The fact that places like The Bakehouse still exist in England is extremely reassuring, when so much of England these days has changed for the worse. Castle Cary itself is a very pleasant place, and The Bakehouse is one of many small businesses in this...More

What a lovely place! We popped in for a coffee with friends, ended up staying for over an hour. The staff were really lovely and very friendly. They were more than happy to let our labradoodle sit in the courtyard with us, and in fact...More

I absolutely love this place. The Pad Thai and the Moo Makrame are amazing. I hope it never closes. The cakes look delicious, but I usually don't have room to sample them.

We are always looking for cafes and restaurant that are a little different so tried the Bakehouse in Castle Cary because it offers Thai food along side the normal lunch offerings. We all had different Thai main dishes which were very good. The service was...More
