Come and Join us on May 19th for a tutored whisky tasting at the Old Bakehouse with whisky experts, Sarah and Kami from whiskybosh.com. They are looking forward to taking you on a journey of discovery and an adventure for the senses. You’ll explore single cask whiskies and challenge all you thought you knew about whisky. We’ll be providing some bites of food such as cheese, beef, chocolate from Cocoa Black and haggis balls to see how to partner food with different styles of single malts.
Tickets will be just £20, places will be limited to 25 as the event will be held in the Conservatory, from 7-8.30pm. Further details to follow and we will be announcing a competition for a free ticket as well.

2016 is nearly over but there’s still plenty to come at The Old Bakehouse. From Christmas to Hogmanay and beyond, there’s something for everyone… Have you booked your table? Christmas is nearly upon us but fear not, there’s still plenty of time to book a table at The Old Bakehouse to enjoy our Christmas Menu.…
Our Christmas Menu is full of festive Bakehouse favourites and although great food is key to an excellent Christmas (and the rest of the year for that matter), let’s not forget about the all-important selection of drinks available at The Old Bakehouse, for drinkers and diners alike. In our last blog, we promised to bring…
As the nights draw in and the days get colder, it’s time to face facts – Christmas is now only a matter of weeks away.
If you’re looking for somewhere to dine over the festive period, then look no further than The Old Bakehouse. Why not bring the family or book your office Christmas meal with us and enjoy our new Christmas menu? It’s a traditional affair with a Scottish twist, all of which can be enjoyed within the warm and cosy surroundings of The Old Bakehouse. We’ll even light the log fire for your arrival. We also sell gift vouchers – the perfect Christmas gift!
So what can you expect from our Christmas menu? Of course, we have old favourites which are a must. This includes roast breast of free range turkey with turkey stock gravy, kilted sausage, cranberry chutney and a plethora of traditional accompaniments, plus our very own Bakehouse Christmas pudding with brandy cream.
But the menu doesn’t stop there – take a look at what else is on offer below. Remember, we pride ourselves on using locally sourced produce and our Christmas menu is no different.
Warm your bones with the Bakehouse parsnip and cumin soup or a game and red wine broth – both served with crusty bread from Forsyth’s of Peebles. We also have game rillettes accompanied with a homemade piccalilli, hot toast and butter, and home cured gravlax with a dill honey mustard dressing. For a meat-free option, choose from a mixed mushroom, leek and Gruyère tartlet or a beetroot, blue cheese and walnut salad with raspberry and chilli dressing.
Treat yourself to a Scottish feast with a chargrilled 8oz Scotch Sirloin with black pepper and Cognac sauce, seasonal vegetables and potatoes or local pheasant breast with haggis stuffing, streaky bacon, orange and thyme gravy, buttery mash and seasonal vegetables. The fish dish – pan fried fillet of seam bream with chorizo and fennel potatoes, spinach and a tomato, caper and citrus dressing – is delicious, as is the mixed vegetable, tomato and halloumi gratin with spicy sweet potato chips and a dressed salad.
Finish your meal in style with a selection of hearty desserts. This includes vanilla and white chocolate cheesecake with a wild berry coulis, chocolate and pecan brownie served with hot fudge sauce and caramel ice-cream, plus a traditional sticky toffee pudding accompanied with vanilla ice-cream. We also have a quality cheese board filled with a selection of ripe cheeses, house chutney and oatcakes.
It’s fair to say that there’s something for everyone on The Old Bakehouse Christmas menu and it won’t break the bank with 2 courses for £22.50 or 3 courses for £26. We’ll also have an excellent selection of drinks to accompany the food, which we’ll tell you more about very soon.
The Christmas menu is available from Wednesday 30th November right through to Christmas Eve but we advise booking as soon as possible to avoid disappointment – simply call 01968 660830 to reserve your table.
We enjoyed a fantastic summer at The Old Bakehouse but we’re looking forward to celebrating Christmas with our local and loyal customers, as well as new faces from near and far.
