Four friends enjoying lunch together at this superb pub. Everyone thought their meal was superb, I can only speak about mine, a most tasty cassoulet, made to a very original recipe, followed by the lightest bread and butter pudding I have ever had. All in all a lovely lunch

Have visited several times and again twice in a matter of days. Both recent visits offered a varied selection on the specials board and the a la carte a decent selection to suit all tastes and budgets. A welcoming selection of local ales, ciders and perrys whilst perusing the menu, followed by prompt service and delivery of food with an... More

Great food. Good selection on menu (not to sure about the previous review - I would recommend ignoring the below terrible comment). Great location. Views are amazing. Brilliant service and the wifi was welcoming. Visit this restaurant / pub and you will return. I am looking forward to trying their summer bbq on my next visit.

The food menu leaves a lot to be desired and you get the impression the chef just wanted to show off their Gordon Ramsey degree rather than attempting to make a menu that appeals to all situations. Not everyone wants a la carte all day. Change it up and like a tree, find your roots as this pub has long... More

Have been in this pub a few times including today after a walk on May Hill with my walking group and we enjoyed sitting outside with drinks. The service here has always been friendly. Maybe next time I am walking in the area I might try having a meal there rather than at the Glasshouse pub, another pub in the... More

We took our two children to this place for lunch before commencing a long walk through the Forrest. I had read all of Winifred Foley's books on her childhood and motherhood in the Forest and wanted to experience her writings. We lunched at the Yew Tree in Cliffords Mesne, (Winfred Foley lived in this village however the Landlady of the... More

We dined with friends here recently. We shared the tapas and the crackling with apple sauce for a starter, which was quite sufficient and all tasty. We had a variety of main courses and were all pleased with our choices. Likewise, sweets were generously portioned and well presented. Service was efficient and, by todays standards, wine was reasonably priced with... More

We shared the tapas which was just the right portion to enjoy the mains.I had a Sea bream off the specials which was grilled to perfection and my husband had a steak which was cooked just right.Service was good and we chose the wine from...

Whilst in the area we selected The Yew Tree from a pub guide. Despite sat nav,a map and directions in the guide we couldn't find it and had to resort to phoning the pub for directions! We enjoyed an excellent lunch from an extensive menu-well kept Bombardier and very friendly,helpful landlady. Well worth a visit.
