Great atmosphere, good service, good food. Initially surprised to find pizza on the menu, but it turned out to be absolutely spectacular!!! The biscuits that come with your coffee are also very special (liquid chocolate center). All in all - highly recommended.

We recently visited The Willow Tree for my wife's 40th birthday after a friend had recommended it. From the minute we walked in the door I could see why! The restaurant is stunning and the staff were welcoming and attentive, nothing was too much trouble. It has such a warm atmosphere and the menu is fabulous, not to mention the impressive wine list which the staff were very knowledgable on. Our food was outstanding and the dessert menu is one of the best I've seen! So well done Willow Tree! You lived up to your recommendation and we had a wonderful evening .

I went to this pub with my partner. The interior is great and very well decorated. There was not a huge choice on the menu. For started I had he fish cakes or should I say fish cake, it was on the small side but the taste was good. I had a fillet stake very expensive for the size but I was cooked to perfection. My partner had the Bourne buger very disappointing. The burger was not home made and tasted horrible. My partner couldnt finish it and when I tasted it, it was obvious it was probably a frozen one. This made the evening disappointing.

We stopped for lunch in the middle of a windy and wet Sunday cycle ride and had an excellent round of burgers and real ale to refortify. Beautiful little pub in a lovely location, will definitely return to try out the dinner menu.

I pop in for a drink after walking from a neighbouring village and discovering and ended up stay for lunch, a glass of wine and even a cocktail. The decor is very elegant, the service was good and the food was tasty. I have no room for complaints after visit number 1 and will surely return. I would definitely recommend it if you are looking to go out with a loved one or family for a special meal
