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.

    We love this place! The food is delicious, original, and well presented. The best part is the ambience; the restaurant is very nicely decorated, with great attention to detail. The staff are very pleasant and friendly. They were amazing enough to put a candle and write "Happy birthday" with chocolate sauce on my boyfriend's dessert as it was his birthday! They also do amazing entertainment on particular nights, we have been to a couple of them before and we really enjoyed them. I'd strongly recommend The Willow Tree, it has something special :)
