Great Food and friendly hosts!

We had a meal here on recommendation of our Bed & Breakfast host. Food was excellent and since the place was relatively empty it was great to chat up with the owners behind the counter. Young couple who are trying to set up the place.

The food and the atmosphere are great with very pleasant staff. There is quite a big range of food on the menu. The surrounding countryside is very pleasant and quite quiet so there is always lots of parking.

This was our fourth visit each time food has been excellent, friendly welcoming service from new owners. We eat out quite a lot and I would say the best place to eat in the area.

I had eaten here twice under the old management and had loved the cuisine so I was a bit disappointed to find it had changed hands when I arranged to have a blind date here. I emailed in advance to ask him if it was possible to walk up May Hill from the inn and got a fast and friendly... More

Didn't realise this pub had changed hands. Stopped off for lunch and found the menu disappointing. Very limited and not very inspired. I was told I could order off the evening menu, nbut it 'would have to be made fresh' and could take some time. I would have assumed all the food is made fresh. I ordered quiche but asked... More

We're disappointed with your review, but understand the benefits of critique and will take your comments and learn from them. At The Yew Tree all food is cooked fresh, but some of our evening dishes take more time to prepare than the lunchtime menu. We wanted to make you aware of this as we would not want you to wait...

A lunchtime family meal and we were welcomed like friends, Peter there landlord mad us feel welcome, but was not over powering in doing as some can be. The meals were great including meeting the needs of an 18 month old. The food was very good and the desserts were worth the trip up the hill alone. We look forward... More

We stopped here at lunchtime after a most enjoyable walk up May Hill (also recommended). The new owners have the sort of welcoming enthusiasm that you rarely find these days. Mine host is so keen on the quality of his real ales and it shows, a pint to die for, perfectly served. His charming wife, the gourmet chef, can rustle... More
