Over priced and terrible food. Tasted like it came out of some boil in the bag, horrible and couldn't eat it. All in all we went in for an enjoyable family meal but came out feeling very disappointed. Give this one a miss!

We were visiting Frome and stopped at the Bay Leaf for dinner. The menu was more interesting than many Indian restaurants and the food was delicious. The portions are generous! We would definitely go again when we are in Frome.

Always a friendly welcome from the nice people at the Bay Leaf who always remember my drinks order; a reasonably priced bottle of house white and a pint of Kingfisher. After the platter to share we followed it with two king prawn dishes ; Bengal and a Madras. The prawns may have travelled a long way but they were huge, juicy and very, very tasty. Our trips to the Bay Leaf never disappoint and it's a venue well worth a visit.

We were waiting for a table for about 20 mins, was asked if we wanted a drink which was good. After this we were seated ; it took about 45 minutes to be asked if we wanted a drink/food. We also weren't all given menus, I had to take one from the bar. When the food came it was really tasty but not boiling hot which was annoying. Would have liked my plate to be warm too but it wasn't. Lighting was nice but any darker and I would have fallen asleep. Also the music sounded like I was playing the sims 1. Seems like there are a lot if good reviews so maybe I just had a one off bad experience. Wouldn't go again though.
