A wonderful experience from start to finish. It's pricey, but you get what you pay for. A wonderful meal, delicious drinks and outstanding service - attentive but respectful of your space, which I think is so important for a romantic meal. A lovely touch by the chef to decorate our dessert plates with 'Happy Anniversary' too. A definite must for... More

This was our first visit to celebrate my husband's 76th birthday, The choice of food was limited as my husband is allergic to fish but what we ate was superb We would have liked a wider choice of European wines as we are not keen on New World wines which we felt were overpriced for what they were. The service... More

Our second visit to The Willow Tree but the food experience on this occasion fell somewhat short. Disappointing as our feedback to freinds and colleagues after our first had been so positive. Staff were excellent, very attentive and pleasant. Nice welcome and we liked the atmosphere albeit, the couple next to us having a domestic - the language used was... More

The Willow Tree or 'how to get it perfectly right' The atmosphere and staff is very pleasant, the food is superb, and great wine selection (It's all about quality of choice rather than a long endless list). We have dined here many times and will again and again!!

We visited this restaurant in June of this year and had a fabulous meal so we decided to return with parents as a thank you to them. We were not disappointed! All the little thoughtful extras were still in place and the staff are absolutely superb at their jobs - they know exactly who is eating and drinking what and... More

Alison & I visited the Willow Tree for the 1st time last night - what a great meal - perfect for a special occasion. Starters we chose were cheese soufflé & terrine - shared - pity my wife snaffled more than me! Moral - don't share, (after 32 years of marriage, you'd think I would have learned!) The 2 mains...

We were given a gift voucher for this restaurant and enjoyed a wonderful 3 course meal there on 10th September. The food was excellent as was the wine and Rita and the staff were very pleasant and attentive. We will certainly hope to visit again!

I have wanted to visit this restaurant for many years and did so on 06/09/2014. I was certainly not disappointed. The food, the service, the ambience were all superb. The staff were on hand at all times but were not intrusive. If there was one thing we would have liked- and this is a purely personal choice - it would... More
