Situated just off the High Street in the remarkably historic town of Arundel, The Bay Tree is a refreshingly unique venue in this well-known area of West Sussex, and I was very much looking forward to visiting. The quality of food and service is testament to owner Angela Saunders’ vision and drive to create a truly special dining experience. Having taken ownership of The Bay Tree two years ago, the team’s innovative ideas and good old-fashioned hard work have culminated in a dining experience not to be missed.

The combined culinary experience and respect that head chef Deon and Angela bring to the table is clearly demonstrated in the menus, and their rapport is evident in the efficiency of the service the team operates.

As soon as we walked through the door, the friendly and cheerful staff were on-hand to welcome us into this quaint and charming establishment, with its neutral hues and romantic low lighting. As we were escorted to our table, tucked neatly in the corner of the central section of three dining areas, we instantly felt relaxed and began to peruse the evening’s menu. To begin, my partner opted for the sumptuous cauliflower and blue cheese soup served with brown bread, while I elected to go with the perfectly executed pan-seared scallops and black pudding with caramelised shallot purée.

For our main courses we plumped for the rosemary- and garlic-marinated lamb rump with pea and mint purée, garden peas, Dauphinoise potatoes and Port and rosemary jus, with a recommended pairing of Argentine La Trochita malbec. My partner enjoyed the beautifully creamy vegetarian asparagus, mint and pea risotto with shaved Parmesan and truffle oil, and we shared a side salad. For dessert, we devoured a nutty hot chocolate brownie served with ice cream, and the delectable peanut butter parfait enhanced by toffee sauce.

Whether you decide to visit for an afternoon tea, lunch, dinner, or even one of the live music events that are fast becoming a permanent fixture, there is something inherently captivating about The Bay Tree.
