During the past four years we have eaten here many times as my son worked his way through the Uni. We've also tried other places in loughborough, but quite honestly none of them come up to the consistency and high quality of the food offered here. And as long as it's before 7pm (when food ends) the staff are always... More

My daughter brought me here as she thought I would like the food (she often goes here for the cocktails!) and I was not disappointed. Warm welcome, nice layout and delicious and generous food portions served quickly despite it being busy. We were all very impressed.

Having often walked past The Orange Tree me and my partner finally decided to give it a go. From the outside the pub looks quite grotty and inviting. Once through the door you are greeted by a large open space bar and large beer garden (although this could do with a clean). Staff were friendly and helpful however nobody checks... More

Hi Jo Thanks for the feedback we are glad that you decided to pay us a visit! We agree, the front of our pub is starting to look a little tired now and we have our sights set on replacement render and a neaten up in the not too distant future! Sorry to hear that you did not receive a... More

Fantastic, extensive cocktail and food menu - also has a good selection of beers. Without a doubt the best place to eat and drink in Loughborough. If you go here and don't have a Gentleman's Mojito then you are crazy! Great bar.

Now I must admit I've been a regular at this particular Orange Tree for a number of years but there's a reason I'm a regular, in my opinion it's the best bar in Loughborough, and believe me when I say there's no shortage of bars! It has a nice chilled out atmosphere a lovely beer garden and the music is... More

Thank you for taking time out to give us feedback! I noticed you mentioned our art work - did you know that all the prints that we display are available to buy? They come as framed or unframed prints direct from the artist, we take no commission so everything goes to the artist - as it should! If you are... More

Visited with our parents. Very reasonable prices we had wraps and sandwiches. All came with a well dressed salad and we added two (generous) bowls of home cut chips. Lovely period interior with mix of 4,6 and 8 seat tables. I was surprised at how spacious it was and a decent pub garden. Staff we're attentive without being pestering. Highly... More

A group of 7 of us ate here recently for my 30th birthday. We all really enjoyed the evening. I believe they stop serving food at 7pm, but that wasn't a problem, we placed our orders before then and there were no issues. Everyone really enjoyed the food which was cooked fresh. I opted to have a starter and a... More

I have had the unfortunate experience of spending a couple of hours at this place which I was very disappointed at. I had noticed dirt, insects, unclean glasses.

I visit The Orange Tree often, and find it to be a very warm and relaxed place to meet up with friends. The staff are always very happy and friendly and seem to really enjoy their work, which adds to the great atmosphere.

had to send my pulled pork ciabatta back as it came with coleslaw when I asked for it without, didn't mind one bit as when it came back it was delicious. Loved the chilled atmosphere too with no pressure to pay and leave. Was tempted to buy the framed Rolling Stones poster from the wall, one of many quirky pieces... More
