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

We have been here a few times recently with family and enjoyed it on each occasion. The restaurant is simply but nicely furnished, which sits well in Arundel. Service is relaxed and friendly and food is proper classical wholesome cooking. Wine list is well priced and those we had paired well with the food. Recommended!

While Arundel has many eating places, the Bay tree has got to be one of the best. A cheery and efficient service combined with and extensive menu made this a very enjoyable place to eat. Al the food was cooked to perfection and the wine list had suitable choices.

I had the fillet steak the best I have had in the UK. My wife had the salmon and it was delicious. The food was excellent only spoilt by the long wait nearly 40 minutes however when it arrived it was well worth the wait.

We visited Arundel and were spoilt for choice in terms of places to eat. We settled on this independent outlet and we were not disappointed. The menu was interesting, the food good and the staff were friendly and obliging. We will go back.

Myself and my husband had our wedding dinner at The Bay Tree the same weekend as the Arundel festival. We could not have asked for a better service from Angela and the team and the food was exquisite as always. Despite being their busiest weekend of the year, they did not for one second forget about us, always ensuring that... More
