We have just had a lovely meal at Orange Tree. We visited 12 months ago and their high standard has been maintained. Three superb course plus a tipsy sorbet, pink prosecco and a bottle of Aussie Shiraz for £120 can't be beaten. One of our favourite restaurants. We will definitely be back!

All food was cooked perfectly and the flavours were delicious. The service was attentive but unhurried, so we were able to relax.... More

Excellent food and service. Friendly owner. My wife had the trio of pork while I had the sirloin steak. Both excellent. Our 2nd visit and will return.
