I had visited Bay Tree a few times before but I was looking forward to checking out a Sunday morning breakfast recently.

First off, I will admit that we arrived at 9.55 on a bitter cold Sunday morning. The door was locked but the staff member was behind the counter and surely saw us standing in the freezing cold though the glass front. We thought to ourselves that she can’t leave us here much longer like this but she did and 10am came and went. We didn’t want to knock the window and ask to be let in out of the cold, but chose to go and have breakfast in O’Loughlins hotel instead. For the record, we walked away from the Bay Tree @ 10.05, pretty cold and pretty pissed off. As it worked out, O’Loughlins was a nice breakfast and we probably won’t give Bay Tree another try. Common sense should be taught to staff in this place and a little more consideration for your customers would go a long way

Went here for a quick bite and were not disappointed. I had the Bay Tree Special sandwich and it was absolutely delicious, presented nicely and very reasonable . It had beef, brie, and carmelised onions.
My husband had the chicken club sandwich and he said it was very tasty and a really generous portion. His came with chips also which were lovely.
It was a perfect example of how simple food can be done really well
Staff were efficient and friendly. Will definitely be back!

We were a party of 45 people.Despite this, the Bay Tree staff managed to organise an excellent evening for all of us.Everything ran very smoothly.The service was very professional.The food was excellent(especially the fish!).There was music and dancing in front of the fire until at least midnight.A great time was had by all!Thanks a million! (and thanks for the photos too).
