A regular spot for us - great for a quick lunch, birthday dinner or Sunday roast. Food is consistently good and staff are helpful and friendly.

My wife and I enjoyed a Tuesday evening meal here. It was a return visit and the food and service was as we had expected and experienced before. We had booked in advance but on a Tuesday evening in April it was fairly quiet. We had the beetroot and thyme risotto and prawn and crayfish cocktail as starters and the... More

We recently enjoyed an evening meal and what a fantastic restaurant, I had duck for a starter which was amazing. There was no rush to vacate the table, great food, great service and friendly staff. It is a small restaurant so I suggest booking for an evening meal.

I had 2 starters - soup of the day(mushroom) and corgette fritters - for dinner. Both were delicious and the service was lovely. This was my second visit. Colleagues who worked nearby Arundel took me to this place 2vyears ago and we had good dining experience then too.

Had to wait far too long for our food. People who were seated after us had finished and paid for theirs before we got our Panini and Rarebit. The food was good so why can't the service match?

My daughter and I visited this restaurant today on our way back home. We shared the pan fried halloumi with red pepper sauced potatoes and chorizo to start, which was absolutely gorgeous! And perfect for a starter to share. I then had the cod and chips which was the best I've had in years. My daughter was meant to have... More

First visit. Very impressed. Food was excellent if a tad pricey. Only 6 in on a Tuesday so no worries about waiting or feeling rushed. The guys had the Slow Roasted Belly Pork which was of ample portion size. I had chicken and my friend had red bream. Good choice of potatoes and veg. Dessert was yummy too. Only down... More

Having been to The Bay Tree for quite a few years and really enjoyed it I was disappointed to visit recently. Put In a cramped uncomfortable corner. Had to wait a good hour for starter which wasn't good, then a long gap for main which was partially cold. Staff were very busy. It used to be great and viewed going... More

After finding our hotel could not feed me as I have nut and peanut allergies, we found a delightful restaurant which served the most delicious food we've ever had. Not only was the food excellent but the ambience was perfect. In fact we are there every night whilst away. Would definitely recommend the belly pork!

This restaurant was very busy when we arrived and most tables turned around whilst we were there. The table for the four of us was small and became a juggling act getting everything into the table, my friends said they were conscious of no elbow room at all. We could over hear conversations from the other tables owing to their... More
