This restaurant and pub is well worth its rating in the top two for the area. The food was very well cooked and the service by the young waitresses was excellent. The only fault I could find was that the peas on one of the dishes were overcooked. I would certainly visit again.

I booked the conservatory for my 30th birthday as I had a large group of people. From the day I made contact with Jim at The Elm Tree the service was outstanding. He invited me in to look at the room and to discuss meal options and he was really accommodating. On the evening of the meal I had 25... More

First time here so weren't sure what to expect. We were passing and it looks nice from the road. Probably best to book but we turned up on a Saturday and only waited half hour. We saw them helping out a larger group who had turned up ad hoc -the manager phoned round other locals he knew to find them... More

We were there for a weekday lunch and the restaurant exceeded our expectations: the staff was very attentive and friendly. The food was absolutely delicious - modern with a local touch and definitely freshly prepared. We had the asparagus soup as a starter - one of the best I have ever tasted. The main course - fishcakes with sweet potato... More

We both had leek soup, then fish and chips and pie of the day which was beef and veg. Three real ales too - Butcombe,... More

In a traditional country pub setting, the restaurant doesn't disappoint. On a sunny day tables outside are ideal. Inside The Elm Tree's character is welcoming and interesting. ( Don't tell the Americans, they would swarm all over it ) We booked lunch on a sunny day and I selected the sole fillets; my wife chose the roast beef. The place... More
