Disappointing

Ate here with my daughter before a film at the cinema. We were shown to a tiny little table upstairs in a corner, where standing up was a problem due to the low ceiling. I ordered the fish stew, which arrived under-cooked. I mentioned it to the waitress, who took it away and brought another... read more

Went last night with two friends before going to Malvern Theatre. My fish stew was superb, so much so that I am trying to re-create it myself with what I hope will be similar ingredients. The service and friendliness of staff were excellent. These days I am more often than not disappointed when I eat out, but last night's experience... More

Nicely set back from the noise and bustle of Church Street but cramped surroundings and poor quality forod, unimaginatively cooked.

I prefer somewhere with warmth and comfort. The decor here is contemporary and little cushioning on the chairs. Food ok but not a particularly interesting menu and pricing toward the higher end Nothing wrong just too ordinary for me

We often eat here during summer trips to Malvern Theatre as it is so pleasant to sit outside in the courtyard. There are several tables downstairs too and more upstairs. The menu is thoughtfully prepared and limited, which I prefer to long tomes of microwaveable stuff. Service is good and you are never rushed. A lovely place to eat.

I have been to this restaurant a few times over the last few years. It is tucked away in a courtyard area of Church Street and can look a bit unpromising at first. The downstairs area can feel a bit chilly in winter when the door opens but I find it warms up once most people are seated. There is... More

We were in a bit of a rush which wasn't a problem. The three fish salad, followed by a slice of cake and an excellent coffee were all perfectly prepared and presented. Great food and lovely service. It was a bit cold in there, but otherwise 100% recommended.

I've been here quite a few times over the years but recently, it's been really poor. It is often cold in the winter, as stated on some reviews, but it's not consistent that's the problem. Yes, they have a specials menu, but it has never changed at all in the years I've been coming, so it not special - never... More

If you're going to advertise squid on the menu you really ought to be capable of cooking it. It was rubbery and bland as was the rest of the meal. Nice service though but no atmosphere and it wasn't very warm. Never again

20m from the high street (Church Street) down a small alley way rest this little restaurant. The Fig Tree is a very pleasant place that serves a variety of home made food of quality. From sandwich to jazzy pastas, risotto, excellent salads (go for the 3 fish salad!) and selection of of specials. This is a real gem of a... More
