    Food and,service were acceptable, however applying a service charge to an already overpriced packet of crisps was a bit ott. Noise level in the grill at dinner was unbearable as other guests were extremely loud.

    We enjoyed our meal. We were late arriving due to traffic but the staff were very accommodating. Unfortunately there were very few people in the restaurant so not much atmosphere. The selection was reduced due to our late arrival but when the food arrived it was delicious. The staff were friendly and attentive. We got discount with our Blue Light Card

    Our meal at the Bay Tree was delicious and the staff were lovely. They were very friendly and attentive which made our evening even more enjoyable. Our server made us a cocktail at the end of the meal, which was her first time doing it, and it was perfect. The restaurant itself is very nice and we thought it a shame that it wasn’t busier on a Friday evening.

    Lovely service at the bar with a skilled barman. Friendly manager who was also good with service. Food was good. One waitress let the experience down a little but it wasn't until desert so still a lovely experience for our easter day but glad we weren't served by her all the way! Thank you for a lovely afternoon :)

    We enjoyed our meal, the menu choice is however quite limited. Cocktails were excellent. It was very quiet and so there wasn’t a lot of atmosphere unfortunately despite being so close to Christmas. Bar and restaurant area has been decorated well. Waiting staff great.

    The bar staff were so slow waiting over 20 minutes for a drink when they were only serving 4 people. Food wise basic - not a high standard at all - slow to produce. Service was ok but clearly so muck to learn apparently if your having fish bring your own fish knife. Sorry to say in terms of value for money this is the lowest achievement of all restaurants this year and a few years - from the amazing high standards to struggling to even start - clearly they need to stop re-think what they are doing - Devore is minimalist - if your making people wait forever to service low standard food then at least have some distractions for people.

    The waiting staff as soon as we walked in were all very attentive and happy. They paid particular attention to our little lad which was very nice. We sat in the garden room with the doors open. The whole place looked very clean and modern. The food was absolutely delicious. Our pudding didn’t come with ice cream but when we asked for some they were happy to oblige. I would highly recommend.

    Slow service ,had to ask for wine list, wine slow in being served. Duck terrine starter ok but not that tasty, cod on sauted new potatoes very nice,eton mess ,very poor,shop brought meringue with berries and a aerosol cream ,not fresh whipped cream. We were asked if we wanted desert menu ,although hadnt even got our main meal at that point! We were asked near to the end if we wanted anything else,said no as still had some wine left to drink,but the waiter then said "just the bill then" usually the customer asks for bill when ready. A 10% £7.20 service charge was added to the bill, we asked for it to be removed,which it was no problem.There was just no ambience in the place,seemed a bit unorganised, wasnt over busy. Not overly impressed
