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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Superb food and service. I took 3 friends and a dog for a post walk lunch. We all chose from the early bird menu. We opted for starters, pate, scotch egg, and calamari, followed by cheese and onion pie for 3 of us and salmon...for the other. Every mouthful was delicious and we all cleared our plates although we were all full. We couldn't resist trying Rachel's homemade cheese cake which is an absolute must!! Three courses, a round of drinks followed by coffees all for less than £100. Quality food and extremely good value.More

We had our annual Christmas outing here. The seating didn't make us feel part of a group. The food was poor and the "entertainment" was a DJ. All in all a very disappointing visit.

Hi Allyson . I’m really sorry you were disappointed with your visit to the restaurant. I really wish you would have mentioned something on the night and I would have tried to find solutions to make it a more pleasurable evening. Xx

Once again a great meal at the Cedar Tree. Cheese & onion pie never disappoints & the Prawn & Pepper skewers were delicious. We always say we won’t manage a dessert but once again we had to try the chocolate fudge cake and Rachel’s Homemade...cheesecake.

Came here last night after reading the great reviews, really wish we hadn’t. Food was dreadful. Scotch egg starter, cold in the middle, egg was hard boiled, not runny. Veg soup was okay Chicken skewer was awful. The chicken didn’t smell good, wife left it....Rump steak was shocking. Load of fat and gristle left on the meat, tasted like old boots, a real cheap cut of meat. Genuinely believe these reviews are fake as our food was not good, a bad experienceMore
