    The food was tasty but the main meal would have been nicer if it was hotter, I could have sent it back but had started eating and did not want my partner to end up watching me eat, it should have been hotter when it was first brought out. The cheesecake was very nice but there was not enough of it for the price. The service was very good.

    Was a tasty meal. Friendly and helpful staff. Just maybe would have been nice to have been asked how our meal was like most restaurants do. Would definitely visit again.

    Two main courses came with sauces but they were both scant. The ravioli was dried out on the top as though it had been sitting under the heater. I had asked for the aioli to be kept from the starter and this was needed for the chicken dish which also was lacking in sauce although it was tasty and the vegetables cooked how I like them. The burger was average. The desserts looked stylish but surprised that the caremelised pineapple was served cold as had expected it to be freshly cooked and therefore hot. Quite expensive for what was served. Definitely felt like a restaurant for captive overnight diners rather than a restaurant to visit.

    Overpriced and poor service. After looking at the menu priced I ordered what I thought was one of the cheaper options, but after 10% had been added to the bill my Salad ended up costing over £17. Vastly overpriced for what it was. Service was very poor, despite the restaurant being fairly quiet the drink I ordered with my meal came a staggering 25 mins after I ordered it. Roughly at the time I was requesting my bill after eating my main course. If I am in this area again I will not eat at this restaurant. There are better options nearby.

    I took my mum for her birthday and the service was fantastic. They made her feel very special and gave an extra glass of prosecco and chocolate chocolates for her birthday. The food was really lovely too. Would definitely recommend, staff were so attentive.

    Ambience of the restaurant is very poor, more like a cafe or canteen. I hope you pay an interior designer to come up with a room with bland table and chairs and uninteresting decoration. Staff were excellent but not enough of them both in the restaurant and the bar. Clearly stretched but they all provided an excellent service under the constraints they were working on.

    Everything was fine with the exception that on the website it said that Sunday lunch was a carvery. Hidden is a little message saying "Please note seasonal changes do occur without notice on the menu from time to time". We only discovered that once we were at the table. Could there not be more information on the website when booking the table? Fortunately the alternative were acceptable to the party of four but it was a bit of a let down.

    Ive been looking at the Bay tree resturant for sometime now, as it was my partners and myself birthday i thought we should treat ourselfs so I booked this restaurant due to the menu which is on your website, when we turned up (not staying inhouse) to be handed a buffet style menu or another menu which was nothing like the one online. I was very annoyed that I was not notified before turning that it's subject to the hotel valiblity that the restaurant menu may change ( which I was told this when we arrived). We was apogised too n got a free drink but the damage was done n won't be returning.

    Needed a restaurant for a quick but good meal. Good service but large party of sportsmen made it quite noisy and put pressure on staff. However, staff friendly and food good.

    Menu choices limited. Was given large coffee (was not asked which size I wanted), which subsequently tasted of hot milk as it was so large. Other than that food was good, and my companion said her beef fell off the bone and was very rich.
