Nice atmosphere and the sport was playing. Great to take dogs in the bar. Food a bit of a disappointment. I had a cheese ploughman that was a big hunk of cheese and good bread... but it just looked a bit sad on the plate... could have done with some lettuce as well. The Vegi burger was a bit rubbish,...

My partner and I visit a couple of times a week mainly whilst walking our dog and we find the pub welcoming but we must comment that we find a chap that works there to be brilliant - nothing too much trouble very attentive to all customers supports the other staff never stands still, he's a real credit to you...

Popped in for coffee and desert. Welcoming staff. Good coffee. Dogs allowed in bar area. Nice puddings but limited to 'the usual suspects'. Good contemporary refit. Families made welcome with small play area etc. Real ale served.

It has been a few years since this was a local of mine. It was always a nice place with welcoming staff. That has not changed, aside from a very nice refit, however it was an absolute creche! There were more under-teen children in the place than adults. It is a shame it has gone the way of so many... More

Very pleasantly surprised and pleased with the new menu after the refit. A broad range of dishes at good prices and some great deals too. I like the way the pub is now in three areas - dining, drinking and games. A good option if you want good pub grub at very reasonable prices.

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
