Very impressed with this restaurant

I was looking for a nice restaurant to a celebrate an anniversary and The Mulberry Tree didn't disappoint. Considering the high quality and standard of food and service provided, the cost is extremely reasonable and I will be visiting again.

Couldn't get in to my first choice so used TripAdvisor to find something new and up came the Mulberry Tree. You need a decent sat nav to find this restaurant but it is worth it. From the outside you could be forgiven for thinking this is a "pop up" as it looks like a private residence..but don't be worried. You... More

My second visit and it didn't disappoint. The service is excellent and every course was delicious, served piping hot and beautifully presented. If you have not been you need to it's a must.

Great hosts we we had booked and were directed to our table promptly. We felt the menue was a bit sparse but we were able to find something we could both appreciate. Our courses arrived promptly and they were hot and flavoursome. All the staff appeared to be helpful and knowledgeble. We had a great time and would go again.

Having last reviewed this restaurant in 2013 we organised a private lunch club of 8 persons to visit here for the first time as a group. The food was excellent - we all chose from the fixed price menu and were very pleased with the presentation of each and every course. The service was adequate, our coats were taken from... More

I am obviously pleased that overall you thoroughly enjoyed your visit with us yesterday, Wednesday 25 March. We do not add service to all bills, only parties of over 8 people and all monies left, whether cash or credit card, do go direct to the staff. I would like to point out that we did not refuse to let you... More

Food excellent - fresh, hot, well presented. Service average - directed to table very close to others when two other tables in room vacant and not reserved (this is a Tuesday lunchtime!). Service charge automatically included - no change brought (albeit small). Ale cloudy. Coats not brought at end...helped ourselves. Got sense they're resting on laurels/reputation and not interested in... More

I am obviously delighted you enjoyed your food on your recent visit to us, but clearly concerned with the comments regarding the service and have taken these on board. I would like to point out that all of our tables are quite spacious and we generally use our Garden Room for a lunch time service, where the tables are all... More

We enjoyed a beautifully cooked and presented three course Sunday Lunch over the course of 90 minutes. Even the grand daughter did... More
