Visited while away in Bournemouth, the food was outstanding & reasonably priced. Plent of vegetarian options but I recommend the Moving Mountains burger. The waitress, Tracey was amazing & a credit to the pub. Will definitely visit again x

We booked the Tithe Barn for our daughter’s wedding reception. We met with Natalie 10 days beforehand to firm up all the arrangements. Whilst the venue accommodates 50 - 60 guests comfortably, my daughter had 74 attending. Natalie and Chad were fantastic in looking at...alternatives so that all guests could attend, with a marquee extension that complemented the barn setting and seated 20 guests. The buffet selection was excellent and plentiful, with a great choice, meeting dietary needs and staff attentive. Natalie went above and beyond and even came in on her day off to ensure that everything went to plan, met our expectations and even took on the Master of Ceremony’s role. We highly recommend this venue and the staff, who do their utmost to meet your expectations and ensure that everything goes smoothly. A thoroughly enjoyable and memorable evening for all the right reasons.More

Pie and mash was perfect on a sunny Easter weekend evening. Service from Luke was great, perfect balance of helpful and genuine. Proper pub - please don’t change a thing! If we had been earlier could have enjoyed the beer garden. ‘

Visited for a sour of the moment lunch. Food very good, though doubted if lasagne was meat tasted more like quorn or meat substitute this didn’t detract from the taste. Nothing was too much trouble and staff attending our table Kira (no idea of spelling...sorry) and Luke very accommodating to a very hungry 2 year old.More

We hired the Tithe Barn at The Elm Tree for our daughters 21st birthday party. What a fabulous, pretty and reasonably priced venue! Despite already having held a function during the day, the room was ready for us in the evening and Chad and his...team couldn’t have been more helpful! A great time was had by all!More

As our local pub we thought we would give it a go for lunch. Despite new management and some degree of expectation, sadly there is no improvement. The food we chose today could not be any less imaginative. It was unappetising to look at and...equally as bland to eat. We will not be back for a while.More

We booked for Sunday lunch (table for 9). All but two had the Carvery. Now I know there had been complaints because it was cold.(actually one of the tables was quite rude, no need for that) Ok they had forgotten to turn on the chaffing...dishes,, accidents like that happen. so the food wasn't hot , BUT It was very tasty we all ate it, the manager was very apologetic offering fresh food or free desserts which we declined. (we were full) Our daughter, son in law ( managers of a pub/hotel) and other son (chef) are all in hospitality so we know it wasn't on purpose and how bad you feel when your food isn't upto scratch. We will definitely visit again, because the food, staff and actual pub is lovely.More

Booked this a couple of weeks ago, with the aim to eat on the return journey home after a weekend celebrating our wedding anniversary. Told the waitress we would have the carvery and she gave us two tickets, but whilst we were queuing heard that...a couple had complained and had a refund, not clear for what though. However it was soon to become clear. Meat was served and then I tucked into adding my vegetables to my plate that looked good although, the counter was a little sparse and needed topping up. On return to the table my first mouthful was of a cold sprout! Not Luke warm or cool but cold! Only to find all the vegetables were cold and the cheese broccoli was solid. I complained to the manager who offered to cook something off the menu but declined …. But why o why let us order something from the carvery when it wasn’t fit to eat. Declined the offer for another meal and decided to call it quits and left after we had our drinks. Also could not believe the pub is affiliated to Greene King, the third time I have been disappointed by a Greene King business in under six months.More
