    Once again, we had a wonderful meal at The Bakehouse. My gazpacho was outstanding- cool and beautifully flavoured. My partner tends to choose seafood here so she said the hake dish was great and well presented. I really enjoyed my steak and our desserts were tasty. The meal was excellent value with quality ingredients cooked and presented perfectly,

    Well, I am a very fussy person with my food, as I love to cook myself and know a thing or two about good food! But this place is the bees knees! Best restaurant I have ever eaten in. Service was amazing too. Such a great place. We defiantly will be back!

    Food, all three courses excellent plus an exceptional rose wine. Service however not quite up to standard-staff should know not to walk past tables where the plates are finished when empty handed. Also got the impression that locals get favoured treatment. However would not hesitate to dine there again.

    Really delicious food and good wine. The staff were charming and helpful, and made me feel genuinely welcome. Not cheap, but worth the money spent. As a solo traveller I will certainly feel happy to return next time I'm in the area. The restaurant is tucked away down a little courtyard off Chapel Street, very pretty.

    My wife’s vegetarian version of the curry was served complete with mussels. No problem, the food was changed quickly. My rib eye stake was done to perfection. Very tasty. We chose not to have the starter and asked for two cheese boards. And we waited and waited and gave up and asked. It took an absolute age to get the bill. Even after asking for it for a second time, we waited. I contemplated just walking out and forcing the situation that way. My wife put her coat on still the card reader did not arrive. The service ruined what should have been an excellent evening out. The two wait staff were run off their feet. They were working flat out. But, perhaps the restaurant is understaffed.
