Overall, a first rate Sunday lunch. The wine was excellent and surprisingly reasonably priced - not what you tend to expect.
The Box Tree never disappoints. Good, discreet service and always good food. We had the wine recommended with each course and each one was excellent. We had a set menu and enjoyed all the courses.
As always first class food and service. Really important to support and keep on coming back to make sure this magnificent place stays open through the pandemic.
We had a wonderful lunch can’t recommend The Box Tree enough it’s always fantastic x
Really excellent value considering the standard of food being served, very enjoyable evening. Not too over the top as can be the Case with ‘ Michelin Star’ Tasting menus sometimes!
I’m aware the restaurant no longer has the star but I think it’s every bit as good and not so pretentious
Had the most amazing Sunday roast after a walk on Ilkley moor. Made to feel welcome the moment we walked in..... Food was excellent and up there with the very best roasts I’ve had to date. The service was very friendly and respectful in the current climate and I look forwards to going back for my mothers birthday.
refurbished in a rather more modern style to meet the times. The full table cloths have gone, but no complaints . ITS STILL THE BOX TREE and it was busy for Sunday lunch. we will go again.
Great service and excellent food. As always at Box Tree a special event rather than just an enjoyable meal
Excellent Sunday lunch, food was really delicious. Would definitely recommend the Box Tree!
Wonderful experience and amazing food. Very special place
Excellent food and service. Everything was efficient and welcoming. Lunch menu was very tasty.
The food and service at the box tree was absolutely outstanding. All the courses were excellent flavour combinations and the service staff were both knowledgeable and friendly
Our only negative on the experience was that we were seated in a small area with 4 table- 3 tables of 2 and us. 2 of these tables were a party but due to regulations on separate table and they were quite noisy and talking loudly over the tables to each other
However it didn’t spoil our enjoyment of the food and drink, and we would definitely come back !
A perfect evening as always. Great, personable service, delicious food and a lovely atmosphere. This is our third visit in a matter of months (sixth overall) and we look forward to the next!
This lunch was for a friend's "special birthday". It did not disappoint. The food was excellent: each course small but the total lunch more than enough for any appetite and though I cannot fault anything on the menu the mango soufflé & raspberry sauce stood out as heavenly. The "pomme Anna" was so delicious - I could have eaten more of it. Service was very assiduous, friendly and altogether impeccable.
Clearly most people could not afford to eat out at this price routinely but the meal was so special it seemed well worth the cost. I would certainly go again for a special occasion.
3rd visit, lovely as ever, consistently good food, excellent front of house, top marks!!!
It’s the second time I’ve visiting the box tree for dinner and it didn’t disappoint once again the service and food were first class all the way .... wine selection was excellent too .... if your wanting to experience a night you’ll never forget either with friends or your partner I’d highly recommend it as a restaurant to choose ..... I’m trying to get a slot to try the Sunday lunch with friends ,so hopefully that’ll be as great as tonight was .
A massive thanks goes to all the members of staff for working through what are difficult times for everyone and making our evening so memorable
I was very impressed with the food, service and overall experience, would highly recommend!
Excellent food and service as always. The staff always go the extra distance to make sure you have a great experience. We had the tasting menu. It is worth the money for those special occasions. Highly recommended.
Fantastic meal in difficult circumstances given it was one of the first nights of the 10pm curfew.
Wonderful staff, friendly atmosphere and very well managed to ensure everyone felt both comfortable and safe.
Great food, friendly service and a lovely atmosphere
Lovely inventive food selections served with style. Will definitely be returning but may need to save up first!
Superb service, stunning food. Welcoming and warm atmosphere. Would highly recommend the experience.
An excellent evening. A friendly welcome followed by seating at a lovely table Next to a roaring fire. The menu was delicious and served with just the right gaps between courses. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
Booked in for Sunday lunch for two.
Guided straight to the table.
Drinks order taken, made to feel relaxed and ready to enjoy the meal.
Food excellent, as you would expect.
Cooked to perfection.
Pleased that we were not clock watching with parking, as we were there for three hours
Great first time out since lockdown had started.
Excellent food with outstanding service. I would recommend this restaurant.
Have waited a long time to go back to The Boxtree. Food was excellent, service was great and really friendly/welcoming. Total for 3 with drinks was £375, not cheap but worth it.
For pre drinks/post dinner drinks try the Gin Bar around the corner.
Lovely meal and fantastic service - I’ll definitely be coming back!
Fantastic service made us feel welcome and celebrating our special occasion there.
Really enjoyed our evening at the Box Tree, food was fantastic, service impeccable and COVID safety aspects spot on.
I would certainly recommend a visit to this Michelin Star restaurant, and I don’t think it will be long before it gets a second star!
We will certainly be going back soon.
It was fabulous. The goats cheese and beetroot starter was amazing, I’ll never forget the burst of flavour when I tasted the little dot of apple sauce on the thinly sliced beetroot.
The duck melted in your mouth and vegetables were cooked to perfection. My gluten free dessert was fab, how the chef created a white chocolate biscuit I will never know. Just wonderful, can’t wait to return.
Friendly staff who explain each course in detail. Fantastic flavours, couldn’t decide which course I liked best so will have to return & try it all again!!
Certainly a restaurant not to be missed.
Lovely food, well presented. Lots of tasty little extras on the plates such as gels, purees and flowers. The staff were welcoming and friendly. All in all it was a lovely occasion for our wedding anniversary.
Lovely atmosphere and beautiful food. Meat cooked perfectly. Nice to have a choice of food rather than taster menu. Staff always very friendly and helpful.
We visited the Box Tree for the first time for my husbands 70th Birthday. Under covid restrictions we were looking for a small friendly covid aware restaurant with a quality dining experience. The Box Tree did not disappoint. It was all of those things. The tasting menu was absolutely beautiful to look at and delicious in taste. We are a chateaux loving family and lovers of french fine dining of the highest quality. We thought the menu was reminiscent of food we have eaten in the finest restaurants and cannot wait to go back to try another menu. The birthday card on the table a nice subtle touch - no sparklers required. The restaurant is like a private dining room and they have managed the tables very well for social distancing. Don't be fooled by the portion sizes you will struggle to make it all the way through to the end of the signature souffle! A couple of us chose the wine flight which was well matched and I treated my husband to a nice Margaux from the Wine List. Good communication regarding the menu and wines prior to our arrival meant everything was seamless on the night. A very memorable evening and we hope you will soon acquire that star you are searching for!
Excellent food and wine. Adaptations to be Covid safe worked well, were non-intrusive and did not detract from the experience.
The whole experience was amazing. The staff were so attentive and helpful, the tasting menu was out of this world. All very safe and secure. Last came 3 years ago but will be back a lot sooner.
Exceptional food and lovely atmosphere. We love this place and have been going for 40 years!
The food was out of this world. And two puddings. Wow. The service was discreet, informative and friendly.
Wonderful food, welcoming environment, friendly helpful staff, outstanding service
Fabulous food, professional and friendly staff. Relaxed ambience.
Covid prevention measures excellent.
We will definitely be back
