“Nice food good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

Back in April 2013 and many times before that when we lived in Braintree. We would visit the Orange Tree on numerous occassions. Taking family and friends for treats as the food was well valued and good to eat. Dave one of the fellas that run it was always very nice and polite and got to know him from all the visits we paid. If you want reasonably priced nice food and friendly staff, this the place to eat.

“The Best Welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

I love popping into this pub when I visit Braintree.
The staff go out of their way to make me feel welcome. Sharer starters, Sizzling steak, Comforting desserts.
If any food, should not be to your taste or you have a particular preference or taste, staff & chef are kean to put any such request into place or made 'right' as soon as possible.
Occaisionally there are bands / groups evenings around the weekends also.
This place comes most highly recommended from me.
Sports like darts, football or rugby can be enjoyed on their various screens dotted around.
Why dont you go and experience this wonderful welcome for yourselves?
Prices are pretty reasonable too.

“Cant fault it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

The waiting staff are very attentive. They wait until you are seated and have read the menu before they approach. Nothing seems to be any trouble and they engage in conversation very easily. The restaurant is very clean and the food, which is reasonably priced, cannot be faulted.
