Valentines Night at The Bay Tree

We are very pleased that Chef Keith Dunstane is now settling well into The Bay Tree and is busy creating all sorts of wonderful dishes for our guests

On our first big day, for Sunday Lunch on 11 February, we welcomed over 20 guests:
Our latest feedback was positive: ‘ ..enjoyed my roast chicken and the crumble to follow was yummy….will be back’ and ‘Went today for Sunday lunch , it was lovely couldn’t fault it looking forward to going back soon’

We think that our sea-view restaurant with it’s spectacular views across stunning Stone Bay, makes for the perfect venue for a romantic meal, especially with guests being welcomed into our sea-view lounge and our library bar before-hand and relaxing with their post-meal drinks afterwards
