About Bay Tree Broadstairs
The Bay Tree restaurant is an all day restaurant open to our hotel guests and passers by throughout the year. In summer, we open up the French doors to our patio so guests can enjoy the sea breeze.
Our breakfast menu is tailored according to each guest’s preferences and offers a range of continental and traditional English options.
For lunch and dinner, our head chef Vlod creates classic English dishes with a modern twist, along with innovative side dishes that both complement each course and are perfect for sharing. Food is seasonal with most ingredients sourced from Kent’s wonderful producers with plenty of seafood on the menu, reflecting the restaurant’s coastal setting.
Vegetarian and vegan options are always available and we can cater for allergies and special dietary requirements with a little advance notice.
We serve homemade cakes served throughout the day and guests can also enjoy afternoon tea in the sun overlooking the sea, along with a selection of Kentish wines, gins, beers and soft drinks.
We love hosting groups but only allow tables of up to 12 to book online so please call or email us if you are a group of or more.
The restaurant has a cosy and intimate feel to it where guests greet each other and staff make you very welcome and comfortable. The food is to a very high standard and excellent value for money. My very strict gluten free diet is catered for with ease and no fuss.
Absolutely fabulous nice young man met us showed us to our table bought out a tiered plate full of wonderful finger sandwiches all freshly made home made cakes a lemon mouse (nice touch) and their fresh home made scones were so good. We went home with 2 more nice hotel lovely venue
We've been before to this local restaurant and will definitely return. Personal attention of the chef makes a big difference over most other restaurants in this area!

Lovely homely atmosphere. There was only one waitress so service was a bit slow but she was very good in the cir umstances. Sunday roast good value for money. My roast beef was too rare for me but it was a lovely tender cut of beef. My husband and son had the lamb which was very ni e. The starters were very tasty. Overall a pleasant experience and will definitely come again.

Excellent food and service and can’t wait to return
Great food and drink. Brilliant value for money.
Excellent tasting menu evening again. Good wine selection too.
A little gem
We had a lovely afternoon tea with the best view of terrible weather over the sea. Setting is gorgeous and service outstanding.
Excellent customer service, really lovely view out to sea, great food and good value for money! Would like more dessert options please
Wonderful place, absolutely delicious food and wine. Service super friendly.
Enjoyed our second stay at the Bay Tree. Wonderful room and breakfasts once again. This time we had a great dinner - thanks Vlod. One downside for my wife was the glass of Prosecco was rather flat. I enjoyed the Gadds beer (in bottles). Book direct with the hotel rather than using a .com booking site - it could be cheaper and you get breakfast included!
This was our first visit but it won’t be our last. We enjoyed Sunday lunch with excellent food, service and a wonderful view of the sea. The ambience is very relaxed and the decor stylish yet comfortable. We had coffee in the lounge - again with a lovely view. We can highly recommend.
Was made to feel very welcome after a mix up with the booking, food was wonderful.
Thank you for your review. We apologise for any initial confusion with your reservation and we are pleased to hear that you have enjoyed our food! We look forward to welcoming you again. Robert (co-owner / manager)
The whole Sunday lunch experience was really enjoyable, especially the food- main course was really hot too, which is a “must” for me! Will recommend to friends, and definitely come again. Thank you to everyone!
