Went to see a show in Nottingham yesterday. The Willow tree is a short taxi ride from the city centre. Lovely spacious pub, although the staff told us it is going to be re-furbished soon. Drinks were a good price and plenty of choice. Great menu choice at really reasonable prices ( I had a mixed grill which was lovely... More

Was taken here by a relative and have to say, thought we had made a mistake. Not the most attractive part of town from a strangers point of view and after parking the car in the huge but empty car park, headed over the gravel to the main door. On entry we were made very welcome by the manager who... More

great local pub, food is ok, nothing special but fairly nice and they always have a drink deal on and they are usually pretty good value for money :)

Not posh but offers a wide choice of food and it has friendly atmosphere. If you want to watch the football or any other sport it accommodates that weekend fix. We like it.

I have recently moved to the area and this place has quickly become my destination for a few drinks. The staff are always friendly and help provide a great atmosphere. The food is great value and the beer is always on form.

Sadly I have also had the misfortune to be on the receiving end of the Manager's heavy handed and severely poor approach to customer service. We used to be regulars to this pub as the staff (NOT THE MANAGER!) were always friendly, until our very unpleasant trip where the Manager ruined our meeting up with friends. We complained to the...

There has only been 2 sets of vouchers given out in my tenure of 6 years at the willow tree. One that involved my self., and one that was around the time that I was off work during sickness. As I have dealt with one . I am assuming this is the other. If you would like to contact me... More

Used to be frequent visitors to the Willow Tree. A quiet Christmas Eve afternoon meeting with friends for food and drinks was spoiled by the officious manager. One can only assume that he was less than pleased to be on duty on Christmas Eve. Prior to this visit we regarded The Willow Tree as a pleasant estate pub with a... More

Used to use this pub a lot. I like dogs but I do not like sitting in a restaurant next to one. It was also very cold with many people sitting in their coats. Man in charge did not seem concerned...he should be. Bar staff helpful and friendly

Really sorry you received below par service. We strive to give the best service possible , but it's clear we failed on this occasion. Which is unacceptable to me and my team. Please get in contact with the pub on willowtree.nottingham@stonegatepubs.com so I rectify the situation . Thank you for giving feed back . More
