Its really more of a fine dining restaurant in a lovely old traditional country pub. We were well looked after the whole evening and the food was very very good.

We organised our team Christmas lunch here and were all very impressed! The staff are so welcoming and really go far out of their way to ensure you have a great time. The food was really tasty and was all fresh and hot - we had no issues whatsoever (even with 13 of us!) and we weren't kept waiting between... More

We are occasional visitors to The Orange Tree and this latest meal was lovely - we choose here if we want something just a bit more special than regular pub grub. We arrived with our 7 year old and 4 adults on a Satuday lunchtime - the restaurant was quiet which we quite liked as we had great opportunity to... More

Very impressed, we had a fabulous time. We were a table of nine, and were warmly greeted when we arrived. The service was excellent and as we had pre-ordered, the staff had our names which they used throughout the evening. This made the service more personal. The food was delicious, well presented and we didn't feel at all rushed. The... More

Staff warmly welcomed us, having decorated our seating area in the restaurant making this celebration even more special. We were a large family party, the service was excellent and everyone's wishes happily accommodated by the staff. The food was delicious and well presented, there was no pressure on time between courses so the whole evening was thoroughly enjoyable.

I ate here last evening with two friends and I was very impressed. The interior was lovely; bright and airy but cosy at the same time and the Christmas decorations were tasteful. The tables were a good distance apart, comfortable chairs too. We immediately felt relaxed. The staff were very attentive and the food delicious and well-presented. I especially liked... More

I have visited The Orange Tree once before, a while back and was not that impressed. My gripe was that the food did not seem that special and high tables and chairs in the corner made it feel like we were getting bar snacks, not having a special meal. How things change. Gave The Orange Tree another chance and boy... More

Visited The Orange Tree at the weekend for my boyfriends grandmas 85th Birthday. There were 13 of us altogether. The owners were very friendly, accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. I started with olives and bread and tried my boyfriends starter which was chicken with chorizo and corn - it was delicious and I ended up stealing half of... More

The excellent reviews of The Orange Tree are well deserved indeed - without doubt one of the best 'pubs' for food I have ever been in. It might sound odd but it was the negative reviews that grabbed my attention & brought me here! I loved the fact that the owners responded to gripes from whining parents with a sharp... More
