Have eat at this restaurant for many years and it has changed hands many times through the years. We went for Sunday lunch as our last meal there had been lovely we were sure we would not be disappointed. However, total let down, I had roast beef which was over cooked and tough, the Yorkshire puddings were tasteless, I like... More

My lady friend and I called in to this pub / restaurant. Greeted by polite, friendly and very helpful staff and quickly served with good quality drinks at good prices. There were some seats available inside this tastefully restored period venue. Unfortunately wherever we went, we were followed by truly awful piped muzak. Even the toilets had some low grade...

We were very disappointed that at least 5 items from the specials and main menu were unavailable to order at around 8pm on a Friday night! All the special steaks were off and the Lamb and Pork!!! How can you offer specials and advertise them when the pub doesn't seem to order enough to offer? I would say the food... More

Up until now every meal we've had at the Yews has been excellent so so we were excited to try their new menu this May of heritage food. We were really looking forward to the bubble and squeak but were really quote disappointed with it overall. The base was very sloppy, the pork belly was minimal, my soft poached egg... More

My husband and I have very little alone time together with having a busy family life and his fire service commitments. So when we have an opportunity to go somewhere, we want good quality of food, service and ambience to make the most of our night. .... I have never been disappointed by chosing The Yews on those occasions and... More

We choose to have a meal at The Yews as one of our party is a coeliac and I noticed on the website that they had a new gluten free menu. We have been to many restaurants and this one has the most comprehensive menu for gluten free meals. We could not fault the service, the food nor the cost.... More

Been to the views now 3 times over the last couple of months, and not a single bad thing to say. Really friendly service, really good food, decent prices. Definitely somewhere I'd recommend to anyone
