Bay Tree Coffee House & Restaurant

Since 1988, Sue Farmer's delightful restaurant and coffee house on the main street in Holywood has been attracting customers from miles around.

It's a charming, homely place where you'll find great home baking - especially the gorgeous cinnamon scones, which are a house speciality.

Vegetarian dishes and organic salads are very appealing too, especially in summer when you can also eat out on a patio in fine weather.

Every morning, Sue bakes dozens of her famous cinnamon scones for the Bay Tree Coffee House - and you can buy them (and many other good things) at her shop, Go!, beside the café.

And you can make some of the favourite recipes at home too, as Sue's cookbook, Bay Tree Recipes, is available directly from the restaurant.

There's an interesting wine list - and special evening events are sometimes held, eg pairing wine and craft beer.

No reservations for lunch, but they are required in the evening.

Seats 55 (outdoors, 8). Open Mon-Sat 8-5 & Sun 10-3. D Fri only 5.30-9.30. House wine about £12.50. SC 10% on Fri D; children welcome. wheelchair accessible (not to toilets). Parking. Closed Christmas 4 days, Easter 3 days & 12 July 4 days. MasterCard, Visa, Switch. abbreviations

Eat & Stay establishments are chosen for their commitment to showcasing local produce and Irish hospitality. Outstanding Location, building or atmosphere
