This is a wonderful hidden gem in Birmingham! The food is authentic and delicious, and the service was amazing. The owner/manager took the time to talk through the menu with us at the beginning and the waitresses were very helpful and attentive throughout. We stayed for starters, mains and desserts. Can’t recommend this place enough

About the restaurant
We founded The Bay Tree out of a deep love for real food, for food that is fresh and honest . We also felt that Kinver needed a place for people to meet each other, relax and enjoy a meal.
We only use the best ingredients here at The Bay Tree: wherever possible we use local produce, organic vegetables, fresh fish, and free-range meats. We strive to make each and every dish a wholesome expression of our love for food, life, and living.
The Bay Tree was born in March 2020. Our goal is to make the Bay Tree blossom into a thriving village community. We offer a restaurant and bar, with quality, homely food to suit all appetites and budgets. Sympathetically designed, with room for families, groups and parties of all sizes, we want any customer to feel like they can call The Bay Tree their extended home. Want to hire an area, whole floor or even the whole restaurant for a special occasion? Just ask us: we would only be too happy help!

Second visit to the Baytree, first was about 12 months ago and I thought that was excellent. This latest visit was even better than the last. The service was fab, the staff serving us were very good natured and attentive. Six of us dined and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals Will certainly visit again if they'll let us, would truly recommend All the best, Peter Burford

About the restaurant

Current Chef Director of Smoke- Hampton Manor and former head chef at The Wilderness, Stu emerged into the public eye upon winning the prestigious BBC Two’s Masterchef The Professionals in 2019 in which Marcus Wareing described his food as “daring”, and Monica Galetti called Deeley “the complete package”. His victory showcased not only his culinary skills but also his ability to create exceptional dishes under pressure. After working behind the scenes with the newly appointed Head Chef Patrick Hukins (previous Sous Chef of Smoke – Hampton Manor) to the kitchen team, brings a wealth of experience and a fresh perspective to Laghi’s. The new focus on flavour-driven small plates and showcasing seasonal ingredients align perfectly with the restaurant’s continued values and commitment to a personalised casual dining experience.

About the restaurant
Welcome to our vibrant Tapas Bar and Restaurant. where every dish tells a story and every sip evokes a sense of adventure. Nestled in the heart of Moseley, our establishment is a culinary oasis that celebrates the rich tapestry of Spanish cuisine and culture.

All our cocktails are made using premium spirits and mixers. Why not try a Raspberry Gin Rickey - served ice cold creating a refreshing and sophisticated drink to suit any palate. Then there is always the excuse to raise a toast with our Prosecco- delicate, crisp and bubbles, a firm favourite.

We have a carefully curated wine selection. From crisp and refreshing Sauvignon Blanc to lucious aromatic Chardonnay. Indulge in the velvety richness of our red wines from a smooth Merlot to a deep dark Malbec.

A perfect meal would include Chicken and Chorizo Paella with King prawns, Goats cheese with a Walnut Salad drizzled with honey, and Lamb skewers .... and perhaps a few more side dishes to mix and match . Feliz Cena.

I called to say my party would be no more than 5 minutes late and the gentleman who answered was more than a little frosty about it. One of the dishes we wanted to order had run out which was disappointing and we were upstairs with a large party so it was absolutely deafening. We could hardly hear each other talking.

We were staying at the Wolverhampton holiday inn race course and looking for a Sunday roast meal. We decided to cab it to this pub and were happy we did. The food was great, large selection of beverages, and the space was clean and welcoming. Beer garden even had some evening sun! Kids like the selection of desserts. 10/10
