After I had been to the bar and ordered and paid for our food my daughter and I chatted over our drinks. The old man started getting a bit loud and... More

Sheil1967 we are sorry that you had a bad experience in the Orange tree. Unfortunately this 'gentleman' has been causing a lot of trouble in local businesses recently and the police are looking into it. If you are willing to try us again next time you are here to visit your daughter, we're sure you'll have a much more enjoyable... More

Perfect stop off after a busy day shopping. Quick, easy and delicious. Wide menu with good options for vegetarians and meat eaters too. Part of a small chain in the region and never had a bad experience. Recommend

Been here a multitude of times, atmosphere for drinks has always been great, everything I have ever eaten there has been spot on ( the Chicago steakhouse is the best!) it's a struggle to find a fault

This establishment usually has doormen on when we go to town so its not the sort of place we'd normally go to. However this particular day we were in town shopping and decided to have lunch in the Orange Tree. the food , drinks and service were fine and at reasonable prices so if its strait forward pub grub you're...

The food was okay, and they have lots of gluten free options which is good for me. Also, the cocktails are made from scratch and are very good. However, they have lots 1 star due to service, I was given a TINY pot of mayo to go with my dinner, and it quickly ran out, but for the whole of... More

really nice meal, great they do specials which they change up regularly. Although cocktails are fab, it is very hit and miss as to which bar staff serves you.

As we was casually chatting and laughing, he lent over... More

I visited the Orange Tree as a quick meal before i left and i found myself in such a nice atmosphere, with great staff, food was hot and quick and tastes divine. The outside garden was beautiful and i would recommend visiting when in Loughborough.

I have now been to the Orange Tree twice for drinks and once for food...First of all a hamburger is not a meatloaf sandwich, and that should be specified, as to set the tone and expectation. The presentation is nice enough, but considering that the majority of clientele are students, the prices are on the higher side for the portion... More
