Used to come here with my family as a child and came back for my Mums birthday. Even better than I remember, great Sunday lunch and wonderful service. Will definitely be returning.

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.

This was an ideal place for friends from London and Kent to meet up. We had a nice, big, round table which made it easy to talk and we really enjoyed our choices of starters and main course.

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.

First time at The Bakery on a quiet Thursday for a birthday lunch. Lovely broad menu of European classics-with-a-twist, unobtrusive service, and surprisingly low bill. Will definitely return 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.

A very nice family run restaurant with a small but well thought out menu. The food was fine but not amazing but this may be due to a large table that was dining of over 20 people at the same time as us, or the fact it was a Sunday so there were mainly roasts on the menu.

Service was a little slow but friendly.

We have dined at the Bakery many times over the years but new menu disappointing and pricey. No children's menu our kids. Food good but tiny portions. "Selection of veg" consisted of carrots and mange tout. We expected more variety. Served 4 dishes we hadn't ordered due to waiter's mix up. Such a shame as it was my birthday and I wanted a special meal. The bar menu was much more to our liking so maybe we'll do that in future. Also, it was very noisy and difficult to talk.

Lovely location. Attentive staff, although a little stressed due to the amount of people. Very large table nearby had child who didn't stop crying for entire meal, which put us off a bit. There are two dining areas, so maybe the smaller could be for people without children? Just a thought. Food good, service fair, but kept having to ask for things. Very busy as pre-Christmas, so may try another time when not so busy.

It’s a while since we were here but the quality hasn’t slipped at all. A very friendly welcome, great service, excellent menu and food prepared with care and attention. The change to offering vegetables separately did not disappoint as our dishes had adequate vegetables included. We will return again.

We went to the Bakery on a Sunday on impulse with our grown up daughter. We didn't want to eat a full Sunday lunch and they told us we could eat from the bar snacks menu which looked good. We had to move tables to do this which felt a little odd as there was plenty of space in the dining room but it was worth it. The food was exceptionally good. Simple delicious and expertly prepared. We had five dishes between the three of us tapas style and it made a great experience. We will probably try the full menu but I would come just for the bar snacks again!

A lovely meal for 2. A really nice restaurant without the tables being too close together and good service from staff. Would like more non-fish choice in starters but overall an excellent experience and we'd be happy to return - which we will.

This restaurant with rooms serves excellent food and has contemporary and comfortable bedrooms. We had two starters each plus dessert/cheese. Tuna carpaccio, scallops, crab and ginger salad, leeks stuffed with squid were all excellent. Bread freshly cooked was delicious. French Sauvignon Blanc extremely tasty and a good price. Both the proprietor Andrew, and our waiter from Galicia were friendly and attentive! Excellent value for money.

We went to The Bakery and our table was booked for 8.15 pm. Our sat nav decided to take us all around the houses, so we didn't arrive until 9.00 pm. The staff greeted us in a friendly manner and welcomed us in. The food was delicious, especially the mussels. Will definitely be visiting again in the near future. Maria

This is the third time that I have been to the Bakery - the first for my Mum's 50th, where we hired out the majority of the restaurant. The second time was for a family meal and the most recent was with my girlfriend. Despite the differences in terms of catering for the attendees of each meal, every time the service has been absolutely exceptional - it's personable yet not over-exaggerated whilst maintaining the sense of an occasion. Not once are you rushed or up-sold and that's something that all is all-too-rare when eating out these days! The food is fantastic, and having a set menu with optional additions makes it all very straightforward. A restaurant for any occasion, and I will definitely be visiting again at a later date.

Strange Sunday lunch experience - only one other table was occupied, the place felt like it wasnt sure it should be open. Food was only alright compared to other reviews - pate was large portion but tasteless although bread was good, and soup and haddock were both tasty. Roast beef was again decent portion but only alright, vegetables nothing special and a bit mushy.

This is now the second time we have visited the bakery. Soon as you enter the staff are very attentive. We all had a roast which was as good as a homemade dinner. We all had three course which was very reasonable at at £26.95 per person.
one very small criticism, as we are all non smokers we would prefer if the waiters did not smell of stale cigarettes.
This has not put us off from coming to the bakery and we will recommend the bakery to all family and friends.
