HAD AFTERNOON TEA WITH A FRIEND. A BIT OF CONFUSION OVER IT BUT WAS SORTED. WASN'T OFFERED TEA OR COFFEE. ONE OF THE BAR STAFF CONSISTENTLY WALKED AROUND HUMMING TUNES WHICH WAS A BIT OFF PUTTING. IT WAS VERY COLD IN THE RESTAURANT. THE LIGHTS WERE DIMMED AFTER ABOUT 1 HOUR AND WE THOUGHT THEY WERE CLOSING! OVERALL I'VE HAD MUCH BETTER FOR LESS MONEY.

We had a lovely meal and the service was excellent, very friendly and personable staff. The only minor issue was that we had to request a vegan menu as it wasn’t offered when we first sat down, luckily I knew such a menu existed due to the website. Will certainly visit again.

My partner and I found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and we were blown away. Great service, lovely atmosphere (cosy and relaxing) and a wide choice of food for omnivores, vegetarians and vegans. The portion sizes were just right, the food was excellent (boyfriend said the fish he had was the best meal out in a very long time and my burger was to die for) and hot, didn’t wait long for our meals and the servers and hostess were lovely and friendly. Lastly the price was way less than we expected for the quality we got! Highly recommend and we will be coming back with our parents soon for our family meet up!

Recommend by a friend. Went on a lunch time, the restaurant was quite busy, staff were attentive and knowledgable, we all thought there was a limited choice on the menu, and the meals were overpriced, £33 for surf and turf. Which was only ok. The rest of the choices weren’t much better. Not impressed at all.

We love this place. It can be noisy at times if they sit you near a large group!

The food is good... sometimes it could be hotter though and it needs more gravy in the roast dinner.

The Yorkshire’s tend to be too big and too dry! Improvement needed here I think ( just my opinion)

Drinks are expensive

Ordered Sunday lunch fir 2 . Asked for crisp Yorkshire and roast potatoes - did not rate - although tasty not what I requested . Has a tabje fur 16 seated just after we had finished mains. Left without ordering dessert or other drinks disappointed as we had been looking for s table for 2 with good ambience and did not expect a birthday party for 16 people to he seated next to us!

We met with friends for lunch and were very impressed. The menu allowed for everyone to eat as many courses as we wanted. One of us chose only the soup whilst the rest of us had two courses. The smoked haddock risottos was one of the best risottos I’ve ever eaten. The staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive without being in your face. We will definitely go back.

Had a lovely steak here, all I would say it took a while for the mains to arrive and also the restaurant was very warm to the fact I was starting to sweat. There’s keeping the place warm and then there’s being in a furnace ha! Overall great food and a nice restaurant, so didn’t mind the wait.

An excellent meal once again...….

It was an opportunity for me and my soon to be wife to see my parents before our wedding.

Sunday lunch upto its usual excellent standards and a seasonal treat of a Christmas dinner option which was cooked to perfection.

All food is cooked well, even details like the Roast Potatoes, vegetables, etc are cooked properly.

Highly recommended

The only criticism I have with the Cherry Tree is that they are unable to cater for garlic allergy/intolerence, not able to offer much at all that does not contain garlic. For that reason I am not able to visit with one particular friend.
Other than food is excellent.

Took my cousin for afternoon tea for a significant birthday. Expected something special as the restaurant is lovely, in a lovely setting and in the past the food has been good. We were very disappointed, the food we had was very nice but there was very little of it and there were no refills of tea or coffee. Compared to other afternoon teas we have had, some within the same vicinity, it was very poor value for £18 each.
