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👍😀

Very good food and great service. The lamb main was unreal! Background music was a little on a he loud sound which made it difficult at times to have a conversation. It was Mir foreground than background and this should be addressed.

Definitely would visit again as overall a very good experience.
