One of many trips to our favourite place to stay and eat in Carlingford. The owners Connor and Christine and all the staff are consistent in their excellence and passion for what they do. We stayed in a room we had not been in before and wow! I will not say which one as I might want to book the... More

Popped in for Sunday lunch and I was not disappointed in the slightest! The food was fantastic and extremely well priced. Service was great and not too in your face. The pork belly was perfect and so was dessert. Can't wait to return!

There is 1 toilet in the restaurant, badly positioned for both men and women ... Saw all queuing in middle of restaurant to go! It was not particularly clean, nor... More

we joined another couple, who live in the area, for dinner at this small, cozy restaurant. We had a very good meal, with friendly staff, and a lively but not too loud ambience. Wine list is somewhat limited, but we did find something to go with our meals. Would definitely recommend this.

The food is very good.Here is an example of a chef who knows how to cook, blend and present. One of us enjoyed the hake while I had the duck. We shared a goats cheese starter. The food was of a very high standard. Unusually high for this area.The service was cold, impersonal and more suited to an army canteen.... More

Enjoyed a beautifully presented, delicious meal here in the Bay Tree with friends. For this I would recommend. Query the acoustics in the restaurant? Does ' noise' seem to carry in the restaurant room?

Each of us ordered different meals and every one of the courses was superbly presented, and tasted delicious. The waitress and waiter, were very helpful, pleasant and demonstrated excellent... More

I visited with my friend at the weekend and it was divine. I had the steak which was cooked to perfection, honestly couldnt fault it. My friend had the lamb which again was without fault and delicious. A lovely restaurant overall with good atmosphere and friendly staff. We will definitely be back 😊
