Amazing food as always, great cocktails, wine and food. Lovely friendly staff. My only thing would be to have red wine served in a red wine glass. Fantastic place.

Fantastic as always. Lovely welcome back from Tom, meal was perfect and our server, Mya ,was very attentive and polite.
Only complaint we have was our before and after drinks. My husband asked for his pint to be replaced as it was cloudy and it wasn't replaced until I had almost finished my gin and tonic. After our meal I ordered a cocktail which seemed to take ages to make and then was then left on the bar for at least 5 min until my husbands whisky was then poured. We were sat next to the bar so couldn't help but notice this. But overall we enjoyed our night just think the bar staff could have been a little bit more attentive with getting the drinks sent out

The new extended restaurant has been beautifully done. The staff were very helpful and tables were spaced suitably apart.
We sat in the bar for 10-15 minutes waiting to order drinks (which never came) and for our table to be prepared.
We were seated in the new dining room which was lovely but I think the lighting was too bright for an evening meal. Probably in need of some wall lights. But it would probably be lovely if it was a balmy summer evening and the large glass doors were open. However, We found the music to be too loud to speak quietly to each other and found ourselves raising our voices to be heard which is probably not ideal with COVID around. We did ask for it to be turned down which it was only to be turned up 20 minutes later by somebody else.
The menu was varied but as a pre-COVID regular we found the food to be a little bland and the portions seemed smaller than usual. Nothing major but not as enjoyable as usual.
Overall we had a nice evening, the atmosphere was pretty good considering the circumstances and hopefully the loud music and food issues are just a temporary blip whilst things are getting going again.

Food and service was very good, only let down was that we were sat very close to the kitchen and could hear the chef shouting

I love the Cherry Tree but did not feel comfortable with the Covid 19 measures in place. The tables were far too close together and I saw no evidence of social distancing by the staff. I would return and recommend normally but not under the current circumstances, more needs to be done to safeguard customers and staff.

Been previously and always been excellent. Refurb looks nice but the time off seems to of made the staff forget how to serve. As polite as they were service was slow and items were forgotten. The food was nice but nothing worth shouting over.

Food was excellent as was service especially given covid guidelines. What spoilt is was the noise level from the music and the constant manic shouting from the kitchen.

Lovely looking place, staff are pleasant but not keeping to 1 meter rule during covid 19, other guest were walking straight into restaurant and we were made to wait even though we had booked. Not made clear that we weren't allowed near bar, will go again to try.

A few teething problems - 2 out of the 4 starters were wrong but this was rectified in about 5 minutes & they were removed from the bill. Also brought me red instead of white wine. Food was nice & service attentive. Good layout inside. Deserts expensive although rest of menu fairly reasonably priced.

Always a pleasure to dine here. The service and standards were excellent despite being freshly opened after lockdown. The extension and refurbishment was stunning. Something that you would expect to find at a high end city restaurant and the usual high standards of food were maintained. Will be back soon.

Table we were given in a thoroughfare, Yorkshire puddings burned to a crisp and had to be changed, all food was only lukewarm. We've had much better meals here and hope to in the future and put it down to the new regulations stretching the staff. If this standard is repeated, probably won't return.

There were great social distancing measures, hand sanitiser and a track and trace system in place.

The food was very good a fantastic Sunday lunch.
