We went for Sunday lunch and this was our first visit for Sunday lunch. The service, although very, very good was slow. They were very busy but we were left sitting for a long time before we got the menus, and then a long time until we were able to order our drinks and menu choices. That said the service was lovely and we were well looked after. The food was excellent and one of the best Sunday lunches I have had around this area. It was quite noisy as all furniture and floors are wood so if you have people with hearing aids, which we did, they couldn't really hear very well due to background noise. Overall, apart from the slowness of the service, it was a very good experience and we will be back!

It was the first time we dined here and we will be going back. Although I felt it was a rather limited menu I was not disappointed with the quality of the food. It was excellent. Very well cooked (I had cod and it was cooked to perfection). Well presented, attentive staff. I had 2 cocktails and they were lovely.

Location was easy to find. Lovely ambiance with everything looking fresh and new. It wasn’t noisy which was great for catching up with family. Food and service were first class. We all had separate dishes and all were perfectly cooked and well presented. We would definitely go back again and would highly recommend this restaurant.

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 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.

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.
