What a fantastic time we had celebrating my youngest son's birthday with family on Sunday evening. The waitress was superb and friendly! My son's choice of meal (Venison) was sold out. The waitress immediately came to let him know so he could choose something else. ll of our dishes were really tasty. My youngest had the Sea Bass with Crab mash- very flavourful. My meal was chicken, again really good and tasty. Another guest had the fish and chips- very large portion and our fourth family member had the gammon! Again a huge portion, even he didn't manage to finish and he has a massive appetite! All cooked to perfection.
The decor is so gorgeous! The pink Cherry Blossoms are really well done- makes you feel like you are outside! We sat in the entrance to where the large doors are looking out onto the conservatory part overlooking the beer garden. So warm and welcoming! What a lovely way to spend a winter Sunday evening. I really enjoyed it!

Eaten here plenty of times but unfortunately the quality of the food has considerably disintegrated and was very poor.
Won't be visiting again unfortunately.

Was disappointed 3 of us chose special menus but that had ran out, then they chose a second choice that had also ran out, I had the cod with muscles yet there was no muscles in the dish and it was just warm. We have been to the cherry tree several times took friends at Xmas and that was a disaster waited an hour and half for our table but the food was delicious on that occasion

I attended with four of my friends, this was my first visit and I had the most gorgeous of evenings. From being greeted at reception, to being looked after with drinks from the waiter/waitresses, then to being taken to our table was exceptional.
The restaurant is so beautiful, classy and comfortable. The menu was amazing and the food was delicious. Thank you to the amazing staff at the Cherry Tree for making our evening special, look forward to returning soon.

Waited 20 minutes to get a drink on arrival, then ordering drinks during the meal was always difficult. Understand they are busy.

Disappointed. Been before but this time wasn’t impressed. The menu didn’t float my boat. The prices were expensive. £19 for two glasses of wine Is a jolke. Couldn’t cut the pastry on my dessert so they knocked that off the price

An amazing place to eat, food of the highest quality and the staff attentive but not over the top.
A place that makes a statement. Without a doubt will return.

Great value a la carte menu on the day of our visit midweek, with 20% off, otherwise would have felt it was pricey for what we had.
Food as always was good . My only criticism was the rice with my curry was overcooked and stuck together,. but the curry was delicious and full of flavour. The starter of a filo parcel with a feta cheese filling was great and the pastry really crispy.
Lovely ambience and atmosphere as always, staff attentive and friendly from greeting to exiting.

Food was good and table service was good but prior to meal waiting for drink service and had to chase up second drink, unable to buy at the bar so reliant on waiter service which was non existant in the bar area.
The building is now full of hard surfaces particularly in the bar area so you could not hear yourself speak. Not the place for a quiet meal, shame really because food quality was good

A friend and I went to Cherry Tree for a birthday meal treat. The food and service were wonderful as usual. I had my favourite Gambas Pil Pil (Prawns in garlic) for starter, the chicken and gnochhi, with bakewell tart for dessert. A lovely meal, and we're talking about trying the afternoon tea next time I'm on school holidays. The 20% discount for use in January helped reduce the bill too.
