An unreal Christmas Eve meal which was just perfect.
We were sat at a high table and it felt cozy, warm, safe and was beautiful opposite the fire place.
Staff were amazing and food incredible. Can’t wait to return!

If your are local you will know.. if you are not its worth the drive.. if you want to impress then weeping willow is a great place to start.. if you want quality then the weeping willow is ground zero. Cannot praise the Weeping Willow enough...

Very lovely place/set up and good food, especially since they are having to cope with covid restrictions. My only grumble is that it was cold in the restaurant, especially since every time the door opened for the staff to take the food outside it became really chilly. I will definitely return and would recommend though. Thank you

The weeping willow, as always was a magical experience. Beautiful environment, delicious food and professional, kind, happy staff. It felt very festive, safe and secure, was a pleasure to be out for dinner once again!

Can’t recommend highly enough!

Nice teepee experience overall with good variety on the menu. Slight delay to one of the drinks arriving and also the main for the same person hence the small mark down.
Nice staff and the venue is really lovely and Christmassy.

We received a warm and friendly welcome. The service was very good and the food was outstanding. The ‘posh chips’ were amazing. A nice relaxed meal , we were there for 2 hours and only had one course !! Just what you want on a Friday afternoon.

We had not been out for an evening meal in such a long time due to the virus so we were looking forward to a change of scenery. The Weeping Willow certainly did not disappoint. The 3 course meal was outstanding along with the delicious well kept beer and wine. We will definitely be booking again soon.

Food was served cold so we sent it back, the plates that were replaced were missing a lot of the vegetables it should have been served with. Excessively priced for what was offered. Staff were polite though and it is a nice venue.

Shame have been to The Weeping Willow several times, service was dreadful, had one drink, starter came and then waited an hour for our main course, when called the waiter,
we where told well we have got 150 people in, no appology. Will not be hurrying back.

Very high standard of food with good and informal service. Good choices for all courses but not an excessive menu. Nice atmosphere too, and feels safe in the current situation. This is the second time we have eaten here and we have been impressed both times. Not cheap, but worth the money.

I really enjoyed my first visit to the Weeping Willow. The atmosphere of the night before lockdown was great. I had the elderflower gin cured salmon for starter and the monkfish and scallop thai curry... the food was excellent.

Weeping Willow is only the next village to my new house, so this will be my go to entertaining restaurant. I would be happy to support when they reopen.

Took my 93 year old mother before she has to self isolate again. Service was professional but friendly with just the correct amount of attentiveness without being pestered every 5 minutes with "is everything alright ".

Food was very tasty, well presented and good value, what more could you want?
