As per the other reviews we booked a table for 10 at 7pm. We got our food at 9.15pm, we were starving and gutteed. I complined during our +2hr wait and was told all was ok. it was clearly not. I negotiated a 50% discount on our bill and offered to leave my name and address if they wabned to follow upbut was declined. Anyway ended up paying £135 for a £244 bill which we thought was fair. They have been greedy and over booked for the night, we are very dissappoineted.

We booked the Honey Tree for New Years Eve, upon arrival it was evident that it was very busy, people queuing and waiting everywhere. Our table when we arrived early wasn’t ready, but was quickly prepared at the first notice.
Our simple choice of food should have ensured a rapid response to our order, but after an hour, and third time lucky we ate our starter! (No prawn crackers either!!) The food was good, but the service was chaos, our main arrived over 2.5 hours after we arrived.

We always loved the Honey Tree, but won’t be going back in 2014.

We had the misfortune to book a table at this restaurant which proved to be an absolute nightmare. We waited some 2 hours before we got our starters then waited a further hour and a half for our main course in an atmosphere that can only be described as chaotic. The food when we got it was bland, luke warm and unbelievably small as well as very expensive. I wouldn't recommend anyone going here. Drinks very expensive. The bill when you get it has add ons that you haven't had and unless you check you will be overcharged. We will never visit this restaurant again and neither will our friends.

We booked a table for 8.30 on new years eve for a group of eight friends and were so looking forward to enjoying a relaxed meal. We arrived at 8.30 and were told our table wasn't ready so we had a drink. There wasn't enough seats for us all to sit and wait so the party was split up and some of us had to stand. It soon became apparent as more people arrived for their tables that there was a big problem. Staff were running around and every table was occupied with large groups. I recognised someone at one of the tables - they told me that they had booked for 7.30 (at this time it was 9oclock) and had only had a starter! By nine thirty we were still standing around waiting - people were walking out without eating and others were complaining about the slow service. We didn't want to leave as we knew that no other restaurant on new years eve would be able accommodate eight of us but we had no option! We left at twenty to ten after an evening completely ruined by poor management and overbooking. Come on Honey Tree you cannot get away with treating your customers in this manner and although your food is usually lovely I will not come back.
