Had a excellent meal with brilliant service. But let down by no draught beers bottles only very small selection and charged high prices fir them. For this reason I don't think we'll be going again

We ate here after finding recommendation on here. We turned up at 7:15 and they had a table for us. We shared antipasti to start which was delicious. We had pasta as our main meals which were also wonderful, unfortunately despite our best efforts we couldn't fit in a pudding but had a coffee. Would highly recommend.

We've eaten here for a lunch a few times, but recently went for dinner for the first time.. It's a nice small restaurant with very welcoming staff.

I eat at the Yew Tree at least once a month because it offers exceptional food at affordable prices. The food is always fresh and tasty and served hot. The waiting staff are friendly and discreet, they welcome you into the pre-dining area with drinks and food suggestions before taking your order and showing you to your table just before... More

Popped to the Yew Tree Coffee Shop for lunch today. With my Wife and Daughter (I've already had the pleasure). My daughter had a Panini while my wife and I had a Pasta dish each. What can I say. It was all freshly prepared and the portion sizes were superb. A lovely dresh salad accompaniment and a drink each, and... More
