“Superb, faultless country pub”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

Living in Dorset with friends in Seaford, we were looking for somewhere to meet that was halfway and we came across The Bakers Arms in Duxford

What a fortunate find.

As well as the warmth and charm of the pub itself, the staff were friendly,good humoured and professional. The food was excellent - fresh good quality ingredients perfectly cooked and well presented all four in our party were unanimous in their praise for the food and the service. (I loved the white onion soup!)

Faultless, unreservedly recommended, we will return, hopefully sooner rather than later.

“Great village pub with excellent food”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

This is a real village pub that welcomes its regular and passing drinking customers as well as offering a delicious menu of beautifully presented and prepared cuisine. We are fortunate to have on our doorsrep a place that I Would otherwise be happy to travel to. The staff here are well chosen and make this place as much of a pleasure ti visit as the fiod and superb Bowman ales.

“Never Disappoints”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

A regular visitor to the pub over many years I have never experienced a bad meal. The service is consistently high, attention to detail makes it more than worth my many return visits.
