“Best night ever and the lunches are ok too.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013 via mobile

Visited on Valentines eve and many Lunchtimes, food is always super good and presented with style, service is lovely, friendly but not over the top.
My partner took me on Valentine's eve which is the 1st eve I have been to the Yew tree it was just perfect from the food, wine, service to the finishing touches on the tables. I really would recommend any lunchtime visit and if you want something special then this is the place in the evening. I can't wait to go in the evening again.

“Fantastic food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

We have been here several times now and you are always assured of top quality service and food. In particular the steaks and fish are superb and the staff are attentive to your every need. The specials board is different each time and offers locally sourced ingredients beautifully prepared by the resident chef and owner Simon. A small, intimate setting it is perfect for both a romantic dinner, a catch up with friends or a family outing. Superb!

“Great cafe and will be back for an evening meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

We stopped off one lunchtime for a quick snack. Carrot cake and cream scone ordered and at the table in great time. Both were wonderful and the cream and jam scone was superb on a big glass serving plate. Laid back atmosphere and friendly staff was a real plus. Its not cheap but was a good meal.

My only regret is not ordering a full meal, they looked gorgeous and smelled amazing!
