We're Award winning


Our latest award



The Bay name has sustainably sourced food at its heart, and we’ve enjoyed much success in local and national awards schemes. More recently, we’re incredibly proud to say that we won Best New Foodservice Product at the prestigious North East Scotland Food & Drink Awards for our bespoke The Bay Fishcakes.
