It was father's day so realise this will have been a busier and noisier day than others so have taken that into account. Staff were friendly and helpful but service was a bit slow, even early on when we were the first table to be seated. We had the meat platter as a sharer for starter, which was a good selection and everything tasted great, especially the pate. I then had slow braised beef which was very good, the only negative was there was too little of the rich, flavoursome sauce - had no problem getting a pot of gravy, which was nice but not as good as the sauce. My husband and son had burgers, they were okay although my son's was dry and he was disappointed that it didn't come with lettuce and tomato - he only mentioned this after eating half of it, otherwise I'm sure we could have asked for it to be added but it would be good to offer it as an option, some kids do like veg! :) Overall, we enjoyed our lunch, the desserts were great too but it all felt a little bit over priced. This doesn't mean we won't visit again but will probably keep it for special occasions

Our table looked like we were shoved in a doorway away from the 3 parties that were happening surely we could have been put some where else. Food tasted fantastic there just want enough of it. Don't think we'll be going again to be honest.

The food appears to be mostly bought in - no real chef skills required. They got the main meal order wrong even after double checking and we had to eat our meals at different times. Over priced for what you get.

Food was great as ever, however service was very slow for some reason. Table was not ready so we had to wait 15 minutes and after ordering main courses at 6:15 they did not arrive until 7:10 so we had two very whingy and hungry kids. This was unusual for this venue and would not stop us going back.

The Cherry Tree has a very friendly atmosphere. The food is excellent. There is ample space between tables and the waiting staff are véy attentive. There is a good selection of food and an even better selection of drinks and cocktails.

The food and service was fantastic but it was very noisy and didn’t create the atmosphere we were looking for. I think maybe we should have chosen to eat later in the evening.

This was a first visit for my friends from Epsom, the service was really good and the waiter was very attentive. We all had the spicy carrot soup which was delicious and my friends had the risotto which they highly recommended.

Such a wonderful Gem and from the minute I entered, the standard and expectation was set.
Great Welcome and thee Bar man made a cocktail that wasn't on the menu but was happy to deliver my request. Great setting attentive and then the food was excellent. Enjoy a menu that I feel I could order anything and wont be disappointed

Will be back well done and very satisfied.

Easy booking online and on arrival we were shown straight to our table. Ordered drinks and provided with menu and within five minutes we had ordered our food and received our drinks. The food arrived within a reasonable time and I would much rather wait for freshly cooked food than be served really quickly with pre cooked. The food was really nice, nothing fancy just really fresh well cooked food which was excellent.
Staff as always friendly and polite and I would recommend visiting here to everyone.

Excellent, I haven’t eaten beef for ages and decided on the Sunday Roast Beef with trimmings it was outstanding. I also liked the variation on a bread and butter pudding - the blueberry croissant pudding, delicious.

I would highly recommend The Cherry Tree

As always, the menu isn't run of the mill. Smoked haddock was beautifully prepared with perfect texture and flavour. The ingredients were fresh and top quality. Service friendly and slick, without being too fussy or intrusive. And the poached eggs are always just right!

I would have done before visiting last Sunday but I was really disappointed with the time it took for the meal to be served. I know that the restaurant was extremely busy but when the meal finally arrived the chips were uneatable and my husband's Sunday lunch looked like it had been out a while.
If they can't cope when busy then I would rather take my custom elsewhere.

Overall 3food 3service 3ambience 3

Booked a table for 3 many weeks ago and mentioned that it was for my sister's birthday. I received a phone call before we went and confirmed my reservation for afternoon tea for 3 people, one of whom was celebrating a birthday. Therefore I was disappointed when we arrived to be shown to a table set for four. When I reminded the young man that i had only booked for 3, he simply said that they only had tables for either 2 or 4. Obviously too much trouble to remove one place setting!! Not a good start and a constant reminder to my sister that her late husband was no longer with us! We were the only ones dining so obviously there was no atmosphere at all in the dining room. Afternoon tea was ok, but nothing special and my meat platter was much nicer. No mention was made of the birthday so overall, I was quite underwhelmed and probably wouldn't go back.

We ate here as a group of 4 on Saturday 4th May 2019 and overall enjoyed the meal.
The restaurant was quite noisy which meant that my fiance had trouble hearing our conversation due to the background noise.
However it was very clean and the food was top notch.
The waiters were lovely however did become confused at times and gave us someone else's dessert before coming back 2 minutes later to take it away.
Overall I would go back again and recommend for the food and location however the staff could do with a little more training.
