Came to the Yew Tree for dinner on Saturday night, which is a quaint pub restaurant with lovely character. The food was nice, the atmosphere was welcoming and the service was great. Our main server, a helpful blonde waitress, was very attentive and knowledgeable. Would definitely come again.

Visited this traditional Pub for the first time after passing it for years. Decided to visit. Great service, land lord was very comical and food was excellent. We all had something different, Lamb Shank, Curry and Pork Belly all cooked and tasted to high standard. We will call in more often now

We attended on a Tuesday evening with our two young children. We were very impressed with the interior and how lovely and cosy it was. The children's menu had a lovely variety and all of our meals were really tasty. It's in a lovely setting and we will definitely visit again 👍
