Booked a table for 4 for Thursday night for my partners birthday. Glad we booked as got quite busy which was a nice surprise for a Thursday, so must have a very good reputation for food. First time any of us had eaten at The Willow Tree, and I will definitely be making another visit. The chicken was the best... More

We had lunch here today (Saturday) after not visiting for almost a year (not deliberately absent) and to be honest weren't sure what to expect. We hadn't had a bad meal here since the current owners took over, but were very conscious of some unfavourable reviews recently. Any fears soon evaporated as the service was excellent and the food as... More

Recently had a meal at the Willow Tree in Bourn. Well the steak just had to be up there with the best I've ever eater. I tend to like my steaks "medium-well" and sometimes they're a bitt too red or sometimes they're a bit to dry! But the chef at the Willow Tree does it perfectly. To top it off,... More

As always, The Willow Tree came up trumps in both atmosphere and quality. Their menu rotation was again a hit - from a dessert perspective the 'playful plate of chocolate' is one of the best we've ever tasted. Would recommend highly for couples and families alike. Well worth the trip out to Bourn.

Situated in the pretty village of Bourn on route to the Wysing Arts Centre we dropped in for lunch recently and had an enjoyable meal. Celebrations of weddings and birthdays helped to fill the place. The quality of the food was excellent overall and the only quibble was that the roast beef was a little thin. The service was excellent... More

Went one Monday evening, party of 4 & food was lovely, cooked well & plenty of taste, the pulled pork burger needs a special mention, sooooo good. The only problem we had, was that the food took ages to come, we didn't have a starter, which may have been part of the problem, but we had to chase it &... More

Was taken here as a surprise for my birthday by my husband. Never been before. Cannot speak highly enough of the top notch service, delicious food and wonderful ambience. The meal I had chosen had just run out, but the apology from the proprietor was genuine and I was offered my next choice at the lower price of my first... More

Only stopped here for drinks but it was lovely and relaxing. Sat out the back on the decking with the lovely lights and the decking heaters just to take the chill off. Perfect if not a tad expensive.

I loved the Willow Tree from my first visit. I took my partner there and when we were looking for a wedding reception venue with a difference we called them. After a couple of initial meetings we signed up and paid our deposit. Jess looked after us through the whole process. We found the Willow Tree to be really affordable,... More
