8 and 10.30pm on a Friday evening late October. There were only two other people eating for the first hour in all that time - so not a great atmosphere unfortunately. But we're told that's unusual so maybe we were unlucky. It's a nicely fitted out dining room with a good but limited menu... More

A visit to Bakers Yard with my husband to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary last night and we both had steak and agreed it was the best steak either of us had ever had. Cooked to perfection, the steak melted in your mouth served with hand cut chips and salad. Excellent service by friendly staff in a wonderful atmosphere. I would... More
