Decided on Sunday Lunch at the Cherry Tree. Very warm welcome. Speedy service. Starters were heavy choices with garlic, nothing simple and bread was rock hard and biscuity Downside is
lack of meat choice for Sunday lunch so we went for Sea Bass which was delicious. Pudding was divine.
Was hoping for a quiet meal but was faced with the opposite, just one of those things, but love seeing families having a great time. Staff are lovely, very helpful and always smiling. Can't wait to go back.

Love this place the food is fantastic and so is the service. The only down side is the acoustics in the main dinning room, you can’t have a conversation over the noise when it’s busy, they need so noise absorbing Art or things on the wall to help

Our first visit to The Cherry Tree was excellent. We were a party of three and all thought the menu carried a great variety of choice. Our waitress couldn’t do enough: she was cheerful and professional, she checked more than once whether everything was okay and whether we needed anything else. We chose a selection of nibbles to share instead of starters. Our mains were delicious as was the Spanish wine of the week.

My only niggle was the loud music coming from outside which greeted us when we arrived. It might not have drawn us in if we hadn’t already booked. Thankfully this was not repeated inside.

We Love the Cherry Tree and we are regulars the staff are very good and professional
the food is excellent, i Had fish and chips which is always lovely outstanding, but the chips are always a bit hard, you don't get many but i think they are better with home cooked chips these taste like frozen chips, my only gripe!!

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

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.
