“out of the fire and into the frying pan”

Sue And Ian Gray took Over at the Old Bakehouse in April 2016 following a combined fifty years experience in the hotel and restaurant industry. Focussing their efforts to maintain and further improve the standards and reputation that the Bakehouse has enjoyed for many years; they are delighted to welcome Pascal Theze, new Head Chef supported by Sue Gray as Second Chef, working relentlessly to deliver you amazing food and great value.

Our new menu brings an exciting change, maintaining the aim of delivering great flavour, great variety, and value to all of our guests. In an exciting year and a half, we have been overwhelmed with the support and feedback from all of our valued guests. With this in mind we want to give something back to you, and to the broader community of the Scottish Borders, Edinburgh, the Lothian’s, Lanarkshire and further afield. As well as a change in menu and drinks offering we have also been busy refurbishing the Old Bakehouse with sympathy for its history, age and position in West Linton.
