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.

Normally we throughly enjoy our visits to the Cherry Tree, however we were extremely disappointed with this weeks visit, our main course was tasteless.

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.

Food was stunning & staff very attentive without being intrusive.
This was an afternoon lunch and although the restaurant wasn’t packed the noise level was quite high and it was difficult to hold a conversation because of this. I appreciate it’s in a conservatory setting with tiled floors but it did spoil the lunch slightly.

We dined here on Saturday for our Anniversary celebration and WOW, The Cherry Tree never disappoints!

This time I chose the shoulder of Lamb and all I can say is it was exquisite, melt in the mouth heaven. Followed by the legendary sink in your seat sticky toffee pudding, delicious!

The atmosphere and attention to detail is first class, with mood lighting to suit the evening and the sound of happy customers surrounding us made for a relaxing time.

I would like to give thanks to the Chefs for producing such stunning food, to the bar staff for their addictive cocktails, and to the front of house staff for excellent customer service bringing such a warm welcome.

We are lucky to have such an establishment so close to our home.

We WILL be back very soon.

The food and the service couldn't be faulted, unfortunately we visited at a bad time, as there was a party of young ladies celebrating one of their Birthdays and it was rather noisy.

I have been here with my boyfriend for drinks and light meals but went for a Sunday meal for my birthday with my parents. Everyone was so happy and impressed with their food as well as the service and atmosphere. It's just a really really nice place to go, no matter the occasion. I would highly recommend !

A great meal as always , cauliflower cheese soup was great really tasty , Sunday lunch was good, quality ingredients cooked to perfection. The dessert was the best we had ever tasted - tiramisu with caramelised pistachios on top - divine. Service exemplary and couldn’t fault a thing , will definitely be returning soon
