Can’t fault the food, especially the rib eye steak, cooked to perfection (medium). Overall experience: staff were very friendly and it was a very enjoyable evening.

No fault with the venue, food or service. However, we were there between 6-8pm and I feel that this type of restaurant should have children’s embargo after 6pm. Noise from children in the restaurant was very loud and offputting.

The food and atmosphere were brilliant. The service was disappointing. At the table the waitress almost threw the plates to the table and leant across our table setting rather than going behind. We also asked for 2 changes which were told were not a problem, chips instead of mash and vanilla ice cream instead of coconut. On both occasions we revived both as a side dish. Unfortunately the desert had to go back as coconut ice cream was all over the desert and had to wait for a replacement to be made. In fairness they were very good and did not charge for the desert.

Another nice lunch at the Cherry Tree. Food plentiful and nicely presented. Staff helpful but not intrusive.
Good value for money. Only gripe was that it was quite cold but we put that down to being first in when in opened so not had time to heat up.

Food was tasty especially the celeriac soup. However we waited ages for someone to come and take a drinks order ( and it wasn’t very busy). We had given our food order by then and the cocktails arrived after the soup.! Not good! During the meal I asked for a glass of water which again took some time to arrive and then it was in a glass that must have come straight out of the dishwasher. It was very warm! Atmosphere was ok but music was quite loud.

Living close by, we are frequent visitors to The Cherry Tree. Having seen the launch of their new menu, we ventured to try it out last Friday for my wife’s birthday. Drinks, food and service top notch as usual! Keep up the amazing work!

I found the surroundings quite pleasant and service was pretty fast,almost rushed,but as we were a late seating I can appreciate this.Waiting staff were pleasant although I didn't manage to procure salt and pepper from them before my meal ended as they were busy elsewher,very minor negative point.The last visit I had a problem with my main,but no such nonsense this time.The food was very nice to say the least,and was very much enjoyed, and we do enjoy the cocktails available.Overall a pleasant experience and we'll definitely be back.

Food was excellent on the early bird specials menu, plenty of choice. service was excellent we where treated brilliantly and everyone was attentive. The tables are set out quite good and didn’t feel overlooked. Everything was exceptionally clean and well presented. The toilets where very clean. We could talk easily and didn’t feel we had to raise our voices over the music. My only qualm with the Cherry Tree was the extortionate drinks prices.

Went with a friend to celebrate her birthday, arrived late but still got a table. Very nice environment inside and great view outside. Attentive and efficient service. Superlative local food. Great place to go for a special occassion - definitely not a MacDonald's!

The Cherry Tree never fails to impress. I have not got a bad word to say about it. It is clean, from the cutlery to the tables to the floor. The staff are friendly and helpful without being intrusive. The food, much of which, I believe, is local, is outstanding. Always cooked to perfection. I have never had a bad meal yet. I would and have, recommended The Cherry Tree to lots of people. I will definitely return.

Whilst we very much enjoyed the food: delicious, service very good, friendly staff, lovely when we first arrived at 1pm as pretty quiet, it soon went up a few volumes as more families arrived.
Great to see families eating out together and feeding the little ones but not so great if you’re a bit deaf to start with so can’t compete!
This said, we will definitely be back, as food and service spot on but not for sun lunch, perhaps quieter Time?
This is a honest response from the 3 of us but not a critiscim? (spelling?)
Thank you for a delicious meal 👍

Really enjoyed the meal. We all had 3 courses.
Unfortunately, the main course I had chosen had sold out but my alternative couldn't be faulted.
My only criticism would be the choice of starters for vegetarians was limited and the croissant pudding was disappointing.
Service however, and atmosphere was brilliant, the staff are lovely! Thank you for a lovely night, I'm sure we'll be back.

The food was delicious as always. It seemed very under staffed as we were sat in the conservatory which was full and only one waitress. We were not asked if our food was ok and had to wait a long time for our lunch to come, then again for our desserts.
Maybe staff illness. It won’t put me off going again.
