Lovely night out. Food was fab and the service really friendly and on point. Made a great effort at making outdoor night time dining good - loved our blankets. Xx

Food good, service not good
Table wasn’t ready on time, ordered food and drinks at same time. Starters arrived before drinks. Had to ask where they were. Waiter brought champagne opened it and started to pour to which I then had to tell him it was the wrong one (surely you present the label to the customer first?) That all happened whilst his colleague (some kid) stood there and blatantly refused to bring another champagne flute (one was dropped) in front of us in some sort of flirtatious act whilst I was still waiting to get my drink. Rest of meal was good but unsurprisingly the bill had the wrong champagne on it which meant another embarrassing conversation with the waitress. My experience sadly left me feeling the place is overrated

Although this was booked four weeks in advance, we arrived 10 mins early for the 5pm booking. We then proceeded to wait a further 30 mins despite reminders that our table was booked for 5pm. Finally was seated at 5.30pm. Food and drink was fine and the seating area was lovely and warm but the very loud booth next to us made it difficult to hear our own party. It was very obvious even to the waiting staff at how noisy they were as they couldnt hear us very well to take the meal orders. We had to eventually speak to the senior staff to ask them to have a word. I though it was pretty obvious to all and if they had perhaps had a ‘word’ first, the whole meal experience would have been a little leas frought. I recommended the venue to my friends who hadnt been before as it was one of my fave places. I was left slightly embarrassed as the evening didnt go as well as I had envisaged. On reflection, the waiting time in the cold set the tone for the evening. A real shame.

Love this place. The food and the service is always excellent. However our table wasn't great and had no heater nearby. The table was directly opposite the entrance and wasn't the best . Still thoroughly enjoyed our food .

We were celebrating my boyfriend’s birthday & our anniversary.
The staff were all so lovely & friendly. I can imagine it can’t be easy for them having to learn & then enforce all these new rules & regulations regarding COVID.
The Cherry Tree have done a great job of extending their outside space making it look cute & welcoming to customer. Even though outside it was cold, seated inside the marquee next to the heater with the sun beaming down it was so warm.
The food was incredible & so hard to choose off the menu as there was so many delicious options.
The only blunder was when we asked what draft beers / gins the restaurant had, our waitress didn’t know. Although she explained these had all been changed during lockdown & the staff had only been updated that day so completely understandable.

Excellent food & service. Had to wait around 10mins for our table but no problem in today's climate. Our only problem was the bill, had to return twice due to other people's drinks on it.

First time at the cherry tree. Lovely restaurant. Issue with the Gas so limited menu. But happy with food options. Chips with steak didnt appear cooked properly. At 1hr 30 min asked to drink up drinks. Im aware there is a time limit but didn't appreciate being rushed. However I would return in the future.

Picked up a excellent deal for a Thursday night. Live singer, bottle of wine included with the meal. All food courses were excellent and great to have live music in the background to add to the atmosphere.

Frighteningly crowded in these Covid times. Very noisy. Singer encouraged noise level to rise and loud voices and shouting to become inevitable. Food was good, hot and served with a smile but was woefully short of vegetables.

The food and service was excellent. The Cherry Tree was nicely warm and comfortable.
The new desert I had with the cherry mouse was nice but was set out on a dark plate which made it look a little unexciting. Had the desert been put on a white plate it would have had a wow, and the colours would have stud out. Keep up the good standard and I will see you soon👍😀
