The food, the staff, the ambience, the atmosphere, the location all great, however over a 45 minute wait from order to starters arriving was a little long. Another long wait for the mains, although the food was outstanding when it arrived. We ordered coffee to be served with our desserts but 15 minutes after we had finished our coffee we... More

We organised a group of friends to take advantage of a special Mon - Thurs offer...3 course, glass of Prosecco, all for £28. The menu choices were fascinating, and our varied choices were all really pleasing. Everyone agreed that we had an excellent evening out! Get this offer whilst you can!

We go to The Willow Tree in Bourn regularly (any special occasion we can think of) and love it every time. The staff are friendly and welcoming, the decor is beautiful and the food is delicious. You can go for a drink with friends, a celebratory meal or just a light lunch on a sunny afternoon. Love love love 💙

We arrived for a late Sunday luncheon and the place was heaving (we had booked thank goodness), so enjoyed the delightful atmosphere in an eccentrically decorated gastrobar. Service was prompt with a lovely Canadian/American front of house. The menu looked interesting and when it was delivered, looked brilliant.....but was definitely a better looker than a taster....very bland: and no, we... More

The Willow Tree is a pub restaurant serving good quality food in a pleasant village setting. The tables are within the same room as the bar which can make it a little noisy but not excessively so. Tables are solid wood (no cloths) which suits the decor of the room. The menu is not vast, but wide enough to find... More
