We visited with our friends who were very happy with the meals, but myself and my wife both choose cod for our mains, We were both still hungry due to the lack of vegetables served with the main. we would of ordered sides if this was recommended at time of ordering

Absolutely gorgeous!!!. Went on a Friday evening. Great atmosphere inside the restaurant which also looked really stunning outside with the lights and outdoor area. We were welcomed and kept informed about the table as we were a little bit early. Bar area great and very well staffed. I had duck salad starter and my partner had goats cheese, both delicious. We also had 'fingerpost' savignon blanc wine which was lovely.
We then had Malaysian chicken curry - also delicious and hoping to be able to book for Christmas Lunch. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Very nIce meal but cannot understand why they don’t cater for the 1 in 15 people who eat at the restaurant and are diabetic. No low sugar desserts and “there is no call for cheese and biscuits”. They cater for vegans though at 1 in 100. Before I go again I will check what they offer for us 3million plus disbetics..

The experience was very good but spoiled a little by my husband's meal not being hot...surely this should be checked? However, this was quickly rectified. The food was very good and the service was excellent.

We have eaten at The Cherry Tree several times and really enjoyed it. Last Sunday we were looking forward to a Sunday roast beef dinner. We were booked in for 5.15 and was seated promptly. My husband had the black pudding starter while I opted for the cauliflower and cheese soup - both were served hot and were delicious. Our roast beef dinners arrived on a lovely hot plate and looked lovely but unfortunately the roast beef - the star of the show was as tough as old boots.We had ordered it pink - goodness knows how anyone who ordered well done even managed to cut it as we really struggled and looking around quite a few people were struggling. We left most of the beef but ate everything else which was very good. We did tell the waitress we couldn’t eat it and she did say that she would let the chef know but no one came to us which was disappointing. A real let down for the best restaurant in Bolton.

The BEST Sunday Roast around, Beef, cooked to perfection, melts in your mouth, accompanied by all the trimmings inc a Yorkshire of course. Love it here, staff are always friendly, professional and attentive. 😁

The food and service is excellent however it lacks atmosphere. It’s a little dated with light wood tables and matching chairs. Venetian blinds are a bit clinical and the tables are too close together.
Soft furnishings are lacking and so it didn’t feel very intimate

Destination restaurant for a special occasion. The staff were excellent. Polite and efficient without being intrusive. The food was cooked to perfection. When we arrived the table allocated to us was next to a table with babies and toddlers on it, so we quietly and politely asked to be moved elsewhere, which Tracey did for us speedily and without any fuss. We had a lovely evening.

Our meal at the Cherry Tree was excellent as always. Good food cooked to perfection. Very good value for money for the standard of food here. The food is always well presented and plenty of it. There is a wide variety of food on the menu to suit all tastes. The drinks menu is also impressive. The staff are pleasant and helpful. The place is always clean. The atmosphere is good - a pleasure to be there. The tables are arranged so you are not overlooked. I often recommend on social media. My favourite place to eat by far. We will be returning soon.

We have been to the 'Cherry Tree in Blackrod' many times, the experience Sunday 06/01/2020 was excellent, the service, friendly staff, and of coarse the food was all wonderful. Like I have said, I have been here many times and this experience was no different from the other times, consistently excellent! Well done to the Cherry Tree Team, I will no doubt visit again soon.

Our meal here was excellent. Very attentive staff, tables laid beautifully. Great ambience and for a large place it was cosy and inviting. It was also a comfortable temperature, some restaurants can be cold until they get busy. All in all a perfect visit. We each ordered a different meal and each of us enjoyed our food - it really was delicious. We'll definitely visit here again. 5*

Restaurants in the area serve very similar dishes but the Cherry Tree was different- everything was outstanding. Classic British dishes done with more flair. They also do proper cocktails by this New Yorker’s standard. Ambiance and service were lovely. I can’t wait to return!
