Having lived locally since the Willow Tree opened it has always been a wonderful venue and somewhere where we can escape to for some sublime food! My wife loves the cocktail menu, and the terrace in the summer is fantastic! Having attended Willow fest their own little festival last year for the 1st time I was amazed at the efforts... More

Have been here on several occasions over the past few years. A quirky little place that caters for all needs, whether birthdays, anniversaries, weddings or just a catch up with friends and family!! The food is always brilliant, changing seasonally - this coupled with the continuously wonderful, relaxed service from the FOH team and the changing cocktails and drinks always... More

We visited the Willow Tree on the basis of the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor which persuaded us that this would be the perfect place to take our daughter for a nice relaxing lunch. I'm guessing that maybe we went on an "off" day but frankly the experience was so bad we were left shell shocked. Yes it's a quirky... More

The huge chairs by the open fire were referred to by the staff as 'the throne' as they offered them to us. The rest of the restaurant décor is also ‘shabby-chic’ with plenty of mirrors including one on wheels that is used to bring the menu to the table. Good carefully cooked fresh food a level above pub food. Friendly... More

Fancied a quiet supper on a Friday night, but not in the city, we chose this and were delighted. The quirky décor, none franchise atmosphere was perfect, the drinks menu is wide and varied, the food excellent, freshly cooked and the staff made the experience, great place, you can park, there's no rush and the desserts worth saving some room...

Staff always lovely, food always amazing and restaurant is beautiful. Well worth a trip out of Cambridge and have been here several times for special occasions. One of my favorite restaurants to go to.

I'm not sure how this place can get anything but 5 stars! Came here for my birthday meal with a few friends and it was amazing. I had a rhubarb and apple tie cocktail, and it was so yummy! Tasted exactly like apple pie! For main I had the potato gnocchi with vegetable ratatouille - it was the most tasty... More

I thoroughly enjoyed lunch yesterday at The Willow Tree. Staff were very friendly, food was amazing, loved the decor. All together a perfect way to spend a couple of hours. Great to see so many gluten free options and lovely impromptu birthday candle in dessert was a nice touch. Thankyou I will return - possibly even tonight!!!

Big lover of their Sister restaurant No 77! So thought we would give it a go! To start with the layout and decor is amazing! Nice big tables and spread out so your not sat getting splash whilst your waiting for your meal to come! Specials are wheeled around on a giant Mirror (different) the food was very tasty and...
