    Food good enough. Service was slow and had to repeatedly ask for the same things. Mint sauce arrived so late after asking the the roast was almost finished

    Slightly disappointed with our visit to the Willow Tree this time. It took and hour for starters to be served (and the restaurant was not that busy) and we had to change our main course option after being assured it would definitely be available and then turned out not to be. Nice staff and a nice birthday pudding though.

    We found the decoration a little odd in the pub but that is all down to personal choice although the dining chair was not a comfortable sit, there was no back support. We all felt the prices were just above what they needed to be for the entire menu and the amount of sweet potato a half of what was required but the Eton Mess double what was required. We enjoyed our lunch .

    Thank you to the whole Team at The Willow Tree, Bourn for a wonderfully relaxed Sunday lunch. It really is a delight to have the time to fully enjoy the wonderful ambience, drinks and food. Thank you.

    Food okay,from instagram videos you would expect wow, but it wasn’t. Staff really lovely, but needs training. Place was nice some time ago, needs cleaning. Our wooden table was sticky. Decorations- pink plastic flowers - dusty and faded. Outside looked messy and untidy. We wanted a special meal, but it wasn’t. The ambiance was lovely some time ago. We won’t be back I’m afraid.

    Great food, if a little pricey and a little slow services and not the most helpful but a great experience overall. Lovely garden with domes which we didn’t try but will definitely come back again. Quite dog friendly too.

    In summary, food was nice but service let it down. Staff were very nice but seemed to disappear and we waited ages for everything. Drinks had to be chased up, ordered wine specifically to accompany main course and had half finished dinner before it arrived (after chasing it again), left sitting for ages before dessert was offered and then waited again before being served dessert. Restaurant was empty so not sure why this was (staff are very young, maybe inexperienced?) Also had pate and soup to start and these didn’t arrive with any bread - which seemed strange. Again, no one arrived to check on us so we just ate them without! Very expensive meal which left us feeling ripped off despite the food being tasty.

    Started off well with being offered to sit outside in the garden which was beautiful, music (which was a bit loud) playing and lovely ambience. Mains arrived *fish and chips in slightly soggy batter. Then asked about desserts which we said yes to, and after the order taken, we were then totally forgotten about. We asked to move inside as chilly and told to sit where we liked. Once inside, despite the owner seeing us and walking past us she never came back to check we got desserts. We waited about 20 mins before we were brought the tiniest Panna cotta for £9 and 3 scoops of ice cream (the mint choc was grainy and not v nice). It seemed they totally lost interest in us. For the price, the food is not value for money even though very nicely presented. Also, provide consistent service.

    There was a wedding so I think the booking for afternoon tea probably shouldn’t have been taken. We had to wait for ages for our afternoon tea and we only received one knife for savoury and scones and no spoon for crumble. We did not have regular visits to our table which I had experienced previously and on leaving we were charged for the afternoon tea and extra for the tea/coffee which was deducted when queried.
