After walking our dogs a hearty meal was the order of the day. Dogs settled in the cars, it being cool and overcast, and very close to the abbey, this was an ideal stop. Reasonably priced and clean, the food was good and well presented. The service was excellent and our children sat on the next table were addressed directly... More

Having heard good reviews we decided to 'do' lunch in Tewkesbury and chose The Bay Tree. We were not disappointed. We were asked to choose where to sit which was nice and chose a table in the back section. The service was quick and friendly and after reviewing a great menu we made our selections and ordered a drink. The... More

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely well cooked lunch here of ham , eggs and chips. Very tastey! This is a comfortable and very clean restaurant . I always inspect the toilets before I order - these were impeccable! We will be back!

Serves a good breakfast/lunch during the day & is a delightful spot for dinner in the evenings. ( not generally open on weekday evenings in winter months). Not an extensive menu but the food is excellent as is the service. The interior of the restaurant is surprisingly spacious, tastefully appointed and has an open air patio at the rear.

As a venue for my family, who are living all over the country, this restaurant seemed a good location. We arrived and were seated and given menus by a sweet young waitress. The food was fine, but nothing extraordinary, which was a shame. There were a number of large groups in that night and the service was therefore slower than... More

We went for lunch today at The Bay Tree. I had received rave reviews about the restaurant but had never been there. We called in for a light lunch and were immediately taken by the manner by which the staff addressed us. Very polite and genuine. None of the 'have a nice day' gratuitous platitudes. The menu was more than... More
