We are regular customers of this restaurant and the family have been going for a long time. You will not be disappointed if you choose to have a meal here. For only a slightly higher price, you get a much better meal than any other restaurant in the village.

The wine menu is fantastic, the food is cooked to perfection with great flavours and it is all presented beautifully.

The owners and the service staff are also very friendly. I honestly don't have a bad word to say about the place!

Thank Learos

First time visit with my wife.
Good service and well presented and prepared food for a good price.
The scallops, rib-eye and toffee pudding which I had were all prepared to perfection.
Will definitely return!

Service was attentive and friendly and the food was delicious - I had duck which was cooked perfectly, but I am told the real star of the show was Sticky Toffee Pudding! The restaurant is quite small, tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. We will be returning in the next two weeks with friends, so clearly very happy with our first experience of The Fig Tree.

Lunched there again this weekend and find it hard to fault as always. The food is freshly prepared and beautifully presented. The flavours are wonderful and it's clear the produce is both fresh and of a high quality. We have eaten here many times and have yet to find a fault and it's a shame there are not more small independent restaurants like this. £16.50 or £18.50 for a 2 or 3 course lunch for food of this quality is excellent value. The set menu may be limited but there are plenty of choices from the a la carte menu as well and it won't blow your budget.

Monika is a wonderful host and David is a first class chef. Give it a try - you won't be disappointed.
