Just wow. My wife and I just left after one of the nicest meals ever. The food was fantastic and the service was exceptional! I had three courses of heaven, and a desert of soaking biscuits in wine was one of the nicest experiences ever. We will be returning very very soon. A definite yes from us.

Whenever Lady Katherine and myself are in Malvern for the Theatre, we usually like to eat out and we usually opt for Italian. I, however fancied something a bit different and found The Fig Tree, tucked away in a neat little courtyard, just minutes from the Theatre. Booking a table was easy ( I definitely recommend booking, it gets busy).... More

Had lunch here with a friend on a weekday. The food was very good and the service was about the right pace; efficient without being too hurried. We had the Tiramisu for dessert and it was fabulous - a proper homemade version! The only thing I would say is that the interior seems a bit clinical and not very "cosy".... More

As visitors to Malvern we didn't know any restaurants but liked the look of The Fig Tree. We weren't disappointed. Excellent service, nice atmosphere and decor and very tasty food. Highly recommend for pre theatre dinner.

I have been coming to the Fig Tree for many years and the food and service has been excellent every time. They offer really interesting menu choices as well as their excellent Specials Menu. I thoroughly enjoyed their Three Fish Salad - hake, salmon and sea bream fillets (not a bone in sight) freshly cooked on a bed of well... More

Yet again I have to write another review on The Fig Tree. The food is absolutely superb and the service second to none. What not to like! After last night I would thoroughly recommend the entrecôte - melted in your mouth, and the black currant ice cream to due for. Can't wait to go back in July - always a... More

I had a seafood risotto that was completely tasteless. I had to order a wedge of lemon and season the food myself and even then it was disappointing. Why can't we produce decent, value for money food in this country? Always better to eat at home! The staff were very nice however.

We never know where to go locally to eat everywhere the food taste the same, until we visited this exceptional little restaurant on middle of Great Malvern. The young lady who served us was very professional, food was superbly fresh and nicely presented. We will definitely go back again.
