We chose to leave Devon and now live close to Loughborough; not too close. The Orange Tree is simply superb; on a busy Sunday - our lunch was hot and tasty . An achievable luxury which most kitchens do not care about. My lamb was tasty; nice gravy; cold veg. Small pudding just lets the price off the hook. All... More

The Orange tree used to the place I went to..before I moved away. This place is the best. Great food, and great drinks. Staff amazing too..Just one question, you used to do a cocktail called Centenario, which I absolutely loved. Can I have the recipe? :)

Friendly service crew and good food. Could do with a few more vegetarian options on the menu, however. The cocktails are a dream! Clean, warm, and a very inclusive atmosphere.

I went to the Orange tree loughborough with a friend for lunch. The staff were really friendly and the food was really tasty and good value for money. I had chicken fajitas and the homemade choc waffle sundae. Both of which I would have again. I would definetely recommend the Orange tree to anyone visiting loughborough.

The food in this place is beautiful. The drinks are equally as nice, particularly the cocktails. The service could be some want improved. When the place is busy the bar staff don't look at the customers or have a strategy to ensure people are being served in order. Last time I went I waited 50 minutes at the bar before... More

I've been in The Orange Tree with some friends last weekend. I have tried a jägerbomb and I really liked it. Then I took also a pint of Guinness. It's a nice place where you can have a good time with your friends.
