2nd visit here and was not disappointed. Food is great, value for money but my only complaint would be the food was not that hot, it is an issue for me that if my food arrives only just warm sending it back delays the meal for everyone or I end up eating alone because everyone else has finished!

Fish and chips were very good batter crisp. Opted for ice cream desert which was also good quality. Quieter than our last visit so noise level was just right. Service was excellent

Made one of our frequent visits to the Cherry Tree with friends,Food as always delicious, usually busy even at lunch times but Tuesday 2nd Oct evening was fairly quiet .Only negative was the fact they only had fillet steak on the menu,no sirloin or ribeye but the food here is consistently good ,okay starters and sweets a bit pricey but you never go away and say "Wasn't too good tonight was it " it always maintains a consistently high standard

I was disappointed at the menu. I had expected to be spoilt for choice but I found myself struggling to find an option that took my fancy. There were a lot of beef options that seemed similar. I chose smoked haddock risotto which was ok, but got a bit samey and I got bored half way through it. I had pate with brioche to start and found the brioche too sweet alongside the pate. It didn't really work for me. For dessert I had sticky toffee pudding which was nice but I had seen photos of elaborate desserts so expected something fancy, instead it was pretty standard and could have done with more ice cream. Overall I was underwhelmed and don't think I would go again.

Have been to the CT a few times now but my last visit was disappointing as the menu had been reduced, the only steak was fillet and had a section for sandwiches which is good for lunch but not at 8pm

Outstanding food and first class, efficient staff.
Don't see how this restaurant could possibly improve.
The only downside is that it is perhaps too noisy and"kid friendly". Solve that, and they would be nearing Michelin level.

Visited for a birthday meal. First impression was good however our starters were cold and my husbands didn’t even appear to be cooked properly, we sent it back but no one apologised we just got told it would be 10 minutes until another was ready. We refused the offer and was not charged, but felt really disappointed that we didn’t receive an apology.

My wife and I took my sister for Sunday lunch on her birthday. Had main courses and desserts. The mains dishes were very tasty and well presented. For dessert we chose the trio of desserts which was good value between three of us and allowed us to taste different ones. Only slight downside was the noise level but it was Sunday afternoon and there were several large parties dining.

The food is ok, 2 things let the meal down. We had goats cheese bonbons with walnuts, beetroot and some salad. The amount of walnut was equivalent to a quarter of on walnut broken in to 4 or 5 pieces, it let the dish down. The other disappointment was the size of the fish with fish & chip dish, I really thought I’d gotten a child’s portion it was tiny!
The staff are great and attentive & the waiter took my friendly banter well about the size the fish.

A major disappointment this time. As we arrived at 7pm on a Wednesday evening the Bar area was bustling with people attending a Funeral Wake. They were very noisy and there was obviously a confrontation taking place between the guests.
We were early for our meal as we wanted a Cocktail in the Bar first. We said this to our “greeter” who just said “ok”. However, when we got into the Bar to look for seats there was only one table and it was exceptionally noisy and we were next to a Mum feeding her young son!
We quickly asked to go to our table.
The noise levels throughout the evening were unacceptably loud mainly due to the acoustics caused by the wooden tables and floors. The noise just travels and it is difficult to have a normal conversation.
Thankfully, the food was excellent albeit a bit slow in arriving. I must give credit to the older guy who was our waiter/server. He was excellent and worked very hard.
Overall, the night was spoilt by the noise and the open hostility of the big party in the Bar as we arrived.

Cheers,
Alan
