Location and contact

Set on two floors and in an idyllic palm tree and twinkly light filled courtyard, the Bakehouse has been a part of the local community for the past 15 years. New owners Kim Letchford and Gary Francis took over on the 14th February 2017. Kim started working here over 8 years ago, when she did her work experience for school. She went on to study catering at the local college for 3 years and worked at the Bakehouse for most of that time as a chef, taking time out to work abroad. Gary for the past 6 years has been the sous chef at The very well known gastro pub The Victoria Inn, in Perranuthnoe. They are both very enthusiastic and innovative creating new and exciting dishes for their guests. They

We went here because it was just over the road from where we were staying. The steaks seem to be the most popular things on the menu. If you do like a rare steak this is a good place to go. The toilets are upstairs....More

The evening started with nobody downstairs to greet us upon arrival so we took the stairs to find some staff and were seated quickly. The menus were of minimal variety and difficult to read due to the cover (perhaps a different design would be better)....More
