Selected as a result of trip advisor reviews. We arrived for our 730 pm booking and found the pub was really busy but our table was ready and we were quickly shown to our seats. There is a specials board s well as the house menu. All of which we could have chosen. There is a large selection of real... More

If you are in the vicinity of Cheltenham and fancy a pint in a typical old english pub, then the House in the Tree will definitely tick the box. But if you don't have a meal in their smashing restaurant then you will only have had half the experience. Great food, warm friendly staff and ambiance by the bucket load.... More

Have visited this eating house/pub many times and it is fantastic. Both food and staff are great. It also has a lovely garden for summer time.

We visited here with our friends over from Ireland for the races. Lost big time at the races, but more than made up for it here. The food is absolutely fantastic. We ordered the Cesar salad, gammon, steak and ale pie and sea bass. No complaints at all. The staff very friendly and helpful. Thoroughly recommend.

Sunday lunch at the House in the Tree is an absolute treat and excellent value for money. There are four meat dishes on the menu with a fish and a vegetarian alternative. The main meal is served with seasonal vegetables. We have eaten Sunday lunch here before and on each occasion the meal has been faultless. Booking is generally necessary... More

We went here for lunch with friends and I'm glad we booked before hand, the place was really busy at lunch time. We were a biggish party and all wanted something different from the really good menu. It all came out quickly and together which was lovely. The food was really good generous portions and all the little extras you... More

This is still top notch home cooked pub food! Only problem is you need to book as mostly always full! The steak pie is out of this world! Only if you have a big appetite though, but I can't resist! Would recommend highly.

Thank Pewter
