Very nice Bar/Restaurant
Varied and interesting menu
Good food at reasonable prices
Attentive staff, nice ambience.

The big downside is the almost total lack of car parking.
Arriving with my partially disabled elderly mother we could find nowhere to park and were not able to access the restaurant to even drop her off without a long walk.
Upon enquiring as to availability of car parking we were told to use the Residents Permit Holders Only parking but this is still quite far away and comes at the risk of a £100 penalty charge.
We would love to return but being unable to park close enough means we have to consider elsewhere.

Good afternoon and thank you for taking the time to leave us some feedback. There is work going on at the moment to increase the size of the car park just behind our building, however we realise this can currently be an issue at times and for this i apologise. I'm glad that you enjoyed your visit other than this, we have been working hard on extra training for staff and getting our offering right, so i'm please to hear this has been noticed.

I have already written to the Manager (no reply so far) as the food was below standard. We ordered the fish platter and the whitebait were very over cooked and nearly burnt. The fish goujons were so greasy the oil ran off the plate onto our table. The bread didn't appear to be that fresh either. We pointed this out to our waitress who agreed the whitebait looked over cooked, yet nothing was done about it.
On the whole a poor experience and we will not be returning.

Hi Sue, thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. Apologies that i didn't get to your email on Saturday, i hope you can appreciate it was a busy day for us here, however i have since replied. Since your email I have issued more training for the staff so that they have a better idea of how to deal with issues when they arise as how this was handled was not up to our usual standard of service. I hope you will give us another try moving forward.

Two large groups merged, very loud, banging on tables. No social distancing between the groups and mixing with each other

Responded on 16 December 2020

Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback, i was aware of the banging noise on the day of your visit and please rest assured if it had happened more than once, the staff would have said gone over. I have spoken to the team, who don't remember anyone mixing, if we have missed this on occasion i can only apologise and we will try to be more vigilant moving forward. Hopefully this doesn't taint your views of our offering and the work the staff do to ensure everyone feels safe and welcome.

Myself, my Mum & my Sister visited Bakers on Thursday for a lunchtime catch up! We had hot drinks and food :) My Mum & I had a sandwich & a wrap respectively and my Sister has the Fish Platter! All the food was really well presented, tasted lovely (very fresh) and the portion size was generous! My Sister loved hers but struggled to finish and my Mum had some of hers wrapped up to take home!! Service is great and they have put lots of COVID measures in place to make you feel safe! We also got 25% discount on the food which was fab! Would definitely recommend and will be booking again!! :)

Lovely atmosphere, albeit probably because of the lack of customers the acoustics were poor. The food was nice with lots of different and good choices, pleasant service, but unfortunately let down by order errors and slowness.

My friend and I met up for a long awaited catch up! We both had coffee, I had cake and my friend had a yummy wrap! We found the staff very friendly and we sat upstairs, on gorgeous velvet sofas looking out onto the Marina! The food & drinks were all lovely :) I have just booked to go back for lunch with my Mum & Sister!! :)

An unusual & historic building, with old baker's ovens on view. The service & Covid precautions were excellent. We had a selection of tapas & a glass of house wine.....all very good. It was not busy the evening we went but tables were well spaced.
