See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

A busy and popular local with the same landlady for almost ten years. There are pool, darts and crib teams and themed nights. They have country music sessions fortnightly on Thursday evenings. There is a smart dining room extension that also doubles as a function room together with a beer garden with barbecue facilities. Large dining room extension built and opened summer 2013. They are Cask Marque accredited and stock Weston’s ‘Old Rosie’ cider. 'The Bakers' celebrated a century of ownership by Arkell's in 1996, but it was built back in 1847 by William Slade of Moredon. He also owned The Red Lion (now renamed The Boundary House) even though by trade he was a butcher! A major renovation in 1956 and an extension in 1984 & 2013 have brought the Bakers Arms up-to-date - but not too up-to-date. This is a no-frills pub and as such belongs to a rare breed of traditional British locals.
