This was our first time visiting The Old Cherry Tree. The food was good and we actually enjoyed the meals. The whole thing was unfortunately let down by the shocking service. We were seated and forgot about which meant that it took a long time to have our order taken, we then had to ask for a children's menu twice.... More

Fantastic welcome from the Manager, the staff were attentive and happy to help. The table was pre booked, and well appointed with cutlery glasses ect. The meal also was well balanced,with the timing between courses. The meals came hot,freshly cooked, and loads of flavour. The restaurant really made a pleasurable day for the whole family. I would recommend, and we... More

4 of us met up here for drinks and a meal. First impressions were of a lovely well cared for and inviting pub. The current owners have managed that often elusive trick of maintaining the old village pub feel, whilst also welcoming diners. We all had a different starters and main course, and really enjoyed every dish. I had a... More

Booked a table for lunch as a surprise for my wife for her pending 60th birthday. We used to frequent the pub when we first married and it was so lovely to go back after all of this time (we moved away from the county in the mid 90's). Lovely atmosphere and although the lunch prices looked expensive, the quality... More

Popped in today. Thoroughly convivial and really enjoyed light lunch. Sufficient to want to back for an evening meal to sample the proper full menu and stay for longer. Not often you find a decent village pub these days that offers something more than mediocrity. Looks a little diamond!

Overall this is a very warm welcoming pub with friendly attentive staff. We had an evening meal with friends. Menu was promising, would have been good If everything listed was available. That said what we ordered was overall fine. Starters were good however mains could have been better. Two main plates delivered and then a fairly long wait for the... More

We called in to the Old Cherry Tree in Great Houghton some weeks ago on their "Steak night" on the basis that the steaks would probably be very good. Sadly, although the pub was very attractive both inside and out, it was very quiet which was disappointing. We had our starters, which were fine but when the staeks arrived.....3 Rib... More

Hi, Thank you for your review. What a shame you both seem to have had bad steaks. Very frustrating on our part as myself had received comments from the last few weeks saying they were great from customers, also with a review a few weeks ago saying they were 'amazing steaks'. I would hope that in future if there was... More
