My partner and I visited here on a Sunday afternoon. We didn't book so made sure we got to the pub early. We managed to get a table next to log fire. The pub itself has that authentic pub feel, full of character and charm. The staff were friendly and attentive, which always help in the experience. My partner and... More

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
