Really fancied a traditional roast dinner. We were not disappointed, the old bakehouse is the go to place, superb roast beef with all the trimmings and outstanding value for money. Cannot fault the service,a grand selection of traditional beers and single malts. Just one tiny thing is if you are seated "under the stairs" on a very cold day outside... More

All our 4 meals were cooked to perfection and served piping hot. The service was excellent being prompt and friendly. The unique cosy atmosphere of the restaurant added to the occasion. First class dinning experience. Thank you to the owners Sue and Ian and all the staff.

Having heard great things about the new owners at the Bakehouse, we finally got round to visiting tonight. And I am SO glad we did. From the warm welcome and roaring fire to the lovely, stylish decor and extensive specials menu, our hopes were building that we may be in for a good evening. Starters of haggis croquettes and crayfish... More

Bakehouse is now back what it does best. One of those good things is Sunday brunch. They offer a great bacon, sausage breakfast, plus a veggie breakfast too. It's always very well cooked and presented. It's a tad pricey but it's really good. Big pot of tea or coffee with it would make it great value and encourage you back.... More

Popped into this place yesterday for a bite to eat with family. The minute you walk in you are welcomed with a big smile on the staffs face and taken through to your seat. Beautiful old building, lovingly redecorated but keeping true to the original building as much as possible. There was a great open fire as you walk in... More

It was very busy but the service was still exceptional and the staff still gave us their full attention. It was cosy inside and the restaurant is full of character. We... More

We moved to West Linton in July 2015 and experienced the Bakehouse under its previous ownership, which was OK. Not 'wow', but fine. Ian and Sue took it over in 2016, and are quickly gaining a reputation for great service. The food is really good, the drinks are superb (with a fantastic range of whiskies and gins, and some really... More
