    We have been to the Nut Tree many times over the years, and it remains the only restaurant we have ever visited, that be faulted in any way. The location, the food and the service were just superb as always

    We went for midweek lunch because it is equidistant between us and our friends. The approach is very appealing; through Cotswold villages. The outward appearance is very attractive and the car parking is excellent. We were met by a very quiet Jack Russell who also bid us goodbye. The interior is very characterful, if a touch dark. We were met immediately and offered drinks. We were then shown straightaway to our table. The food quality was superb and served piping hot - a rare treat. The staffing was tremendous and they were all customer oriented. I wish that we had been hungrier but unfortunately we could only manage a main course each. Two of us had fish and chips. One had “Onglet” steak and the other had a pork dish from the main menu. The portions were the perfect size for us and the food was stunningly good. The staff were fully attentive throughout, without being intrusive. I thoroughly recommend this restaurant and certainly hope to go again - although it is quite a long way from where we live.

    This was the fourth time I have been to the Nut Tree, the first time many years ago. This time I took my parents and brother and the experience was perfect. The service is a lovely mix of efficiency and friendliness and the food was faultless. My mother and I actually chose from the slightly cheaper specials, mouthwatering fish and chips and turkey and mushroom pie with lots of gravy just how she likes it. The accompanying sprouts were so mouthwatering I could have had a plate just of those! Because we had the option of the slightly cheaper specials it made our bill so reasonable we will be going back sooner rather than later. So a deserving thank you to all the wonderful team at The Inn.

    The service was impeccable and friendly, we don’t like things over formal. The food, especially the main course was exceptional. It’s our third time dining there for my Wife’s birthday and they have always exceeded expectations
