A little expensive, but a lovely family run pub with a great atmosphere and really good food, would visit again.

I had a funny feeling we would like this restaurant after reading the trip advisor reviews, particularly the responses from the owner to certain occasional bad reviews. So, how was our experience? It was great and we have rebooked for a party of 6 at Christmas, so that establishes the fact we are new fans!! The selection of food choices... More

I had a lovely birthday lunch here. You can't fault the quality of the food. If I had to criticise one thing then it would be the size of the Yorkshire puddings. I dont understand why restaurants have to make them so large that they cover most of your plate. Please just make them a normal size and give two... More

Went here on a Saturday night in a group of 8 (4 couples) as a catch up friends night out. It was, overall, on of the best meals I have had in a very long time. Started with a duck spring roll type dish which was delectable, followed by the best fish dish I have had in donkey's years (chilli... More

Our first trip to the Orange Tree having read the rave reviews on TripAdvisor. When I rang to book a table I have to say I wasn't overly impressed by the unfriendly tone of voice at the other end of the phone. However, on arriving the staff couldn't be nicer. The service was a little slow, having thought we had... More

Hi Debbie and thank you for your review. It seems all was well apart from the rather excitable group which was indeed a birthday party. 18 months ago we took a decision after similar feedback to make evenings at the Orange Tree adult only and on this ocassion, as we knew the family - who are lovely - very well...

I do not share the 'rave' reviews about this pub I'm afraid. Visited Friday lunch time with a few work colleagues. The female proprieter came accross as unfriendly and not very welcoming, not once did she crack a smile more of a frown throughout our visit! Also feel that £7 for a very average sandwich was very over priced. We... More

Always argued of a warm welcome by Tom and the team the food is top-notch, the ambience perfect and the service excellent! Watch for the specials board and make sure you book as the Orange Tree fills earlier and earlier - and that must tell you a lot!

This was our first experience at The Orange Tree after hearing some really great comments about the food, and atmosphere. The staff were charming, very welcoming and helpful. The service was first class and our meal was perfect. A good selection of wine is available too! Gone on treat yourselves - you won't be disappointed!

Visited for the first time this evening with a friend after hearing great reviews from work colleagues. Food and service did not disappoint. Great menu with extensive "specials" board. I don't eat potatoes and was offered various alternatives. Very helpful unlike other restaurants. Cod cheeks starter, calves liver main and cherry crumble desert. All superb, a gastro delight.
