this is not the first time i have been to the bakery this year but this time i was a bit disappointed with the food presentation and the overall standard of the food and it has put me off coming back for a while & that's a shame as this place could be a goldmine. lovely decorated inside and very appealing from the outside. the staff are great, maybe just an off night for the chef mayabe?

A very good local restaurant with plenty of space between tables if people are concerned. A nice menu and there are always changes. The staff are pleasant and helpful. Well worth a visit.

The Bakery restaurant was extremely good. I was a single diner and was treated like a King. The ambience was excellent. All the courses were perfect. The room was not noisy. It is in a pleasant country village that is well served by buses being the extremity of the London bus network.

All three courses for our evening meal were gorgeous - and memorable - really hard to choose a favourite but my Hake was cooked to perfection. Stayed in the accommodation and had a gorgeous comfortable room to relax in. Next morning we had a lovely cooked breakfast to order with the sun streaming through the front of the restaurant - we will definitely be returning and would definitely recommend. Thank you The Bakery.

the bakery is a lovely restaurant and especially at the moment with the table spacing so good. the menu has changed since we were last there, and there are some nice choices. bubbles by the glass which is always a plus for me. lovely staff, especially the older gentleman, very helpful. well worth a visit.

Main fish was changed but not explained that the sides had and then tried to pass off mash potato as confit potatoe. And steak was asked to medium but came out rare and had to go back. They did give us our side dishes free of charge.

We have been to the Bakery before and it is outstanding. I need to be gluten free and my needs were met perfectly. It was quiet ( due to circumstances but the ambience was still pleasant. Food and service fantastic. Looking forard to our next visit.

Beautifully cooked and fresh locally grown vegetables. Fantastic value with the Eat Out scheme but even without the scheme still well worth it. Goats cheese with beetroot salad starter was extra delicious. Highly recommended

There was no vegetarian main on the menu. Food was not up to their usual standard, left feeling rather underwhelmed and disappointed

I have lived in the area for many years but never eaten here, I have been missing out! Menu choice was very small but actually worked really well as forced me up try Something different which was delicious and beautifullly presented. Fantastic value for money and will definitely be returning very soon.

i was so looking forward to going to celebrate my friends 40th. the restaurant had put a few sprinkles on the table and they did do 3 macaroons with candles in and a note in chocolate of happy birthday but shame my friend didnt get a free glass of bubbly when there was 6 of us and we were spending quite a lot of money! the food was very nice apart from my sirloin steak which had a big bit of gristle through it and lots of fat. i didn't want to complain during the meal as didn't want to cause a fuss for my friend. however i did tell the waiter when he collected plate and he said he would tell the chef but i didnt get offered any discount or a free dessert or even a free coffee which i felt was a shame.

The Bakery staff are courteous, friendly and always professional. We were very impressed with the added safety measures in place for COVID-19. All staff and other customers were at a safe distance without changing the wonderful ambiance and atmosphere that we are used to at the Bakery. The food was delicious and we especially liked the crab lasagna starter and hake main course. We highly recommend The Bakery. Thank you to Andrew and his wonderful staff x

Lovely evening and good food - would have liked to be offered some water and the choux bun for dessert was too big to be attractive. The main courses and starters , however , were excellent and full of flavour.

We went there for Valentines evening meal, nice setting, clean and tidy. Service was good, food was also very nice, paid extra for the Steak on the fixes menu but it was worth it. Be nice if this came with green beans although chips and a to tomato were included. Would have like some music maybe in the background, as the restaurant is open plan and nearly full it was quite noisy at times. It was very nice of them at the end for my wife to be given a rose. We will return.
