Don't drive past

Every time I tell someone how great the Yew Tree is they say they've never thought to go there, it's somewhere you simply drive past in and out of Reigate. It's definitely worth visiting. From the outside it is quite unassuming. The inside is very tastefully decorated, dark wooden panelling on... read more

The service was good but the food was just awful. The squid was the most slippery pile of food I have ever tasted. It was a struggle to eat it. The lamb was nice but the sauce completely lacked any seasoning. A real shame! It wasn't cheap either. Won't be rushing back.

Enjoyed a fantastic and an excellent lunch on Christmas day. The owners and staff pulled out all the stops to make it a very memorable occasion, with the only drawback being the taxi arriving to take us home. Food was done to a very high standard and with my wife and I being veggies we were extremely well catered for.... More

Visited here just before Christmas for a meal with a group of nine friends. In regards to the food, two of the dishes were exceptional (the veggie option, along with the chicken), but the others were average. I can't comment on desserts because, by this time, one member of staff had made us feel so uncomfortable that we were happy... More

In a convenient spot coming off the M25 is really the only plus point. The menu is tired and misleading, with many old fashioned dishes. Due to the length of time to get our food it would seem it is not homemade but maybe heated up. The sausages were watery and tasteless and the salad too I am afraid. With... More

Having frequented The Yew Tree on several occasions, the food and service has yet to disappoint! It is fast becoming a favourite...superior to many of the restaurants in Reigate. The food is amazing, and has slight changes on a regular basis... fish of the day and the roast chicken special. The tables are spaced well, and have a few alcoves... More

We had a chicken burger and chips, and a steak pie with mash. Both were really lovely. The staff were friendly, approachable and helpful. The best meal we have had for ages :)

We visit plenty of pubs locally, this one just has a feel of a landlord/lady on the way out. There is a lack of warmth and comfort. The food is ok, but from the stat to finish the other pub eateries locally completely blow them out of the water. Sorry but you really need to do better.

Just had a meal at the yew tree, rather disappointing and not up to usual standard. My daughter had the chilli which was not very spicy, but had a taste of bbc sauce and my husband & I had , a burger with chips. The chips had a distinct "fishy" taste. The order before ours to come out was fish.... More

Attentive staff, great choice of very flavoursome food. White chocolate chip cheesecake is a must. Thank you Helen & Warren will definitely be back again.
