The Bakers Arms, Blaby was built in 1485. Now serving food 7 days a week. We serve traditional and non-traditional English cuisine with a modern day flair that is sure to be appealing to the eye and pallet. We are an Artisan Pub/Restaurant supporting and supported by the local community. The atmosphere is welcoming and satisfying to the senses. But beware, if you are on the tall side as you move through this historic building with the low ceilings and beams as they can be stunning in more ways than one. We cater to all occassions and have an extensive menu sure to please. Serving lunch 7 days a week and dinner Mon - Sat. Reservations are suggested. See our website for full details. We look forward to serving you. Chris, Edward and The Bakers Arms Team
