Nice food. Staff not v friendly

Starter crab claws. They were just ok. Main was grilled hake with creamed leek and this was beautiful. Staff don't make much of a effort to welcome you. Overpriced but nice.

Me and my girlfriend went to Lord Baker's on a Sunday night, no reservation needed as town was nearly empty. We both went for sole special, but were told there is not enough and we'd get some hake with sole. While I do like hake, it is not what I wanted, and sole is better fish, I felt this could... More

On arriving to Lord Bakers the owner sat us down and seemed pleasant enough - he did however bring down the wrong drink spilling some of what was a Guinness ( I had ordered a Carlsberg) over the table and not cleaning it up. After being informed that some of our requests were no longer on the menu we ordered... More

We entered the restaurant purely for a drink as it is the oldest pub in Dingle to find that we were also in a Restaurant. The owner was extremely friendly and given that most restaurants were closed after the new year period, had an extensive menu. Food was good and we were given a quiet table which had been held...

We ate crab claws & steak. Food was excellent. Crab claws were delicious, cooked to perfection. Steak was tasty, would have preferred the option of a fillet but was good for the cut considering it was a sirloin. Would dine here again. Service was good, owner was very friendly & welcoming!

On our last night in Dingle, we received a recommendation to go to Lord Bakers...the oldest restaurant in Dingle and we were not disappointed! The atmosphere, the impeccable service, and the delicious food made this a night to remember! Fish and crab was chosen and devoured by all four of us for it was the best I have ever tasted!... More
