Such a local gem! The food is really fresh and there is an excellent choice on the menu - how they balance those two I don’t know but it works! I have allergies and those were well catered for. My second visit in the same month and I shall be returning. Always nicely busy and yet the wait for food is absolutely bang on. My friend was particularly impressed by her espresso last night. Staff are attentive in just the right measure and the decor is pretty and inviting. Tables are not too close together and although there was a buzz of conversation we could easily hear ourselves speak and felt private even in a full room.

This was our first time here, been wanting to come for ages. Was not disappointed. Food was outstanding, my husband’s steak was perfect. The cocktails were so good, hard to get perfect cocktails but here they made them perfect. Definitely be returning here. Staff were lovely also. Decor and settings were so nice.

As ever the place and service were v good. We are getting increasingly disappointed with the menu which, for us , is becoming too ‘varied!’ and we are finding fewer simple choices; a range of smaller platters would also be welcome. We may reluctantly be looking elsewhere

We have not visited The Cherry Tree since before it’s impressive transformation. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The service we received was excellent and the varied menu and the quality of the food and its presentation was very good. We will certainly return.

Excellent food but very loud in the main room. We couldn’t hear ourselves speak. Small criticism though. Again, the food was unbelievably tasty.

We ate here only 3 weeks ago and it was fine, but what a change. Starters were fine, then my wife was served uncooked chicken. When the new meal was presented, instead of crispy skin, it was wet and wobbly and the chicken looked rather worn out. I wanted to send it back, but my wife ate the gnocchi and left the rest.

It was my birthday and a truly awful experience and a total waste of money. From the moment you walk in and encounter a non smiling receptionist to the meal a disaster. Nice leaving though.

Excellent once again. The food was delicious. Had a frozen strawberry daiquiri and that was delicious too. Service was excellent. The only negative thing I can say it was a little too noisy (think it was due to where we were sat) but it was still fabulous.

A lovely experience with my mother. We sat in the curved bay overlooking the floral wall and it was perfect and very relaxing. The food was delicious as usual, I had the smoked salmon and fish pie and mum had the pate and cheese and onion pie. Both choices were excellent.
Great place, looking forward to returning on Boxing day.
