    I have lived in Bourn for six years but this was my first visit to The Willow Tree. I enjoyed it very much - the food and wine were very good and the staff both friendly and helpful. I had the chicken burgher and next time would ask for the chicken filling without the surrounding bread since I could not manage a dessert.

    Food was all great. Service while very friendly and pleasant felt a little bit disorganised, which would be understandable if the restaurant was full but it was rather quiet. Overall a lovely date night.
