Food was delicious, if anything the portions were too big for me

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 the Willow Burger with beef & Nduja to salmon fillet on a bed of fennel, the menu at The Willow Tree restaurant spans the culinary spectrum from pub classics to fine dining. Elsewhere on the menu, find classic pizza, pasta dishes and salads.

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.

    The willow tree is beautiful and my children loved playing in the garden. Food was really nice- shame it took just over an hour to come for 2 children’s meals a pizza and a salad- and then forgot the all the sides.
    Service slow and mistakes on the bill, and the restaurant wasn’t even busy yet.
    A little bit disappointing.

    Great decor and ambiance, we were shown to a lovely big table however this unfortunately collapsed on us! Luckily there was another table that we were able to move to. Although the staff were friendly and polite, the drinks order was incorrect and incredibly slow as were further orders from the bar. 4 out of the 5 starters arrived but the 5th took a further 10-15 minutes (which was the same as another starter - squid). Overall the food was very tasty albeit slightly overpriced.

    Great evening with friends. The staff were great and the food was lovely. Fabulous selection of cocktails and other beverages. Lovely décor - very Alice in Wonderland.

    The restaurant / bar is a perfect setting. The food was fantastic, my favourite was the tiramisu I would recommend leaving some room for this! The staff were really friendly and relaxed.

    Food was great. Mushroom Bruschetta and pizza were amazing! The service was ok, waitresses very friendly but perhaps a little under trained. We also ordered a seafood salad and got a pasta. The glasses of wine we were served were large when we didn’t ask for them. We also order an Irish coffee and got given a mug of black coffee with a shot of whiskey in and a side of milk. Never seen an Irish coffee like that before! The setting is beautiful but maybe service needs a little finessing.

    After booking online, they changed their menu to a temporary Italian theme, so we were unaware until arrival. Disappointing as we had specifically chosen it based on the menu we’d enjoyed previously.
    Service was terribly slow, and more than once two different waitresses would offer us drinks or check on us in quick succession. Also took our food to the wrong table.
    After a long wait for mains, was told they’d informed us in error of the risotto choice, and it was something totally different and was that ok? Unfortunately not ok, but then she offered to doublecheck and were told we could have the original choice in 5 mins!(Takes longer than 5 mins to cook a risotto so not sure what was going on there)
    In summary, food was nice, service slow and disorganised although they were pleasant and trying hard. Was disappointed overall as just felt chaotic

    Nice little restaurant. Pleasant atmosphere and most important- good food. Not as "pubby" as i was expecting but not really a problem for me. Unlike other half . But food so much better than pubgrub. Nice staff too and pricing reasonable. Def worth a visit.
