Our food was delicious and i can really recommend the chicken ceasar salad which was... read more

The staff are usually very polite and attentive but when I went last week I was left waiting for 5 minutes while another customer was being dealt with at the till because there was a problem, while three or four other staff were doing nothing but chatting to each other. I asked if I could be served at the second... More

Oh, I love this shop and this lovely cafe/restaurant. The waitress, Barbara, was very helpful and an all round lovely lady, showing us to our table and sorting us out with refills for tea and coffee. Friendly and very, very pleasant. We had afternoon tea for two which was glorious! I would recommend this to anyone who loves a really... More

We have been to the Wickentree on several occasions and we are always satisfied with the service, quality of the food and the place itself. It is on the more expensive side, but you are paying for the extra care and attention given to the presentation of the food, the quality of the furnishings and just the overall standards. My...

Today we visited The Wickentree for a mid-morning snack. We were greeted by a polite and friendly waiter who was quite willing to move tables so that we could have wheelchair access and all sit together. The décor is modern yet traditional at the same time. It looked like a lot of money had been spent on lighting and televisions... More

12 months have gone by since we had a very disappointing meal at the Wickentree. We decided to give it another chance, but.... oh dear.....nothing has changed. We were greeted and seated nicely. I ordered the minute steak on toasted chiabatta with onion rings and 'black peppered mayo dressing' Onion rings, very good. Minute steak more like a warmed up... More
