The service was really good but not too intrusive and specific requests for food well done (by one of our group) were met to her satisfaction. Would have liked more choice if sweets but Would recommend the restaurant and will go back.

First time visit, nice place, good service, was just a bit too busy with being at the side of a large party with a loud over active child, but overall it was all good and we are planning another visit one evening very soon.

Never had a bad meal here. Would like to see a green salad as a side dish ( the one currently is just rocket, please add an alternative lettuce for those of us who do not like rocket).
Especially like the beginners cocktails and desert cocktails on the menu. They are fab.

Arrived on time. Waitresses seemed busy on phone unable to give us their attention at first. Asked if we would like to take a drink and wait in bar area and they would bring menus over. We did this but after 10 mins the menus didn't arrive. We went back to reception area - waiter took us to our table but still no menus. Waited a further 15 mins but still no menus even though there were service staff around clearing tables - we felt invisible. Left the place after 25 mins - don't even think they noticed us leaving. Apalling service.

We are regular diners at the Cherry Tree and previously we have always been delighted.
BUT
on this occasion we were not made welcome, the service was slow and my ribeye was over cooked. There was no usual friendly banter from the wait staff and the Maitre D’ was quite hostile and rude. We felt a tension in the air and perhaps there was a staff shortage. We got our table to time and our initial drinks and the order was taken fairly quickly albeit abruptly. It seemed as if it was a bore and a chore to serve us. However, when I asked for a glass of red wine for my main course the response was you better have it now! Even though I was still enjoying my G&T.
We then had quite a wait for our food. Generally the food was ok although my medium ribeye was more well done. No additional sauces were offered and when I asked about accompaniments I was told abruptly and in a condescending manner, have what you want the steak comes solo. No suggestions were made as he seemed anxious to get to the next table. We felt that we were just a nuisance and not a valued customer.
When we left after paying the bill and leaving a generous tip there was no one at the desk as you leave so there was no “thank you for dining with us” which used to be the norm.
It is hard to build a reputation but it is easy to lose it. Just be careful Cherry Tree and please maintain your customer service standards.
Our thought she leaving was “Let’s try somewhere else next time”.

I attend the restaurant on Saturday evening. I haven't eaten here previously whilst the food was lovely it was extremely noisy. Too noisy to hear and it was a date so not ideal to chat.
the acoustics needs some investment then it would be my first choice in the area.

I came here for the first time after a recommendation from a friend and wasn't disappointed.
The food was delicious and the staff were friendly.
There is a set menu which is cheaper if you need to watch your budget as the a la carte menu can be a little pricey.
Would definitely book again.

I usually love everything at the Cherry Tree, and have recommended it to many friends in the past. As a parent of 2 young children, it is somewhere we like to go on our own as a couple for a date/treat if we ever get chance to.
On saturday our food just wasn't up to the usual standard, I had the Gammon chop, which was nice, but the chips where bland and undercooked, and the cabbage/spinach was soggy and tasteless.
My partner had fillet steak, which at £22 should have been perfect, but he has had similar steak at flaming grill chain restaurants. I didn't like to complain at the time, as its embarrassing in a busy/on the expensive side restaurant.. but we left disappointed and don't feel we would return

We decided to dine at The Cherry Tree as we had visitors down from Scotland. It is a lovely restaurant in a lovely out of town setting, great for all occasions. The ambiance of the place is lovely in a lovely setting so you can either have a lovely meal or use the bar facilities and sit outside on a sunny day. The food was excellent, medium priced and perfect for a special occasion. However the only thing that let the place down slightly the service could have been slightly better, as their was four of us we ordered four starters only three arrived and the chef had missed one off, the waiting staff could have been a little more aware as to what had happened and maybe dealt with the situation, but we had to get up and locate a member of staff to ask the question. The waiting staff were young and maybe due to lack of experience didn't pick up on this. However mistakes happen and overall would not put me off going back.

Enjoyed our first visit to Cherry Tree for Sunday Lunch. We booked a table for 4.15pm and arrived around 4.10pm. We were informed that the table wasnt quite ready and would we like a drink at the bar. As it turned out we subsequently found out that our table was still in use and previous clients were just being served desserts at 4.15pm. To be fair, the restaurant did keep us informed but it was 4.40pm before we were seated.
These things happen so this is not a rant and we enjoyed the food and will be back.
Just a shame about the late table but i guess sometimes you rely on diners vacating promptly

A disappointing Easter Sunday. Both the pork a la Carte and beef (specials menu) was over cooked and lacked any real wow factor.

Upon telling the waitress that the meat was over cooked she did nothing and we took the meat home for the dogs. This was after asking for a sharper knife as the meat was tough.

A huge disappointment and for £111.00 too! Also, don’t put crackling on the menu when it’s a glorified pork scratching!! It was disgusting!
