“Incredible meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

I visited the cherry tree with my parents with the view of having a traditional Sunday roast. After looking through trip advisor I had high hopes and I am very pleased to say that the meal, service, value and overall experience exceeded my already high expectations. My parents and I enjoyed every mouthful and when we asked for extra veg and gravy they were provided quickly with no hesitation. Every bit of veg was piping hot and the meat melted in your mouth- could not fault it with the exception of the fact that it had to end. I am a fussy eater but would recommend this pub to anyone and everyone. An experience not to be missed. We have booked again for 3 weeks time and I cannot wait.

“Friday Nights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

Went for a meal at the Cherry again last night, I had the Supreme of Chicken on Bubble and Squeak with a lovely creamy sauce, Jackie had the House Burger all superb value with a bottle of House White wonderfully presented and served, Richard and Dom were great hosts, its always good fun to watch Richard working the crowded bar with his sense of humor and cheerful banter.
An added bonus was James Deane the performing juke box, (my description not his) on guitar, a great blend of rock and soul.
Once again another great night at the Cherry Tree, many thanks. xxxxxxxx

“Brilliant pub with a warm welcome ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

We randomly stopped at the Cherry Tree on our way to Alice Holt and we're very glad we did! A lovely experience from the very first "hello" with a friendly smile to our delicious and well presented lunch. Our son, Archie, even got a free ice cream for being so helpful :o))

“'Big' birthday celebration”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

A fabulous time was had last Friday for my 40th birthday celebration. The owners had reserved the right hand side of the bar for my party of between 20-30 friends, and they couldn't do enough to ensure the evening was a big success. Great pub! Thank you!

“On The Edge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

We had a wonderful Sunday lunch and then went for a walk at Alice Holt forest, leaving our car at the Cherry Tree. Normally, I will do anything to avoid a pub Sunday roast, but this was in a league of its own. A table with a view of the cherry tree, amazing food, beautifully presented, and a very relaxing atmosphere.
