Our first visit to the Bay Tree for a bar lunch today. A real treat, with excellent service, drinks and food, all reasonably priced. A lovely period building with log fires in both parts of the bar and another log fire in the library with very comfortable seating.

With the magnificent help of Liz at the hotel I was able to organise a special birthday Sunday lunch for my wife with our two sons and their wives and 4 young grandchildren. We booked the conservatory as the grandchildren were between the ages of 1 and 7 and thought they (and other diners) might prefer some space. The conservatory...

Lovely hotel very comfortable with many small cosy spaces with log fires. Beers and wines on offer very good. Bar food selection also to be recommended but the evening meal in the restaurant rather dull. The canapés were very understated and boring. Starter of turbot also needed a boost, although the broth it was served with was good. Main course...
