Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

First Class I just want to say a huge thank you to Joe and the team for all the help and great service we received prior to our dining on Saturday evening. Nothing was too much trouble for the team, even though I had to...make a number of calls about dietary requirements etc. The food was first class, as always, piping hot, presented beautifully and more importantly, so tasty! Thank you once again - we will be back.More

A group of four of us visited the Bay Tree Restaurant for breakfast on February 3rd. It was for a reunion and to celebrate a significant birthday for one of the group. We ordered variations from the breakfast menu and specified either brown or white...toast. Three meals arrive promptly and then mine followed. Instead of the full English with brown toast, it was 2poached eggs on white toast. The waiter said that it was a genuine mistake and that he would replace the order” within a few minutes” . As there. Is nothing worse than a cold English breakfast, I asked my friends to start their meals whilst I watched. They had almost finished their meals when mine arrived, initially accompanied by the wrong type of toast. Under normal circumstances, if I had been the initiator of the occasion, I would have conveyed my displeasure at the time. I telephoned the restaurant that evening to report the above and spoke to the person who had served us. I accepted that an unfortunate mistake had been made but in my view, it’s how a restaurant deals with that error that really matters. Given the plethora of restaurants in the Brecks/ Wickersley suburbs of Rotherham, perhaps the Bay Tree would benefit from improving its present customer service rather than appearing to rely on past success.More

Tried this place for the 1st time for lunch and was impressed. Only a relatively small place so you would expect service to be good , which it was. Quality of food was excellent, plenty of choice of both food and drink. Reason for 4/5...is I’m looking forward to going again to try some other food and see if they are consistent, if so then a 5/5 will be in the offing. We had the Gyros stack, which was fresh and very tasty, good sized portions for the cost.More

We went a year a go to the day, food was amazing. We came back yesterday and was disappointed, the starters were good but mains felt like they were making cost savings. Chicken kebabs were chopped chicken thigh, which is fine but there wasn't much...of it. The chips were hard and barely got any salad. It felt like it came straight out of the takeaway rather than cooked for a restaurant. Service was good but not sure I would come back, which is a shame as I love greek food.More

Absolutely beautiful meal, so fresh and wonderful efficient service. The best mussels we have ever had and the swordfish with pesto was to die for. The canapes and cocktails were also delicious.

After reading some of the reviews I must have gone to a different restaurant, We went with a group of friends on a Saturday night and after having to pre order our meals we bought over priced drinks from the bar and sat down to...have our meals, I had ordered the mixed grill which arrived looking very sorry, it appeared to have been cooked previously and then warmed up before serving and was mostly dry, the chips were like nails and the meat very dry accompanied by two small tasteless dips. the only hot part of the meal was the sausage it was difficult to ascertain if it was a mixed grill or an attempt at a Greek dish but it failed on both counts, there was two pieces of pitta which were toasted which is a first for me on a mixed grill no mushrooms no tomato and a small amount of what appeared to be salad a few olives, sliced onion and some garnish. This is an honest review from someone who has spent the last 30 years visiting Greek Islands and Greek mainland and to try and pass this food off as Greek I find it misleading. JohnMore

Amazing. The staff were exceptional. The food was amazing. Although it does look small there's plenty of room and the bistro is decorated lovely. We came as a party of 19 and we were well catered for. Food came out at the same time and...everyone thoughly enjoyed their meals. The staff were amazing. So lovely and attentive. The fact we had our own bar and area with a private toilet was also a hit. It felt as though we had our own function room. Thank you ever so much again for catering for our large party and for making my grandparents 80th birthday meal absolutely amazingMore
