We have visited the Yew Tree a number of times as we live nearby, and we will keep coming back. There's so much to like: a genuinely interesting wine list with some hidden gems; a regularly changing menu of delicious specials and a wonderfully warm and friendly welcome from Tim and his team. It is fair to say that the... More

The Yew Tree is simply the best pub around, great food, great local beer and great people. This is what every country pub should be like. Tim is a fantastic landlord with an amazing team. We are lucky to have it as our local.

Visited here today for lunch with a 5 year old and 4 other adults. Service was good, staff very friendly and helpful. All of our food was excellent, well cooked and well presented. Bit out of the way to find, but will definitely be back.

Rural pub famed for its high standard of cuisine, restaurant and public bar. Dogs welcome as are walkers. You have to book tables in advance to avoid disappointment

Parked her and did a walk . Staff quite happy about it. Good menu and the two meals we had were substantial and very nice. I would avoid the coffee as it comes from one of those push buttons machines and was, well average at best.

I was in a group of ten walkers from Winchester Ramblers and we called at the Yew Tree for lunch. We had pre-ordered. Most of us had only soup or sandwiches but the quality was excellent and the portions very generous. From what we could see the meals from the main menu looked good too. The staff were all friendly... More
