We booked a belated valentines meal at The Orange Tree as the place had been recommended to us. We cannot recommend The Orange Tree highly enough. The gentleman who took the booking was so nice, friendly and reassuring when I had a particular request.
Upon arrival, we found the ambience lovely, warn and welcoming and the service attentive without being intrusive. The wine list is very comprehensive with something for everyone.
Now for the best bit, the food! The starters we ordered were delicious - cheesy garlic mushrooms and a prawn cocktail. For the main course, although the specials were tempting, we opted for steak. We are always a bit nervous about ordering steak when we eat out because (blowing my own trumpet) I cook a mean steak at home that can rarely be topped. However, our streaks at The Orange Tree blew mine out of the water! Beautiful meat which was cooked to perfection. Everything was top notch, including the accompaniments (chips, mushroom, tomatoes and rocket) and the side dishes we ordered (cauliflower cheese and onion rings). Having been piggies (me especially!) with the starters and mains, we didn't have room for pudding so can't offer an opinion on that course but if everything else was to go by I'm sure they would've been exquisite.
We will definitely be returning!
For info, our bill came to just under £68 for 2 starters, 2 mains, 2 sides and a bottle of wine and in our opinion worth every penny.
