Dinner for four

Excellent food. Excellent service. There were four of us who all chose different meals. We were all very happy with the quality and presentation of all the dishes. Our first visit but definitely not our last!

My husband and I found the Willow Tree from trip advisor when looking for a restaurant for our anniversary. We were very happy with our choice! All the food was very good (we had four courses) - prawn salad starter, lamb sausage, pave of beef, ice cream, bread and butter pudding and cheese board. The staff were friendly and attentive...

An excellent restaurant in an 18th century house hidden in the heart of Taunton. From the perfect kir royal on the terrace overlooking a stream to the perfect salmon and a half bottle of Chablis this made a perfect evening for a wedding anniversart dinner. We will be back soon.

We had a fantastic evening at the Willow Tree. The staff were very attentive and caring, actually. Every part of the meal was delicious even the bread was some the most aromatic bread I've ever tasted. It was clear that a lot of care and attention had gone into preparing the meal and everything about the restaurant. I loved it... More
