Three of us enjoyed a sublime Christmas lunch today at The Willow Tree. As usual the food was excellent, wonderful flavours and presentation. The service was friendly and helpful. It was so nice to know we didn't have to clear away and was up afterwards!

Our most recent visit to The Willow Tree was for their special offer for Thursday nights in December, three courses for £24.95. The food at this restaurant is fabulous! You need to book as it's not big. The staff and the ambiance are super. Well worth a visit.
