Cannot comment on the food as we did not get any. In spite of pre-booking,arrived at appointed time, waited 2 hours had to ask for bread as we were starving, bread came, no apologies, nothing. Certainly no food ever came close to us. Eventually waited 2 hours and then walked out.

It was my husbands birthday treat, we booked a table at 7.30pm on Saturday. Food was ordered promptly, 8.45pm no sign of the starters. We were sitting directly in front of the bar/front of house, no one acknowledged we had no food (all eye contact from the serving staff was avoided) nor was asked if were we ok for drinks.... More

We have eaten lunch here relatively often in the past and nearly always enjoyed it and felt it was good value. However this Saturday things were different. We ordered our lunch from the specials blackboard - my wife had the prawn and cod fishcakes which she thought tasty though there wasn't much prawn and I had the goats cheese quiche... More

Going by the good reviews we must have been unlucky & picked a bad night! Arrived at 8 pm, still no food by 9 pm so had to ask for some bread as we had not been offered any! At this time a couple on the next table who were in before us got up & left as they had... More

I haven't been here for a while and had a very warm welcome from one of the team....she confirmed our booking with the addition of one vegan. Have to say that the seats at our table were quite uncomfortable and basic - they were quite hard with no cushions. However, food was brilliant and the vegan option tasty - the... More

A party of 6 visited for a light lunch on New Year's Eve. Although none was ready set, a table for 6 was quickly prepared. The service was friendly and attentive and the food excellent value for money. We all agreed that we would visit this restaurant again

Pigeon breast and venison steak were both treated with serious skill. ?Why though serve up bowls of boring carrots / peas / swede to go with a main course - restaurants have moved on a long way from this kind of thing... Other members of our party were unimpressed by glutinous rice served underneath a prawn starter, reappearing in the... More

Lunch with friends. The service level could be better as the kitchen was not communicating well with the waitress. We found the food a little too salty and the whitebait was not fresh but out of a box and overcooked. Could do better for the prices charged.

We purchased a Spirit FM discount voucher for this venue which entitled us to £50 worth of food for an outlay of £25. We’d never been to the Bay Tree before so we thought we’d give it try and duly booked a table for a Thursday night in early August. We were asked to hand over our Spirit FM voucher... More

Four of us had a lovely lunch. Special's board was very good, with two of us selecting from that & other 2 having the fish & chips from main lunch menu. Portions were very good, fresh and well presented. Skinny chips are ok but would have preferred chip shop style - it us a treat after all! We all chose... More
