Went here based on reviews and wasn't disappointed. Had full English and Vegetarian breakfasts which were both lovely and beautifully presented. Friendly service. Has lots of seating at the back and cooks to order but offers some coach friendly options for those on a time budget.

We were recommended the Bay Tree Cafe by the landlady of the B&B we were staying at nearby. We went for dinner on a Saturday night. We couldn't believe there only seemed to be us and one other table in that night. I really hope we just happened to eat on a quiet night, because they deserve to do really... More

We were staying overnight in Tewksbury and having visited the abbey during the day , noticed this little restaurant opposite the main car park. We returned in the evening and although we hadn't made a reservation were soon found a table by a friendly waitress. After ordering we were served with bread and a lovely "chimmichuri " sauce , which... More

Visited for lunch, having seen reviews, but hadn't booked. Although busy, they found a table for 5 of us. The menu is fantastic - really unusual offerings, and an amazing kids menu, with tasty alternatives to the usual sausages and chips, pizza and chips etc! Some more of the family arrived in Tewkesbury and the staff found some extra seats... More

We enjoyed steamed mussels, chicken schnitzel and strawberry roulade... all of it absolutely beautiful. The atmosphere was lovely and staff very attentive and the prices were great. We'll definitely be visiting again soon!!!!

Very handy when visiting Tewkesbury Abbey. Popped in for coffee and morning snacks. We were the only customers which can feel slightly odd. Served by pleasant waitress. Quality feel to the establishment, very clean and tidy. Nice food and drinks, reasonable prices.

We had lunch at The Bay Tree Cafe on a busy Saturday lunchtime. The cafe is clean, spacious and the staff very welcoming. The sandwiches were beautifully fresh and the baked potato was good too! The toilets are spotless. I recommend this cafe very highly!

We were visiting Tewkesbury and looking for a place to have lunch when we found the Bay Tree. The menu wasn't too big (a positive not negative point) which meant that everything was individually prepared. The prices are not expensive and competitive with other places in the town. My wife had the tangine and I had the liver and bacon... More
