This is a lovely restaurant, the staff are very welcoming and the food delicious, particularly good Thai food. Highly recommended, and the cakes are great too.

This is our favourite place for tea/coffee and cake, or lunch in Castle Cary. No one makes cakes like Aunchna – it is hard not to indulge! And their authentic Thai lunches and dinners are a real find in a small town like Cary. You can't beat the Pad Thai. Chris always gives guests a very warm welcome.

went back to the Bakehouse for drinks and cakes, always very good service. The coffee is excellent and the selection of cakes is very good and they are well worth trying if you can make up your mind which one to have. Apart from being a coffee/ tea house you can also a an authentic Thai lunch and evening meals... More

So impressed! Looks like a tea room, tastes out of this world. I think it's only open for Thai food on Friday and Saturday evenings, maybe that's a Winter thing, so check first, but if you're within a journey, or even if you're not...don't miss it!

Craving some great flavour, booked into The Bakehouse. I was surprised and delighted with the delicious, colourful and fresh Thai food and divine desserts, superbly presented. Mr and Mrs Walker run a great restaurant and do everything exceptionally well. We made sure to return a second time ASAP and again loved everything served. Spotlessly clean, great ambience and the service... More

I have to visit Castle Cary to visit my Mum, and I try to wangle my trip date so i can have a lunch at the Bakehouse before driving home. (They are not open on Sundays and Mondays). Authentic Thai meals (as well as English lunch options) make it my preferred lunch or coffee spot in town. Last time I... More

A little gem of a place, choose whether you have tea and cake, a traditional meal or at certain times a superb Thai dish. If it's a nice day make the most of the charming Courtyard.

Welcoming friendly staff. We opted for thai, mum had the thai fish cakes which came with a salad, rice and dips. I had the crab khaw which they amended for me to have no prawns. Lovely desserts and coffee. Restaurant and loo spotless, lovely music playing quietly. Will return.

We visited based on a personal recommendation. Originally a tea house, it is now a Thai restaurant for lunch and dinner and a bakery in the mornings and late afternoons. We arrived just before 2pm and managed to get the last table which was outside, fortunately we are having warm weather! The restaurant was heaving which is always a good... More
