I'm afraid it was a little disappointing. Rough cut sandwiches and not many of them. The strawberry I went to eat towards the end, had mould growing on it.

I can't tell you how much a relief it was to find you on line and use your services for my parents who have been stuck in lockdown in Ramsgate. I live in Australia and ordered afternoon tea and some lunch last week. My parents raved about the food quality and are already planning their next order. Thank you for offering such a great service especially at this difficult period for my folks not being able to get out. Im looking forward to staying with you next time we are over to visit, hopefully in the Autumn. Ross

Sunday roast ordered which was lovely and just enough for my parents though I would have liked 3 types of veg, not 2. Delivery was late but guess there were lots of orders to fulfil as it was Mother’s Day, not a problem for us. Can’t comment on the atmosphere as it was a home delivery during lockdown but the computer needs a rating so I’ve put 4 stars.

I contacted the Bay to ask if they could deliver a cream tea for my Aunts 80th birthday. They were only to pleased to help. Alistair took the booking he was so helpful. I asked if they could put a diabetic box of chocolates in so the chef made them how nice is that. My Aunt was so surprised she said the man that delivered the tea was very polite. She said the tea was lovely so much food. Thank you Alistair, Robert and of course chef.

Bought a takeaway for my parents during lockdown so can’t really rate the atmosphere. The delivery was punctual and they thoroughly enjoyed the fisherman’s pie and slow cooked beef, followed by fruit crumble. Not a huge portion but enough and made a nice change from cooking. Thank you Tracey

Thank you so much for our home delivery of Sunday dinner. It was amazing. Generous portions and tasty food. Would certainly order again and have recommended it to friends on facebook and instagram. Excellent lockdown treat. (Have given atmosphere 5 stars although we were at home it was certainly stress free dining)
