If ever I am this way I always have lunch at the yew tree. The staff and service is great. The choice of food is amazing always something for everyone. The quality of food is good too. Portion size is large so make sure you leave room for lovely puddings tho. The banoffee pie is well worth trying.

I cannot believe some of the reviews regarding this pub ' crap food' and 'no sauce on my cauliflower' some people simply need to get a life! It's beyond cowardly to sit behind a computer and write bilge. The staff could not be more helpful and obliging and work hard to ensure that we are happy and have everything needed... More

Lovely place for Sunday lunch, proper roast, generous portions and delicious. It's very popular so can be busy. Booking essential!

We have eaten here as a family group on 3 previous occasions and although the service has always been very good, we were a little disappointed with 2 of the meals we had yesterday.We didn't ask the other members of the party. We found the chicken breast with stilton and bacon very tasty but without a white sauce with the... More

We go out here several times a year because of dog friendliness. A cosy feel indoors and gardens outside. A wide variety of meals but on the expensive size,

Six of us had Sunday lunch here, and all the meals were very nicely cooked and tasty. The roast lamb was tender leg and plenty of it. The vegetables were fresh and not over or under cooked, just right. We like our veg, so four types is fine by us! The staff were very polite and efficient.

Had Sunday lunch here today with the extended family. Between us we tackled the swordfish, the roast lamb, the ham hock and the chicken with spinach, ricotta and goats cheese. Followed by multiple servings of treacle sponge. The general state of the table at the end of the meal was one of overfed tranquility. The food tasty, well prepared and... More

Eight of us had lunch here. The pub is attractive with log fires burning. It was easy to book and they were ready when we arrived with two dogs. The menu was extensive - the biggest problem was choosing. The food was very good and portions generous. The service was a little bit slow but the pub was packed and... More
