After a busy day we visited the Willowtree with our clients and we could not have wished for a better evening. Having eaten in most of the 'good' restaurants in the area we can honestly advise this is the best. Actually it would be very hard to better irrespective of where you are in the UK. Highly recommended! Excellent!

This was the first time we'd been to the Willow Tree and we were not disappointed. A very warm welcome and G&T's on the lovely little riverside terrace with plenty of time to choose from the limited, but we'll thought out menu. Food was excellent, well prepared and delicately cooked, some of the nicest food I've eaten in Taunton. Service... More

I decided to take my partner out for a meal for his birthday and did a lot of research on places to eat because I wanted it to be special. I came across The Willow Tree, which had fantastic reviews online. I am so happy I booked in with them. The food was outstanding and full of flavour especially the... More

I have been to The Willow Tree about 5 times now and every time the food has been beautiful. The Restaurant is lovely and in summer extra special as you can have a drink on their outside balcony. The young waiter that served us was very knowledgeable about the food on the menu . The service is always attentive without... More

Dinner on 16th July 2014. We came here to celebrate my son's Graduation at Exeter University. One word describes the whole experience: "Perfect". We are a family of 5 with differing tastes - 2 daughters of 20 and 16 and son aged 21. All thoroughly enjoyed this dining experience. Firstly the setting - it's tucked down a narrow alley with...

This was the second time we have visited this restaurant and consequently our expectations were high, as the first visit was a resounding success. We were not disappointed, the standard of service and food was excellent. We were pampered without being overwhelmed; the staff knew instinctively when to approach the table and when to stand back. The food, as before,... More

The Willow Tree is, from the outside, a small pretty building, that I have walked past many times not realising what a gem lay within We rang on the day we wanted to dine, a Saturday, and they were fully booked, but rang us back (a nice touch) to say they had a cancellation, which we readily accepted. I am... More

We had a really lovely evening at the Willow Tree. The food was exceptional and beautifully presented, the staff were charming and offered really good service attentive but not intrusive. A very good wine list reasonably priced and I especially enjoyed the recommendation of dessert wine which was a sherry which I would not have chosen but was a gem.... More

Our 2nd time here and another great meal served by efficient attentive staff. Other reviews accurately cover it all, make sure you book in advance, as twice before I have tried to get a table for the next day and failed. This is a great place for a romantic meal for two or any other excuse that you can make... More

After reading the reviews on tripadvisor for The Willow Tree I was so impressed that I booked a table for dinner on 14th June as a Father’s Day treat for my Dad, although a day early. The food was every bit as delicious as I was expecting, for starters we both had the Montgomery Cheese soufflés which were superb. The... More
