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.

Just had my third afternoon tea at The Baytree, everyone’s been different and everyone’s been lovely. The great service, ambience and views remain the same but you never know what special something is going to be on that top tier, so I’ll definately be back

Their food was amazing, the taste, the presentations n the quality were all above the standard, the sitting where you can directly enjoy the sea view was fantastic. We have the service from Floyd was brilliant, he really did look after us well, base on what we experienced, we already thinking to have our Christmas party there. Thanks Bay Tree, we had a wonderful afternoon, oh yes, one more thing needs to mention, their coffee was so good, n you will want another cup.

Excellent meal in beautiful surroundings and service to match. The chef came out of the kitchen to chat to all of the diners, which made the experience extra special. The ‘banter’ between the chef and waiter was very entertaining and we loved the whole experience.

This was one of the best afternoons teas we have ever had. The entire experience was a joy from start to finish. We were made to feel so welcome. Vlod, the chef, even gave us a guided tour of the hotel, even showing us some of the guest rooms. Such a lot of thought has gone into the renovation of the hotel. We met Alistair, the owner, and wished him every success with the venture. We all hope it becomes the success it deserves. The sandwiches were fresh and very tasty. Then there was a strawberry compote topped with fresh strawberries. A beautiful and rich coffee slice and finally the largest scone I have ever seen with plentiful jam and cream. If I had to make a criticism it would be that there was only one cake but then I would be being picky as we didn't miss it.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Bay Tree Hotel which overlooks the beach and iterestingly has a Harry Potter themed decor. The owners Alister and Robert were very helpful and welcoming and this time we had an upgraded room with our own private patio and excellent shower room facilities. The menu included many fish dishes well cooked and presented from a helpful friendly chef.Likewise breakfast where most of the ingredients were locally sourced. Choice beers and wines were available also. I would warmly recommend a stay at the Bay Tree. Restful and friendly.
