5 of us celebrated my mother-in-law's 70th Birthday here. Booked having read the reviews and we were not disappointed. Everything was perfect. The food was delicious and the staff lovely. In my initial enquiry I had mentioned that it was to celebrate a special birthday and the dessert came complete with 'Happy 70th Birthday' in edible writing and a candle!... More

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.

Thank Lyall C
