We were fortunate to win a 2 course meal at a charity raffle, at this really lovely pub with restaurant, the staff were friendly and the food was excellent. We had apple crumble which was to die for. Looking forward to receiving the Christmas menu.

Lunch at the Yew Tree today as a treat for the family including the dog. Once again we had an excellent Sunday lunch in pleasant and hospitable surroundings. Would especially recommend the antipasta platter starter which was divine. Dog treated like royalty as always.
