This is a very classy site with excellent food. Comfortable surroundings and super service. As the village is small, there is no problem with travel and you can enjoy a drink.

Probably one of the best meals we had in ages. The presentation on each dish we had was spot on (I love there use of micro herds/ micro mesclun and the coned vegetables). Starters: Mini spring rolls Parfait (probably the best I ever had) Mains: Belly of Pork, confit potatoes, apple (simple yet executed to perfection) Fillet Steak (amazing) Desserts:... More

Six of us had dinner here last week. Lovely food and a very nice staff. They do a lovely set dinner menu mid-week which is good value.

Had the misfortune to visit this restaurant recently. It was our Mum's 80th birthday and we decided to treat here to a weekend in Carlingford. My sister had booked a table at The Bay Tree restaurant 3 months ago. She specifically asked for an area on our own away from Hen Partys. She was assured by the Manager that we... More

We told you that yes there was a hen... More

Had the misfortune of visiting this restaurant with friends. One of my friends required a gluten free diet and we were assured all dishes could be adjusted to suit. After my friend had eaten her starter she became ill. We call the waitress, who assured us the starter was gluten free. The main course appeared and my friend was unable... More

I would like to respond to this review as it is not entirely truthful. The Caesar salad was ordered without croutons. There was no flour used in any of our dishes or gluten in any of the dishes ordered by your friend. We take allergies very seriously and a lot of coeliac sufferers dine in our restaurant. She may not... More

I booked this restaurant because of such good reviews on Tripadvisor, but I was disappointing. The setting is nice, very lovely inside. The starter (scallops) was good. But the main was not the best. My steak (medium-rear) was burned. It was medium-rear inside, but the outside had a terrible taste of burn. It left quite an unpleasant taste. So, sot... More

Had Sunday lunch here yesterday. Lived up to our expectations after reading the reviews. Really great quality food for €25 for 3 courses. It was delicious. We had scotch egg with black pudding and tempura prawn starters. 3/4 of our group had the duck and I had the lamb shank for mains. Deserts were raspberry cheesecake, pavalova with fresh fruit...
