I love The Orange Tree - good range of cocktails and spirits, nice beer and cider, great food and setting. BUT the staff often really let this place down by seeming above those of us who they aren’t friends with. On the visit we intended...More

Hey Paul Thank you so much for your lovely review. Sorry for the slight delay at the bar. We were all still recovering from a very busy evening the night before. We hope to see you again! Many thanks, Patrick

The Orange Tree has a really good cocktail selection and often some good promotional offers such as happy hours. The food is really good too, never had a bad experience yet! Should be considered more for food and not just as a bar

Great selection of drinks (didn’t try the food) and nice beer garden. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Toilets could do with a bit of a makeover as they looked past their best. Better beer and cider selection would be welcomed.More

Description
A town centre favourite with a cosy atmosphere, The Orange Tree is laid back and friendly with an unpretentious feel. This large but intimate bar is full of big comfy sofas and quirky artwork on the walls: The Orange Tree loves to support local creative talent across the arts and music and regularly hosts live music nights showcasing the best new music in the Midlands. With arguably the best beer garden in the town there is no better place to enjoy the extensive offering of great fresh British food, cocktails and a wide range of premium beers, wines and spirits.
