My boyfriend and I had a wonderful evening here for his birthday. We had been recommended by a work colleague and had been once before (previously for my birthday). The food is excellent, and interesting, but not pretentious. As before, the service was extremely attentive without being overbearing. You are made to feel instantly welcome. All this made for a...

This restaurant is superb. I was taken for a meal by my son and the whole experience was amazing. The layout is very customer friendly so that you do not feel as if you are invading somebody else's evening. The menu is excellent and the meal was extraordinary. Both of us declined a dessert rather than lose the flavours already... More

My wife and I were having difficulty finding a good restaurant within striking distance of Chard to celebrate my stepdaughters birthday. Having read the reviews we chose The Willow Tree and how pleased we were to have done so. Rita through whom we booked the table for Saturday 19 April was most charming both via our exchange of e mails... More

This restaurant simply doesn't disappoint on the many occasions I've been there for a meal with my wife or friends. The food is to an extremely high standard whilst using local produce to top off the tongue changing experience you feel from it's fantastic flavours. The wine menu is to die for and the advice on wine is there to... More

we had a very good evening with such a relaxed atmosphere. The service was very excellent but not in your face all the time. Will be back for a return dinner with friends next time, to let them share this dinning experience.

My wife and I booked a meal for my birthday on a Tuesday evening. From start to finish the service by all the staff was perfect. Pleasant, helpful and at no time were we rushed. For starters my wife had home made duck terrine which she said was delicious. I had smoked salmon but if this salmon had ever touched... More

We had a wonderful and very romantic meal for two here on a Friday night. Superb food, a really rather nice wine list and quality service. We were the last two left in the restaurant late in the evening and at no point were we made to feel rushed or as though we should be ending our evening. The menu... More
