What on earth is the reviewer (who complained about the lack of choice of burgers) doing , by choosing this fine restaurant for his dining.?. I hope the staff can identify him if he ever returns and ban him. What a complete idiot. Burgers????

Went for an anniversary meal with my fiance, food was gorgeous, waiters very attentive and professional, I enjoyed it overall although the restaurant was very busy, noisy and too lively in the evening to my liking.

We've been here quite a few times over the years and its consistently great. Its a large, busy, family pub with a broad menu. The food is always excellent. We will be coming back, again.

What a gem of a place. Very friendly and accommodating. Good service. Good wine choice. The food was excellent. I had the black pudding scotch egg ( how do they do that ?) then the slow roasted beef and finished with the lemon cheesecake. All four of us loved the food and even liked the background music. First time I... More

We went on a Saturday afternoon for a pre-booked afternoon tea. The food was alright but we were disappointed that the sandwiches just came on tasteless white bread there had been no query as to what we'd like. Our coffee wasn't served in a cafetière, we had to order another cup. Only one plate each was brought for us to... More

The cherry tree is somewhere I've visited on and off since it opened and have always loved it. The food is exceptionally good and service is attentive without being overwhelming. You can go reasonably priced or splash out. I decided to finally review it as I've found myself there 3 times in the last 2 months. The more I eat... More
