Today was the third time we have eaten Upstairs at Bailey's and the quality of the food continues to impress. The lunch menu is imaginative and such good value for money with perfectly sized portions and reasonably priced wine. The owner Xavier is very charming and welcoming and the overall experience cannot be faulted

What can I say? Have visited baileys quite a few times over the years and though not a frequent visitor (we live in Surrey) we are always remembered and warmly welcomed. The simple, but exquisite, lunch menu is never the same. Javier, the proprietor, is very charming and knows the wines and menu inside out. Loved my aubergine tempura today.... More

Came here as a family group of four. This is exactly the kind of restaurant I like. Small, independently owned and managed, "patron" on site and active. Varied and unusual menu, interesting and unusual wine list. A bit quirky. As the cliche goes - "what's not to like"? Well, alas the service is a bit haphazard. Menus delivered and ten... More

Both upstairs and downstairs offer fabulous, fresh and inventive twists on continental classics. Xavier and Linda are both so welcoming and knowledgable about their produce and menu. Whether its just a coffee and sandwich downstairs, or a more elaborate upstairs feast- Baileys is a Beccles institution. There is no excuse for not visiting if you live locally and definitely worth... More

The host, Xavier, makes everyone feel relaxed and welcome and is a truly charming gentleman. The wine list is beautifully chosen and the food is a delight. The highlight for me was a starter of home-made black pudding with scallops. It was divine. My only criticism is that the young serving staff were not experienced enough but I'm sure that... More

Lunchtime menu is cv reasonable, dinner menu is limited in choice but the good is fabulous. The owner is always present, super friendly and just a brilliant restauranteur.
