A great place to eat, excellent food.

Background music was slightly too loud - but apart from this really enjoyed our visit.

We will come again.

We returned with friends on the basis of an earlier experience when we had found the Market Menu to be a good choice at a reasonable price. This time unfortunately the choice of mains on the Market menu was very limited. Haddock fish & chips, smoked haddock, pork belly and a vegetarian pasta. For us this was not a well balanced choice and frankly took the edge off the occasion as 3 off us ended up defaulting to fish & chips.

Our meal at the Cherry Tree for my daughter's birthday was, as usual, outstanding. The food was cooked to perfection and plenty of it. The problem for us is choosing which of the excellent dishes to have, and believe me we can both be picky with food.
Very good value for money.
Always very clean. Staff are always friendly and helpful.
I would recommend to anyone.

My friend and I had a table booked for 1:30 pm on Monday. I was surprised to see that the dining room was about 2/3 to 3/4 full. There was a large party of eight in the middle of the room and due to the acoustics of the room this made for quite noisy dining experience.
We did seem to be kept waiting a few more minutes then we would’ve expected to be served initially.
We opted for the market menu at £15.95 for two courses. The dessert I wanted was not on the menu so I opted for a starter and a main.
I started with the crispy beef salad which was quite nice and tasty, served with some salad with oriental dressing on it. For main I opted for the smoked haddock. This item was not on the main menu. It was served on the top of some cabbage and chorizo, new potatoes and some sort of creamy haddock sauce with a poached egg on top and watercress. The whole dish was very tasty and just enough for a lunchtime, I probably could’ve managed a dessert but then I would’ve been too full.
On the whole the food was very nice and everything else we saw coming out looked very good, not the cheapest place around but you get what you pay for.
I would recommend this restaurant and will be re-visiting at some point in the near future.

Cherry Treeis my favour restaurant. I had the goats cheese balls followed by fish and chips both from the Market menu. Delicious. The only slight issue on this occasion was that one guest ordered syrup sponge and custard but received syrup sponge and ice cream. This was quickly changed. However the custard was lumpy and only luke warm. When this was pointed out the item was removed from the bill. A considerate touch. Thank you

Food delicious I really enjoyed it . I asked for some horseradish sauce when asked if anything else was needed but never received it . That was the only thing that stopped it from being perfect .

Our experience at the Cherry Tree was just as good as always. The food was excellently cooked and plenty of it. Very good value for money. Very good choices on the menu to suit everyone. The staff were helpful and friendly. The place is very clean. We have already booked again. I have recommended The Cherry Tree several times on social media when people have asked for a good restaurant. I cannot fault it

The service was okay and the staff very friendly. However the food wasn’t up to an acceptable standard at all. The fish and chips were overdone and the linguine pasta fish was full of rubbery sundried tomatoes. Such a disappointment as I had brought my friend from Cheshire for a bite of eat. So disappointing.

The service was terrible, drinks ordered were slow to arrive and when I’d asked for our water jug to be refilled the waitress never bothered. The desserts we wanted weren’t available and the waitress wasn’t attentive or polite. The cherry tree could learn a lot from The Freemasons at Wiswell!

Cherry Tree has always been mine and my husband's favourite pub since we got married. But this was the first time we've been since we had our baby daughter. The service was great.. we were given a table with plenty of space and not rushed at all. The food was delicious as always and the staff were so friendly

We had a meal here on 18 February. The restaurant was reasonably busy for a Monday evening but the service was excellent. The food was fantastic and the deserts to die for! As real ale drinkers we were also happy with the choices available.
Would recommend to all my friends and we will definitely be returning.

First time at the cherry tree, greeted on arrival, and shown to the table. Within minutes our waitress came and took order for drinks, she was very helpful and friendly. Shortly followed by order for our food by the waiter who was equally as friendly... We had three courses and I can only say all the food was excellent, looking forward to a return visit.

Based on our latest visit no I would not recommend. The menu choice was limited & the food average quality. We left feeling a little underwhelmed. Service was ok but only ok at best. Several tables around us were chasing their food & it wasn’t particularly busy. Since our last visit around 6 months ago this restaurant has gone down hill.
