Dined with friends last week. We have been numerous times over the years when the restaurant has been under different owners. Varied selection on the menu and a good choice of starters/mains. Nice to see that vegetables are included with the main course and not a side dish. Good choice of wines too. One small point both diners who had... More

The Bakehouse is back to its former glory. Under new owners but with the return of the old chefs Gareth and Scott. Ian and Sue have made some pleasant changes to the decor and with the addition of the bar area you can pop in for a drink or one of their cocktails without having a meal. Well with a... More

A large group of us made a reservation. Initially the staff flapped and were trying to convince us to have a set menu. We declined but did offer to give our orders earlier in the day so they could prepare. I can't understand why they were so worried as the restaurant sits a lot of people, so if you can't... More

Love a good selection of gins and they have a brilliant one. And a great selection on the menu. The restaurant was busy, which is a great sign, service was good but the food was just amazing. Steaks from gilmours butchers are always a winner and the port and Stilton sauce was devine

Service good and friendly and food delicious.. Prices quite a bit lower than for a similar restaurant in Edinburgh. So good value for money.. Watch out for parking. West... More
