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.

Really nice food but we couldn't hear ourselves speak, it was very noisy. Maybe if there was a quiet section for couples it would have been even better.

Normally a good experience when visiting this resturant. Unfortunately there was no heating at all. A complimentary cup of hot tea would have improved the experience. The manager/owner did not appear to give any explanation of the problem. The waitress/waiter were left to the problem. One was a little off hand with the table next to us because they obviously were not happy with being cold.

We have visited The Cherrytree previously and never been disappointed. On this occasion my wife and I had lunch with my elderly mother (93) as this is her favourite Resturaunt. We were not disappointed, service was excellent, food divine and prepared fresh using local ingredients. Even the sourdough bread which we had with the potato and watercress soup is prepared on site. Main courses of hunter chicken and beef followed by a bake well and coffee. Just the ticket!

HAD AFTERNOON TEA WITH A FRIEND. A BIT OF CONFUSION OVER IT BUT WAS SORTED. WASN'T OFFERED TEA OR COFFEE. ONE OF THE BAR STAFF CONSISTENTLY WALKED AROUND HUMMING TUNES WHICH WAS A BIT OFF PUTTING. IT WAS VERY COLD IN THE RESTAURANT. THE LIGHTS WERE DIMMED AFTER ABOUT 1 HOUR AND WE THOUGHT THEY WERE CLOSING! OVERALL I'VE HAD MUCH BETTER FOR LESS MONEY.

We had a lovely meal and the service was excellent, very friendly and personable staff. The only minor issue was that we had to request a vegan menu as it wasn’t offered when we first sat down, luckily I knew such a menu existed due to the website. Will certainly visit again.

My partner and I found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and we were blown away. Great service, lovely atmosphere (cosy and relaxing) and a wide choice of food for omnivores, vegetarians and vegans. The portion sizes were just right, the food was excellent (boyfriend said the fish he had was the best meal out in a very long time and my burger was to die for) and hot, didn’t wait long for our meals and the servers and hostess were lovely and friendly. Lastly the price was way less than we expected for the quality we got! Highly recommend and we will be coming back with our parents soon for our family meet up!

Recommend by a friend. Went on a lunch time, the restaurant was quite busy, staff were attentive and knowledgable, we all thought there was a limited choice on the menu, and the meals were overpriced, £33 for surf and turf. Which was only ok. The rest of the choices weren’t much better. Not impressed at all.

We love this place. It can be noisy at times if they sit you near a large group!

The food is good... sometimes it could be hotter though and it needs more gravy in the roast dinner.

The Yorkshire’s tend to be too big and too dry! Improvement needed here I think ( just my opinion)

Drinks are expensive
