This place is brilliant. The service was first class and the food was outstanding. The Charolais beef was superb.

    Our Sunday lunchtime meal at the Nut Tree was one of the more enjoyable experiences I have had for a few years. The service was friendly, the food was excellent and I was particularly impressed by how well the kitchen and serving staff dealt with our slightly unusual diet, with a minimum amount of fuss. I particularly enjoyed the beetroot and goats curd starter (I guess a fairly standard dish, but so well delivered) and the bergamot souffle (which was unusual, surprising and delicious).

    Food and service were excellent - staff really warm and friendly. when they found out it was my birthday they even brought out a special birthday desert for me - after the 8 course tasting menu! the 1st week after New Year and midweek it was quite quiet in the restaurant though the pub side was busier. each course was excellent in its own right and the seasonal menu married together superbly; the parsnip soup and crisp (amuse bouche) was fantastic and i could have had just a huge bowl of that with the sourdough bread, the main course fillet of Charolaise beef was cooked to perfection and did just melt in the mouth; pre-desert was a divine passion fruit soufflé and the chocolate desert and milk ice cream just topped it off - heavenly!

    Excellent food.
    We were seated next to the fireplace. The cushions on the bench against the wall had been cleaned with a product which made my guest feel unwell.
