Located in the heart of Cornwall in Penzance, The Bakehouse is a fantastic and wellestablished restaurant run by experienced chefs Kim Letchford and Gary Francis. Kim worked here for eight years under the previous owners, and jumped at the opportunity to take ownership of the restaurant alongside Gary. The Bakehouse attracts diners from near and far, who come to experience the wonderful food and welcoming service that the restaurant is renowned for.
Arriving at The Bakehouse, guests walk through a beautiful courtyard with fairy light-lit palm trees either side. Fairy lights also drape overhead, providing a spectacular entrance that is reminiscent of beautiful squares in the Mediterranean. The restaurant itself is bright and airy, with windows on one side, mirrors on the other, and French doors opening out onto the courtyard. Opt for Newlyn shellfish bisque or duck liver parfait with toast and pickled vegetables to start, followed by one of six different local steaks or pan-fried lemon sole with Thai broth and pak choi. You’ll be forgiven for not having room for afters, but resisting the Jaffa Cake dessert will prove a real challenge. This beautifully presented vanilla parfait with orange jelly, chocolate mousse, and a chocolate shard is finished with candied orange and orange purée. The cocktail menu boasts an array of favourites such as refreshing Margaritas and classic Cosmopolitans, while the wine list features local wine by Polgoon Bacchus, which is made and bottled in Penzance. The Bakehouse can comfortably seat up to 56 people, making it the perfect venue for your next private function or special occasion.
