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, we offer 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.

I haven’t checked out yet but this has been a lovely stat. I mainly came to get some space and peace to refocus my research project. Lovely hotel. Wonderful Sunday lunch. I just had afternoon tea and I’ll never need to eat again. I’ll be booking again but next time bring my husband and just have a holiday. Thanks for helping me break out of my box room. The sea air is wonderful.

An excellent Bistro hotel which has been exquisitely refurbished. The owners are charming and made our stay extremely comfortable.They deserve thanks for their provision of meals to the local community particularly the elderly during these Covid times.

We had a really relaxing stay at the Bay Tree in mid-July - our first trip outside London in months. The sea-view room was lovely, well appointed and spotlessly clean. The full English (veggie) breakfast was one of the nicest I have ever had. Thanks to Robert, Alistair and all the staff for a wonderful break. We hope to be able to come back and stay again soon and I would encourage anyone thinking of making a trip to Broadstairs to reserve a room at the Bay Tree!

Fabulous value for money although we had just come out of lockdown it wasn’t overly busy for a lunchtime but food was great, one tiny small thing to consider is just to check on the customers more regularly to see if they want anything else ........

Thank you for your feedback. We are particularly pleased to hear that you have enjoyed our meal since we have re-opened post-lockdown. We have noted your comments re checking on guests - we are still working on getting the right balance of staff to reduced guest numbers and still returning a small profit and this is very useful information we can act on.

I ordered By phone and collected (due to Covid 19) an afternoon tea. Delivery was offered however I was happy to collect. Staff very helpful from booking through to collection. Afternoon tea itself was absolutely amazing- very fresh, lots of choice and dietary requirements accommodated. Excellent value for money. Highly recommended. Thank you very much.

I ordered an afternoon tea delivery for my father’s birthday. The whole process was straightforward and the afternoon tea arrived at our address at the allotted time. The afternoon tea was plentiful and delicious. The food was packaged well and was in perfect condition on arrival. Everyone enjoyed it very much. We would definitely order again but one suggestion would be to have a savoury afternoon tea option for those who are not so keen on cakes.
