The food was amazing although the menu was a little limited. We loved our king scallops and pork loin and the puds were a lovely way to finish off our meal. The waitress we had was really knowledgeable on the food and was able to provide good recommendations. It isn't cheap but we don't mind paying slightly more for good... More

We chose to visit the Orange Tree as meeting a relative & friend who were staying nearby and we had heard it was award winning. We were seated quickly and offered drinks. There were a lot to chose from on the main menu and a specials card also. Strangely enough it made it difficult to chose as there were a... More

Dropped by for a late afternoon meal on Thursday 17th September... And the acclaimed " Award Winning Chef" was clearly off duty ! We were greeted with no sense of "high quality service "from anyone of the 3 undergraduates on duty.... The limited " early evening" Bar Menu was our only option but I had read how excellent this award... More

Met some friends for lunch at the Orange Tree and ate in the garden. An interesting lunchtime menu and well presented food with attentive service. Would we go there again? - definately.

We were really disappointed with the food. Staff very helpful and friendly which was the only positive point. The bar is not clean and could do with a lick of paint. The food was below others in the area without the hype. We had better meals at Briarfields and Caley Hall.

Easy booking, friendly welcome. Prompt delivery of drinķs with a refreshing Gavi. A relaxing time to peruse the menu . Beautifully presented food - succulent Hake with arancini and perfectly cooked kale, a deconstructed chicken pie and seafood spaghetti with a zing of chilli. Perfect portions for a late summer lunch . The desserts were scrumptiously presented but the piece... More

We stayed at numerous places whilst on a walking holiday of North Norfolk including the Pigs at Edgefield and the Hoste Arms at Burnham, however our stay at the Orange Tree was the most memorable for many reasons. Firstly the wonderful service and attention we received from Chris and the staff, nothing was too much and we were made to... More

My mum and I decided to stop here to eat on our way home because of the Dining Pub of the Year Award sign outside the pub. We were not disappointed. We both chose the chicken and wild mushroom pie, independently, having been lucky to find an empty table given it was early Saturday evening. The whole meal was delicious... More

Having eaten here many times in the past in the evenings, we were very disappointed with the sandwiches we ordered for lunch. My partner ordered pork and apple and had to play hunt the pork! I had goats cheese which arrived as two large slabs of cheese with relish. I had to eat it with a knife and fork because... More

We went here on a Saturday night, and had an excellent meal. We all remarked it was the best meal for a while and one of the best ever. It was definitely the best meal we have had in a pub. If I had to make a negative comment it would have to be that the service was a little... More
