This was our second visit & again didn't disappoint. The food was freshly cooked, came on warm plates, large portions. The Staff are very attentive & friendly. Really enjoyed our food. We will be going again & would recommend.

I've only been at lunch time, but on every occasion it has been good quality food. The service is always good too. The last visit was a Christmas lunch with work. It was a limited menu - but you expect that at Christmas. Would definately go again, and would like to see how evening service compares.

Food is very good and worth a visit , everything we ordered , smoked haddock , poached egg / homemade burger / salmon was very well prepared and cooked . Service also very good. What lets The Cherry Tree down is the decor - 20 years out of date and in need of a fresh design. If they had that... More

Usual problem of over priced wine and steaks but menu is otherwise very good with a good choice of interesting, well... More

Reserved a table a week in advance. Ordered starter (bread and oil platter which I assume is quick to prepare) took 30mins for us to get it. Obviously forgot about us. Took a further 20 mins after finishing the starter for the main to come out. Then waited 30 mins for our plates to be cleared from the table so... More

A fantastic evening had by the whole party. The service was impeccable and friendly. Ashley and the serving staff provided a comfortable and pleasant atmosphere. The food was well enjoyed by all. A full round of empty plates! Will certainly be returning for further occasions.
