14 of us came to this restaurant for a Christmas get together, the food was served hot and on time and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. We were noisy and enthusiastic and our festive cheer was tolerated very well. I would definately return

Visited one lunchtime a few weeks back. The decor was charming, channeling the popular shabby chic/up cycling movement. The restaurant was almost full - it's only a small place but the staff looked rushed off their feet. This may be perhaps because each thing we ordered (drinks, meal etc) were served up individually rather than brought together. For example, my... More

4 members of staff behind the counter, 6 customers. I tried to get the attention of a member of staff a couple of times, and was ignored. Apparently it was the chef ' and not his place to serve tables' , I had been to this place before and found that the service was a little surely. However the food... More

My wife and I called in for some lunch whilst Christmas shopping, although full a table for two was no problem, a great menu, fresh and up to date. I love this place, we have never been disappointed, lunch, early tea, evening meal it always delivers. I must say, what I originally ordered was sold out but I was offered... More

This place is absolutely amazing and never disappoints. The menu is fantastic and offers something for every occasion and the wine list is arguably the best in the area (in my humble opinion!). The staff are so friendly and obliging. I love the fact that you can see the chefs working their magic with their awesome culinary skills due to... More

I recently visited Arboreal with friends. I had the vegetarian Squash which I thought was a bit pricey for a vegetarian meal at £13. It came with a side salad but it was basically just roasted squash with a cheese and onion sauce on top. It was ok but not particularly exciting and certainly not worth £13. The restaurant is...

We only had cake and coffee there, which was okay. Maybe it's more a place for young people, though we felt comfortable enough and the service was good and friendly.

We chose Arboreal as the venue for our pre-wedding drinks and canapés, then later in the evening our reception dinner. The owners went out of their way to create the most perfect venue, with the most fantastic food and atmosphere. All of our guests, without exception loved every mouthful of the excellent food. The cake was superb, the band wonderful.... More

We first visited Arboreal in September 2013 when we were disappointed with our lunch & my review reflected our experience. We were pleasantly surprised today & had a very good glass of Pinot Grigio , we both ordered a Chicken Caesar salad, one of the best we've ever had, with a portion of french fries. As neither of us like... More
