It was well worth the drive from Nottingham to Oakham just for lunch. We had Mussels from the starter menue. They were the best I've had in a very long time. It was lovely to sit in the courtyard it felt like being on the continent with all the locals knowing and chatting to each other.

Thank you so much for your lovely review. Our fish and seafood is delivered fresh every day, the mussels are very popular..The courtyard is especially nice this time of the year and it is always a bonus when you can eat al fresco !! I am so glad it was worth the drive ! More

No room for... More

My fiancé and I stayed here or one Saturday night in July. We were attending a wedding which took place just one step across the road in Victoria Hall, so firstly Bakers Yard was extremely convenient for us on this particular occasion. Bakers Yard only has a few rooms, but ours was very nice, modern and clean. We had breakfast... More

We ate there in Saturday in July. We had scallops and chorizo starter. This was delicious and the scallops were perfectly cooked. The pork belly main had tender meat and crispy crackling with the most amazing mustardy sauce. My partners steak was cooked perfectly at medium rare - she noted this is a rare occasion (excuse the pun) Our waitress... More

Came here again, this time for the Father's Day Lunch. Incredible value at £15.95 for 3 courses and a good varied choice. We all had different (1 Beef, 1 Turkey and 1 Cod) and everything was beautifully cooked - they even accommodated my son's request for no marie sauce on the starter! You really can't go wrong visiting Bakers Yard... More

Thank you for your review, I am so pleased that you all enjoyed your Fathers Day lunch with us. It is reassuring to know that people do still appreciate the quality of home made freshly prepared food and your comments are especially welcome as the town recently seems to be overrun with food outlets who only serve microwaved pre packed...

I was invited to this restaurant by some friends for a special event and I enjoyed the food a lot. I had chicken which was beautifully cooked and I thought the combination of flavours were surprising in a nice way. Delicious puddings too ! Nice staff always happy to help.

Excellent environment, service and a very warm welcome. The food was very good, and a very nice Malbec. Caters for children(my 13 year old) with a taste for good adult food was not disappointed!
