Fantastic food,excellent service, friendly staff. Refurbished to a high standard since our last visit. Fresh, light and airy. At last a wine list that included NZ wine. Such a pity we were the only people in there on a Friday lunch time, but it was just before Xmas. Well worth the drive down country lanes.

A lovely evening. We were two friends catching up so wanted a natter and a good meal. Seating is extremely comfortable - some of the best I've encountered. Food is delicious and a good choice. Service was a little bit slow on occasion which was annoying; I don't mean how long the food took to come as I take that as a plus that the dishes are being cooked to order but actually getting the waiters to notice us when we wanted to order another drink etc - especially as despite being a Saturday evening it was rather quiet. The only slight downside was a couple of young children on a nearby table who were a bit loud which begs the question what the heck are children doing in a nice restaurant late on a Saturday evening.... However, that's not the restaurant's fault.

The choice for each course was good. The food and service were very good. The only criticism is that , perhaps as starters, some tended to be large enough to be considered as a main course for those with smaller appetites.

The Bakery has recently had a very subtle and classy makeover! It looks fabulous! The best bit is the menu which has also been updated! The selection is amazing and I highly recommend the seared scallops starter and Portuguese skewer main! The chicken just melts in your mouth! If you haven’t been for a while visit you won’t be disappointed! Highly recommended!

We went for Easter Lunch with the family. We did have a nice lunch, but it felt a bit rushed, with being pressured to order our meal in the bar, even though we'd arrived well before the booked table time of 1.45. Some of the food was very good, and up to the standard we expect ( e.g. the starters) but we were a bit disappointed with the main courses, e.g the fish had a very strong pesto sauce and the lamb was not as tender as usual. However we really like the Bakery and expect this was just a blip due to it being a busy weekend.

Haven’t been here for a while which I now regret as we had a cracking Sunday lunch. It was Mother’s Day and as you’d expect, it was busy but, the atmosphere was great. Three of us and three courses each plus a bottle of Prosecco along with pre dinner drinks and bread. All lovely, plentiful and filling and all in for £125. This in my opinion is good value for money. Thank you Andrew and the team... see you soon.

the bakery is tucked away in tatsfield and offers very good food. although the menu isn't large, there is a nice choice, although as a fish eater, there isn't quite so much of a choice in the mains. interesting starters, with just a slight twist. service is friendly and efficient. good choice of wines and bubbles by the glass. always good.
