“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We had two meals at the Royal Yew Tree. We really enjoyed the food. First night was less busy we both ate different fish dishes which were great. We noticed that on wednesdays they do an offer on three courses, so returned for this. We felt that we were not really welcome on the second visit as many locals took advantage of the offer. That said the meal was still good.

“Great Pub Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Very friendly staff, excellent service, good value for the quality of food served.
All food was hot and very tasty.
Spent four evenings in pub out of a weeks holiday.
Only slight downside was the menu needs rotating a little more often.

“Birthday Bash”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

A family birthday celebration took us to the Royal Yew - we have been numerous times and have never had a bad meal there. It has a warm friendly atmosphere and the staff are very nice.

“The best burger I've ever had!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013


Me & my girlfriend had a meal at this lovely pub over the weekend. I really enjoy stacked burgers & this one was the best I've ever had - the beef was very good quality. My girlfriend also enjoyed a dish called Boston Beef.

The service was great & the staff were very friendly.
