The food, atmosphere and service were absolutely incredible. A new favourite for us!

We were very impressed by our recent trip to The Willow Tree. We went with our 3 year old son - he loved his little portion of Sunday roast beef and ate most of it! The roast beef and the venison were superb. We received a warm welcome from the moment we walked through the door and the service was relaxed and spot on throughout our meal. The decor is very quirky and very cool and we noticed a great selection of winter cocktails.....which we'll have to go back and try! Our son loved his gold chair and staff provided some colouring pens for him.
We went to a Gordon Ramsey eatery in London a few weeks ago and The Willow Tree won hands down on just about every count. Will definitely be coming back for more lazy Sundays.

We had a lovely evening at the Willow tree. It was warm and comfortable with a lovely calm atmosphere. The menu choice was good and we all settled for the roast beef. The beef was tender and perfectly cooked with lovely fresh vegetables and a big Yorkshire pudding. The pudding didn't disappoint, tasty cheese and biscuits and cool tangy passionfruit sorbet. Great service we hope to visit again soon.

The food was very good and not to fancy which we were slightly concerned about when booking. The decor was very good but the best thing was the staff, they were polite, professional and we did not really notice them which is a sign that they are all working hard to give you a great experience. My compliments to the manager. Would be worth getting the gents toilet floor sorting out, Ig you had, I would have given you 5 stars.

This was the forth time we have dined at this establishment, the first three times were ok but on this occasion we were surprised how things changed, the staff were very pleasant but this was the only plus fact of our visit. The service was extremely slow even as the restaurant was not that busy, one starter of the crab ravioli consisted of two small squares of pasta with a dressing of sauce and a small amount of salad all for £8-00 ! . All the main courses were highly salted to the point of being inedible. We paid our bill and left without bothering with any deserts possibly never to return.

It was amazing, the restaurant has a wonderful design, it is cosy and inviting. The food was beautifully cooked and presented, the pork belly is highly recommended. A great cocktail list, I can personally recommend the Autumn Sling and the Spiced Pear. Delicious.
