With a country garden overlooking rolling hills, a bar with an open fireplace and a candlelit restaurant, The Willow Tree in Cambridge blends fairy tale charm with country chic. The restaurant’s mix of English and European dishes from locally sourced produce have earned it a place in the Michelin Guide.

From fish and chips with mushy peas to sea bass with leek rosti and vanilla and coriander sauce, the menu at The Willow Tree restaurant spans the culinary spectrum from pub classics to fine dining. Dishes such as locally sourced fillet steak with Cambridge Blue sauce or corn-fed chicken with parmentier potatoes showcase the restaurant’s commitment to local produce and delectable food

Meals here are topped off by a selection of international wines, local ales, stunning cocktails and local fruit juices. The delightful setting is enhanced by live jazz, summer garden parties and cabaret dining.

As if plucked from the pages of an idyllic fairy tale, this enchanting gastropub lies in the picturesque village of Bourn, 9 miles from Cambridge city centre.

    Despite being extremely busy the service and food was excellent. Good atmosphere, suitable for couples and groups.

    Great service, staff, ambience and main courses delicious. Deserts were disappointing, but the overall dining experience made for a great family dinner

    Lovely location and setting
    Nice ambiance
    Sunday lunchtime service - have had much better and for less elsewhere
    Staff pleasant, but not really attentive and on the ball.
    Kept waiting for 20 mins before food order taken - only then to be told that one main dish item we wanted not on menu that day (had "a rush on the night before") . Why didn't say before - and save further delay / disappointment ?
    Starter - scallops - cold / insipid. Poor
    Main - pork belly nice, but accompanied by a ladle full of mash. Ok.
    Dessert - best course. V good
    Wine - Aus Shiraz - standard stuff and way over priced. Disappointing
    Overall - disappointing. Might try again, but not in rush to return
