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

Great Italian food, with live music! This place seems to go from strength to strength. I do hope the theme night's become a regular occurance. Perhaps once a quarter?

19 of us went to the Old Bakehouse on Sat 10th Sept for a hen party lunch. Food was pre ordered and came as expected for everyone, we were also able to change our desserts if we wanted. The food was excellent, service very attentive and a lovely place for our afternoon celebrations. Thank you.

Cosy and atmospheric - unless you're in what appears to be an extension, which in daylight is over-bright in comparison with the remainder of the restaurant. Extensive menu with many interesting choices. The much vaunted slow-cooked pork belly however, was a little disappointing, much chewier than expected, but edible (the accompanying black pudding mash was very good).The others in my... More

This was a meal to remember for all the right reasons! The food was delicious and beatifullly prepared, combining local Scottish ingredients in original and unusual dishes. The starter of crayfish was light and delicious and the main of venison and stilton pie was to die for. The venison was tender, full of flavour with a subtle hints of the... More

A busy Saturday night with some signs of stress on service but we were under no pressure to leave to turn the table over until they really needed to after our early start. The food was of a good standard and certainly my choice on what was a new menu was tasty and the meal over-all was reasonable value. There... More
