This restaurant is sublime. Not only is the food truly special, but the gem in the crown is it's owner Xavier. He makes you feel genuinely welcomed and takes time to ensure you get the most from your dining experience at Baileys. The iberico ham is to die for! The lobster spaghetti is simply Devine and the duck outstanding. Don't... More

We have been several times and have always enjoyed the food that has been served. The atmosphere upstairs always feels sophisticated yet friendly. Xavier is a warm and kind man although to those that do not know him I could see that his demeanour may come off a little rough around the edges! The dishes I have experienced have always... More

The Spanish restaurant itself is situated upstairs, above Baileys delicatessen. This charming restaurant boasts fresh, local produce, and always an ever changing menu to excite the tastebuds. I haves dined here before on many occasions for the lunchtime menu, which is so reasonably priced and perfect for a catchup and glass of wine during the lunch hour. This evening we... More

They pride themselves on offering great quality produce yet they make you feel an inconvenience and lack basic customer service skills. Is it hard to say please and thank you? Wouldn't recommend this place..Mc Donalds offer better customer service and I highly doubt that they would wish to receive the service they provide if they want out for dinner.

This is the second time I have dined here. Xavier took excellent care of our party of five. The food truly reminded me of the better gourmet restaurants I have visited in the Basque and Catalan areas of Northern Spain. If you have the opportunity, do yourself a favor and go here, treat yourself and you surely will be delighted.

I've been coming to Baileys for 6 or 7 years now and have never been disappointed, Xavier is a charismatic and friendly owner which makes every visit enjoyable. My wife and I have been for a romantic meal for two and I've also been to his recent Gin and Tonic Evening where they catered for 30+ on both occasions the... More

Had been here for a coffee downstairs, where there is also a deli and decided to try their lunch. Very nice it was too. My wife and I had a three course lunch (£14.50 each) and washed it down with a nice bottle of house white. Its a relaxed atmosphere with a Spanish (catalan) style and made a nice change.... More

One you feel you should keep to yourself, an amazing place for that extra special lunch. They always surprised you, the food described to you on their weekly lunch time menu, always sounds nice, but arrives as quite a surprise, their chef has wonderful imagination. Their staff and the boss Havia (not sure how to spell his name (sorry)), are... More
