We booked the Cherry Tree for five adults and were treated like kings from the moment we walked through the door. Service was both attentive and prompt without being intrusive. Each of our party ordered different meals and I have to say that the presentation and food quality of all of the meals was without exception fantastic, my steak was... More

Pudding for me was the hazelnut creme brûlée and for her an orange choc cocktail. Only fault.... No biscotti with my espresso. A small thing yes but I still had... More

After looking through the menu a lovely man came to take our orders and he was extremely helpful when we had questions concerning our dietary... More

We absolutely loved the food in the Cherry Tree. It's quite small so you need to book to try it. The pricing is probably on the high side but certainly worth it. The service was attentive but could have been a little friendlier/welcoming if i'm being critical. All in all a nice visit.

We booked an evening meal at this restaurant during mid week. I found this restaurant clean with a short menu and specials. The ales were locally made and the food was nice. It was a quite evening being mid week.

My partner booked a table at the Cherry Tree tonight as a treat before he abandons me for a few nights working away ;-) This was our first visit and certainly won't be the last. On arrival we were asked if we wanted to be seated at our table or in the lounge. As we were both very hungry we... More
