Food was good, cocktails particularly good (Willow Tree Mule), had to wait a little for food but the environment was really nice - relaxing, great lighting choices and attentive staff. I have already recommended to others.

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.

    good atmosphere esp. the lighting excellent service, the food was good and the apple crumble was exceptional different and very delicate. The only bad point and this is long standing at the willow tree, is the quality of the chairs. To have many different style chairs is a "cute" feature some are very poor quality uncomfortable and often very wobbly. No matter how good the food and service is,
    a lousy chair spoils everything. We had to move tables because of this and still needed the staff to bring a cushion for my wife. The staff happily are very nice and caring.

    Rather a mixed evening in terms of quality and service.

    The Sunday Roast was amazing. Starters however were a little disappointing. I think this was to do with presentation (pheasant came in a bowl, making it difficult to eat) and the figs and goats cheese crostini, although tasted fine, the goats cheese looked like it had separated whilst being heated. The portion was also massive for a starter.

    Excellent food - and friendly helpful service.
    The food as served was excellently presented and tasted great!
    Loved the decor/ambiance.
    It was a cool early autumn day when we visited - and some of our party commented it was slightly cool.
    Minor item: Service could have been very slightly quicker although we were happy to take our time.
    Overall - would recommend as a good place to dine out.

    The Willow Tree was quiet but the food was great. The tapas starter was very tasty and the chef replaced the squid with some battered haddock for us. Mains of Garden Burger and the Spatchcock Chicken were polished off in no time. Just room for a shared desert after that. Overall a lovely night out.

    The food was fantastic and staff were lovely. The only small issue we had that 3 of us had received our meals and one was left waiting for hers but the meal was already getting cold. It was awkward to eat whilst she was waiting. The same lady also only got a small portion of cheese cake as they had run out. Money was knocked off for this. But we felt bad as it was a birthday treat for her. Otherwise everything else was perfect and the place is beautiful

    There were four of us for dinner. We had starters, mains and puddings and all were really lovely.
