Rang and ordered some takeaway food today. The pub was very busy but despite this I collected our order which was great. Chilly chips are well gorgeous.

My work colleagues and I had a fantastic meal once again, with my favourite dish Chilli Paneer at The Chestnut Tree. I have not found anywhere nearby that does such fantastic food at the most reasonable prices. I would recommend this place to anyone that loves tasty food, and would suggest they try the spicy chips as a must. Can't... More
