Went here with variable expectations, a Spanish restaurant in Beccles? However the atmosphere was excellent, the service very friendly and helpful and the food superb. The food was very authentic and very much what you would get in a good restaurant in Spain. I would highly recommend this restaurant and it is easily the best place to eat in Beccles.

I'm a regular weekend lunchtime diner at Bailey's and this visit Xavier did not disappoint. Three delicious courses of food, prawn and squid ink paella, sirloin flamenquines and pavlova. The wine was superb and reasonable in price. Xavier is a friendly and helpful host. Would definitely recommend.

I was recommended this restaurant whilst staying at Saltgate House Bed and breakfast down the road almost a year ago, what a wonderful experience it was. Exquisite flavour combinations that occasionally challenge your taste buds but provide an explosion of flavour! I keep on coming back, See you soon Upstairs at Baileys.

Visited for the third time this weekend and once again the flavours of Upstairs at Baileys blew me away. Enjoyed pigeon pie followed by Iberico pork fillet and cheese and chocolate for desert. As usual Xavier recommends fantastic wine to go with each course and we even treated ousRselves to a bottle of cava as an aperitifs. Love the fact... More

Had this popular restaurant almost to ourselves this week, but it was a Monday and the middle of January. Later in the week I was told they were fully booked. The pre fixe lunch menu now offers three choices for each of its three courses. None of them are large dishes but then we prefer flavour to huge hunks of... More

Lovely restaurant with a welcoming atmosphere and a wonderfully polite and friendly host. The menu is just the right size with some very nice traditional Catalan or Spanish dishes, as well as some modern twists on old classics. Very good selection of wine and all at a reasonable price! Would definitely recommend the "Turro I Foie Gras" for dessert, I... More

Heading home to London after a fabulous weekend with friends in Beccles. Highlight of the weekend was dinner at Baileys - big flavours, eclectic menu with Spanish undertones. Extensive wine list with interesting Spanish treats to rival any London restaurant. Great host and attentive staff. My only criticism was that I found there to be too many flavours in each... More

What happened in the kitchen yesterday ? Everyone was waiting, waiting and food was not being served ? My chicken legs, in the main couse, were sent back as blood was oozing out from the bone joint. The second plate was not much better and one of the joints was not eaten because blood was oozing out again. When the... More

My partner and I absolutely love Upstairs at Baileys, Quite honestly the best fine dining food in the area bar none. It is all about the flavour! Everything is so well thought through and the current chef has an amazing eye for detail complimenting tastes. The Truffle Evening was beautiful too. There is always a friendly and attentive service from... More
