We founded The Bay Tree out of a deep love for real food, for food that is fresh and honest . We also felt that Kinver needed a place for people to meet each other, relax and enjoy a meal.
We only use the best ingredients here at The Bay Tree: wherever possible we use local produce, organic vegetables, fresh fish, and free-range meats. We strive to make each and every dish a wholesome expression of our love for food, life, and living.
The Bay Tree was born in March 2020. Our goal is to make the Bay Tree blossom into a thriving village community. We offer a restaurant and bar, with quality, homely food to suit all appetites and budgets. Sympathetically designed, with room for families, groups and parties of all sizes, we want any customer to feel like they can call The Bay Tree their extended home. Want to hire an area, whole floor or even the whole restaurant for a special occasion? Just ask us: we would only be too happy help!

We went for Sunday lunch and as usual couldn’t fault with the food ,we have two courses which we find most sufficient and satisfying.Price is most reasonable for two or three course on the Sunday lunch menu and quite a good choice for all courses. If there are larger groups of people it can get a little noisy but overall still enjoyable.

we always enjoy the food but we eat early (6.00pm) and the restaurant is very cold at this time so we have to keep our overcoats on. This detracts from our enjoyment.

Our first time here and will definitely be going back. The food was good and portion sizes generous. The staff were very friendly, the service couldn't really be faulted. We particularly liked that the chef came out to speak to the diners. If we had one slight criticism, it was that we were a bit on the cold side. We were sat in a corner and while the middle of the room was warm, the heat from the wall mounted heater seemed to be passing us by. Otherwise, we had a very good meal and will be taking friends next time to sample their lunch menu.

The sirloin steak was lovely, I asked for rare and it was spot on, as was my husband’s Rossini. Staff were very friendly. The atmosphere was great - no feeling of being rushed. We chose to dine upstairs, for us a good move, we felt very Covid safe in the spot we were given.

Dined here last night my family party of six and everyone was really impressed with the quality of their food on every course. The staff were all excellent, attentive and very friendly, nothing was too much trouble and it was a very busy night. Will certainly be coming again and will happily recommend it to everyone. Excellent all round.

Our starters were superb, nothing unusual but the whitebait were fat and luscious and the pate was smooth, creamy and tasty. The beef was a little too well done for our taste but the chef has to please the majority who obviously like meat like this. We eat very few veg so no comment other than the roast potatoes were lovely. Only had a bread and butter pudding between us which was enough after the pile that had gone before!! Wine is very reasonable with lots under £25.

Nice food with plenty to choose from. However didn’t like the fact the server was stood around the corner of the table and kept popping her head round to see if we had finished eating. Made me feel like we had to rush

Highly recommend the Bay Tree,
The food is excellent, Sunday Lunch 3courses is very good value, everything that should be hot is hot.
Staff are very welcoming and your food is served by several staff members so your meals arrive at the same time, with the right amount of time left between courses.
Already looking forward to our next visit.

Food was excellent as always but they have a new front of house and I can honestly say she was fantastic. Constantly checking we were happy with our seats, drinks, food but without being overbearing, a definite asset to The Bay Tree.

Met up with friends we had not seen for a year or more at the appointed time and were quickly shown to our table and our order taken after 5 minutes of studying the menu. The starters arrived shortly but a slight glitch in that I had the wrong starter, this was speedily rectified . The rest of the meal was served correctly and efficiently and was to a very high standard, the portions were most generous.

Went august , staff outstanding food outstanding. Went sat . Sent upstairs , even thou tables empty down stairs . Front of house not very friendly . Had to get specials menu , no wine or drinks menu , on table . My husband usually has the same thing when we go was disappointed that it wasn’t up to usual, and was smaller . I was taking friends , but don’t think I will . Disappointing , I would recommend , with a hope it was a clitch. Bring the old bay tree .
