Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Unfortunately it looks like the Beachtree has closed. A favourite place we have visited many times and we will miss our Christmas visit this year. Let’s hope it opens again in the coming months.

Found this restaurant by chance and so glad we did. Really nice venue inside - staff were very friendly and food was delicious. We went for the Calamari and Pork Belly to start, the chicken and lamb for main and the brownie and lemon tart...with cherry sorbet for dessert (cherry sorbet was out of this world). Would definitely recommend everything we ate as it was all really tasty. Great find, will be returning and if it’s not on your list already then it should be! * should note, the lamb isn’t normally served with chips as in the picture I just asked for them to be switched in.More

Used to be one of my favourite restaurants, but on my last visit for a birthday lunch, I got severe food poisoning. I contacted them and initially they responded well but have since just stopped communicating. I was willing to overlook the experience as a...one off but so disappointed to be ignored, I felt it should be noted somewhere.More

Ate here 2 evenings running as a couple and then took family members back the next evening. The food was very good and service excellent on both occasions. The menu isn’t extensive but enough to satisfy most palate’s. Drinks are priced sensibly and there is...ample parking. We were told they do a Sunday lunch which is rammed and unfortunately we cannot try on this visit. Unfortunately it wasn’t busy on either evening and with the prices can’t understand why it was not full? Locals get there to support this place!More

This used to be an incredible sea food restaurant, but now has more of a general pub feeling menu. Has definitely gone down hill over the last 5/6 years. The same with the building itself in that it's been modernised and in a way lost...some of the charm. Food was ok, service ok, would say below average. The latest visit confirmed no longer a venue for a special occasion for me anywayMore

My husband, daughter and I had a excellent experience when we visited this restaurant for lunch last week, from the moment we were warmly welcomed at the door to the minute we were very cheerily wished goodbye when we left. The service throughout was a...delight and our food choices were all very tasty. My daughter and I had the sea bass and a very yummy dessert and my husband enjoyed his pork medallions and sticky toffee pudding.More

So disappointing, sent the steak back twice and it was raw each time. Left hungry. Service was good. But ended up paying a fair price for one person not to eat.

Haven't been to the Beech Tree since covid when we used to go a lot. Still great food but so sad to see it so quiet on a Fri eve. It's no more expensive than other places so please visit its a real gem just...past Culver House. Great waiter who was doing everything and you need to visit!More

Lovely food. Menu was simple but still plenty of choice. I had the halibut and prawn curry and it was excellent. Also good selection of wines and beers. Not a cheap place to eat but you get what you pay for.

We visited for lunch today, four of us. Really, really cold, when I mentioned this to manageress, she said they were waiting to get the heating fixed. We kept our coats on throughout the duration of our stay! Starters were quite good, calamari especially. Fish...and chips were not good, don't know how they could produce such heavy batter, left a great deal. The steak was not cooked well looking boiled rather than fried and when we mentioned that serving up food like that would not bring us back, the manageress said there was nothing she could do about that? REALLY! Unfortunately we will not return which is unfortunate as we line reasonably nearby. Not much one can say if staff think the food is acceptable, other than vote with ones feet.More

Post Covid things have not been as good in this restaurant but recently there has been a marked improvement especially in their Sunday lunches and service, I don't know what their mid week meals are like or whether they are under new management Definitely worth...a visit although there is still a need for further improvement. ,e,g . In varying their menu or offering weekly specials. Good spacious parking and pleasant seating outside in warm weatherMore

Enjoyed our Birthday meal at the Beach tree again this December. Both chose the Festive 3 course menu and it was really tasty. Turkey and all the trimmings. Restaurant warm and nicely decorated for Christmas and the staff were very welcoming and helpful.
