Leave the A419 on B4696 signposted South Cerney and Ashton Keynes. Stay on Spine Road for 2 miles and go straight over crossroads following signs for Oaksey. Turn right at junction signposted Somerford Keynes and follow road through village. Baker's Arms is on left.
This is a great little pub. While the standard menu looks a little ordinary as has been noted in earlier reviews, we headed straight for the specials board. Our choices were peppered lamb steak on dauphinoise potatoes, chicken breast on a mustard mash and a chicken and bacon salad. They were really good, as good in fact as you'll find many good restaurants and better than most pubs. Our dietary requirements were not a problem either, gluten free meals for two of us.

Very welcoming pub and great food. I was on a special diet and chef/landlord were very helpful with my meal choice and gave us a special price too! Only problem was lack of seating and chairs that needed cushions for extra comfort. Nice bar staff too. If you are going there it's best to book a table

Very accommodating for our group of 12 on Sunday, the 2 female staff were really helpful & knowledgeable, the food was tasty. If ever passing the area will defo pop in for bite to eat
Came for lunch with 5 friends. Very friendly. We sat by the open fire. Food was standard pub grub but homemade, tasty, good chips. Looked like they had different food on on different evenings. Would be happy if this was my local!

A third visit to this pub, and the best to date. log fire burning, friendly and helpful staff who had advised us to come in early so that we missed a rush on the kitchen - which we did and as a result had good food at a fair price. An excellent family meal.
I liked the old building and the service was good. Caters for all tastes and is not too expensive. Situated in lovely old village near the lakes.
We visited for Sunday lunch whilst staying at Mill Village.
Bakers arms was conveniantly only a short walk away and the route was a pleasant one!!
We had booked a table (make sure to do so as it is very popular!)
We had fishcake and goats cheese salad to start, roast dinner and rack of ribs for main and sticky toffee pudding and brownie for dessert. There was a good wine selection and also a brilliant garden and kids play area.
The staff were great too, really friendly, you didn't feel hurried but also didn't feel you were waiting to long.
Would definately recommend!
