This is a tough one to review, on the one hand some very good parts but also some not so good. Went for a celebration as it looked so nice and menu was good. Was quiet initially and service was friendly and pleasant. Beautiful dining area, lovely garden with swings and wigwam! Perfect on a summers evening. Food was overall... More

I met family here for dinner on Sunday. It was a reunion and some of us had travelled a long way. The place itself is beautiful and very welcoming with a great patio area for al fresco dining. A good selection of foreign beers and craft ales on tap and a good wine selection. The food however was a let... More

We visited for the first time, this is such a gorgeous pub. It's very cute. The food is outstanding. We had duck breast, which was cooked perfectly. We can't wait to come back. The veranda out the back was gorgeous on a summer evening. Lovely lovely lovely!

We went to this recommended restaurant to celebrate my birthday. We waited 20 minutes before we got a menu and for someone to take our order for drinks. Despite having booked, they had no table reserved and so we were given a table by the toilet entrance. We could not order a second round of drinks because no one came... More

Before leaving we shared our disappointing experience with the lady who collected payment for our meals. She was very pleasant and apologised profusely. The faults are numerous and no effort was made by the staff to make our visit enjoyable. I truly believe our criticisms of the restaurant will be acted upon and things will hopefully improve in the future.... More

What a great place. Great food, up to the minute food, style, service and atmosphere. We wanted to get out of the corporate world for the evening and thanks to my search found The Willow Tree. Cannot find fault, gorgeous food and great service

Great food though service is slow. Lovely location though somewhat out of the way. Loved the bill arriving disguised in a book.

I have visited The Willow Tree previously while in the Cambridge area and thoroughly enjoyed it but on this occasion the experience was decidedly average. Resource seemed to be stretched to the limit due to an event in its back field and this manifested itself in a shortage of the very basics which was a disappointment given The Willow Trees... More

Our son had been before and raved about this place, so we had to try it. It was my wife's birthday, so that seemed a good reason to see for ourselves. Well, it was pretty much perfect. Four clean plates after every course and the wine wasn't bad either. The lovely, quirky, shabby chic interior really works well. I don't... More
