user reviews of Bakehouse, Welwyn Garden City

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Missed the turning into the pub so turned left at the traffic lights, turned around in the road, came back to the lights and turned right.
The entrance from this way is blocked by a traffic island, so went down to the roundabout, all the way round and came back up my original route and left into the pub car park. Not a good start.

Four real ale pumps - only two on. Pedigree and Old Empire - both poor quality.
Had the Sunday carvery. A mixture of meats are offered and comes with a yorkshire pudding as big as your plate (which is not very clever as you then have to juggle it to get your veg on) and then it tasted like plastic.
By the time we found the gravy and got back to our table the food was only luke warm at best.

Waited over half an hour for our sweets to arrive and enquired (sarcastically) if I had to queue up for it like the carvery?
They came five minutes later and was the best part of the meal.

On exiting the car park I needed to turn right - you can't because of said traffic island.
So, up to the traffic lights again, take any turn, turn around and back through the lights again - bloody stupid.

Having said all this I'm willing to give the pub a second visit just in case we were unlucky - fingers crossed.

Tried this pub a few nights back as we were meeting friends who live in WGC, place was heaving at 7pm, we got a table for four cleared and wiped down no problem, the fun started when himself went to the bar, I watched him wait behind several other bods then the whole queue being usurped by a young lassie who the barmaid had seen arrive last, a loud "excuse me love, there's a queue here!" soon sorted matters, the server however never commented much less apologised. She then took the order from the next lady in line, took the cash, and gave no drinks! The lady obviously thought it was table service, when she asked if that was the case the response was a sullen "well it can be I guess" Most of the bar staff (with the exception of a gem called Stewart) seem to be trained to deliberately avoid all eye contact and to never acknowledge anyone waiting, our group made three trips to the bar and we all got similar treatment. Good points were a bright smiling waitress and ... erm ....
The food was mediocre at best, microwave in a pouch curries and a chewy chicken breast dish, like Wetherspoons food but not as well done. Priced appropriately but Welwyn has way better places than this, Marstons do themselves no favours at all here. Avoid.
