The food is excellent, service attentive and discreet. I loved the immaculate table cloths and the owner was really friendly. The fixed price menu offers locally sourced delights. My cheese soufflé was perfect, as was the venison and dessert. A little tricky to find but the owner talked us in! Our only complaint was the chilled red wine but as the restaurant had been closed for a few weeks when the owners were away, I am assuming this was why this small oversight had occurred. Very well worth a visit and we will be back for more.

We have been to the Willow Tree twice now and have enjoyed the experience both times. The staff are great and efficient under the direction of Rita, one of the owners. The food is great and the time between courses is just right, not too slow or too fast very relaxed. When we went for Christmas Day lunch we asked to change what was ordered and nothing was too much trouble. We look forward to many many more visits.

Many thanks to Rita and all staff for an exceptional meal and outstanding service at the Willow Tree for Christmas Day lunch. We were greeted warmly on arrival, the tables were beautifully set - and the food was sublime. The atmosphere was very festive, yet relaxed - all of which helped to ensure a most memorable experience.
This was our second Christmas Day lunch at The Willow Tree. We are already looking forward to our third visit in December!

Had a wonderful meal at New Year's Eve meal with friends. all aspects were excellent. With attentive but not overbearing staff. Very professional proprietor who was most helpful in accommodating my wife with a wheat free meal. Not sure what the every day meals are like but we had an 8 courses which were all well presented and tasted divine. We will be sure to visit again

For the first time in many years my husband and I found we were on our own this Christmas and so we decided to find a fine restaurant for our Christmas Day Lunch. We were strangers to the area and so went to Trip Advisor for some ideas.

We were not disappointed with the Willow Tree.

We were greeted warmly on arrival and the service throughout was brilliant, as was the ambience and, most importantly, the food and wine. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and will certainly go back there next time we are in that area.
