bakesmiths faq


Do you take table bookings/reservations?

Unfortunately not … however, if you have a large group or a special occasion, please contact us directly at and we will try to accommodate where possible.

Do you sell gluten-free food/bread/cakes?

Unfortunately, nothing on the Bakesmiths site can be considered gluten-free. We do have NGCI (non-gluten containing ingredients) products but as a small bakery, we are unable to stop cross contamination.

Do you have a car park/where is your nearest car park?

There is limited parking in front and in the bus lane (between 1000-1630). There is an NCP just 3 mins walk at Clifton Down Shopping centre.

Do you have any high chairs?

Yes, we have two available on a first come first served basis.

Can I sit in the meeting room?

The meeting room is available for hire from this website. At busy periods and when the room has not been booked, we may make the meeting room seating available to customers. Please ask a member of staff when you visit.

Do you have access to WiFi?

Yes, we have free WiFi for paying customers. The password is on the bottom of receipts.

Do you allow dogs?

We love dogs however we are unable to allow them in, as we have an open kitchen.

Do you have a children’s menu?

We have a Full Bakesmiths for children on the menu, we are also happy to accommodate other menu options, just ask a member of the team.

Do have disabled access?

Unfortunately, we do not have disabled access or facilities due to the location of the facilities and our open style kitchen.



Meeting room FAQ’s

I am hosting a meeting/party can I bring my own food/drinks?

Outside food cannot be consumed on the premises. Exceptions – cookery/baking classes, photoshoots or supper club/pop up restaurant (pre-agreed – latter two would be evening events only)

Can you discount the hire costs?

We believe our rates to be very competitive, therefore, unfortunately, we cannot discount the price.

What does the room hire cost include?

Complementary filter coffee, tea making facilities and water and use of the screen and flip chart.

Do you have a projector/sound equipment?

We have a 36” TV which laptops can be connected to with HDMI or VGA cable (customer will need to provide cables). We also have a flipchart.

What is the maximum capacity?

20 people.

Can I get a refund in the case of cancellation?

Room Hire needs to be paid in full online to secure a booking. The booking can be refunded if there is a cancellation within 24 hours of the payment being received. After this time a 50% cancellation fee will be charged.

We reserve the right to cancel bookings with a minimum of 4 weeks notice. In this case we will notify by email and issue a full refund.

Can we set up early?

There maybe a small window of opportunity to set up early (15mins by arrangement) however the room requires a full clean and replenish between sessions so this is not always possible.

Can we use the cafe area as overspill?

The cafe area cannot be used unless pre-agreed – use of the cafe side will incur extra costs due to loss of business.

Can we film in the meeting room?

Filming or recording of any kind will need to be pre-agreed – please contact the team at before booking the meeting room for this purpose.

Can we store equipment in the room outside of the hire times?

Storage of items can be pre-agreed, however, the property is left entirely at the individual’s risk.

Can we change the layout of the room?

You are able to move the tables and chairs to meet your requirements, however, these will need to
be returned to their original places by the end of the hire.
