If ever I am this way I always have lunch at the yew tree. The staff and service is great. The choice of food is amazing always something for everyone. The quality of food is good too. Portion size is large so make sure you leave room for lovely puddings tho. The banoffee pie is well worth trying.

I cannot believe some of the reviews regarding this pub ' crap food' and 'no sauce on my cauliflower' some people simply need to get a life! It's beyond cowardly to sit behind a computer and write bilge. The staff could not be more helpful and obliging and work hard to ensure that we are happy and have everything needed... More

Lovely place for Sunday lunch, proper roast, generous portions and delicious. It's very popular so can be busy. Booking essential!

We go out here several times a year because of dog friendliness. A cosy feel indoors and gardens outside. A wide variety of meals but on the expensive size,

Six of us had Sunday lunch here, and all the meals were very nicely cooked and tasty. The roast lamb was tender leg and plenty of it. The vegetables were fresh and not over or under cooked, just right. We like our veg, so four types is fine by us! The staff were very polite and efficient.
