Gourmet twists on pub classics can be found in dishes like pork sausages with mash and onion gravy, and smoked salmon fishcakes with tomato butter sauce.

    We always enjoy going to dine at the Nut Tree. It is a treat. The food is invariably delicious and the staff are charming and helpful. I think we would have preferred it if the music had been a little softer. It didn't impinge on the conversation, but we were very aware of it.

    There is a mismatch between the food , the cost and the kind of service received. The two young waitresses need some serious training, did they tell us what the specials were or offer to hang our coats, NO. The pub serves a nice range of sherry by the glass, the waitress seemed to think it was sold the by glass size (as per the wine) and got quite annoyed when we couldn't pick a size, it was just one size. When it came to ordering dessert we asked for a little time before choosing,but that seemed to not sit well with the staff so on the third time the waitress came to ask, she said look are you having dessert or not! The two male waiters were very good and helpful, but it was marred by the other waiting staff. It was local pub service at top restaurant prices.. It is not a place to linger, we couldn't wait to get out of there..

    Every single mouthful was an absolute joy. Excellent service too. I brought my 87 year old mother with me for lunch and the staff looked after her wonderfully well.

    Excellent service; friendly, relaxed, attentive but not obtrusive. Atmosphere: intimate, cosy, relaxed Food: exquisite, delicious from starter to desserts. Little tasters were amazing. The mushroom soup was amazing. It was simply a beautiful experience from beginning to end. I would highly recommend the Nuttree for any special occasion.

    I had the tasting menu with my partner a few weeks backs. The best dish was the amuse bouche with a piece of bread that you could choose between the different beads. The rest of the tasting menu I found it a bit disappointing as I was supposed to be having dinner in a Michelin star restaurant from 2008. We were sat by the fire in the old part of the restaurant - it was a very nice table! But every time someone walked near us, the floor was "jumping" like we were having an earthquake.
