Have been going to the Palm Tree for several years and have always found the service attentive and efficient. Food is always well cooked and carefully prepared with attention to hygiene. Chicken, bacon cheese melt is becoming a favourite with discerning customers. Proper fish and chips is another mouth watering meal to enjoy Deserves 5 stars

Good place to eat for lunch or for late drinking. Lamin is a great barman and always makes you feel welcome. Do good sunday night entertainment with dancers and an unbelievable contortionist, he really is a must see. Had a couple of lunches and evening meals here and all were good. Basic menu but great if you don't want anything... More
