A warm and friendly welcome by staff who also were both helpful and attentive to our needs The menu, whilst not extensive gave plenty of scope particularly for the children in the party Service fell off slightly for the sweet course, but given it was mid afternoon on a Sunday this was to be expected in a full restaurant Booking...

Lunch time meal and loved it! Tried the fish Friday menu ie choose your fish, how you'd like it cooked, sauces or butters and then a side. My cod was pan fried beautifully, served with caper butter and sides of a salad and sweet potato fries. Really good food, good size portion and all served with a smile and a... More

A good place to meet friends as its easy to find.. Had a really exceptional meal, our ladies chose the Pot Roast Chicken and my friend and I the Stuffed Pork Belly. For puddings here you cannot beat the Sticky Toffee Pudding. Service is how it should be from excellent staff I cannot fault this Pub/Restaurant.

The Orange Tree hosted a great Berns Night with all the trimmings .. The haggis was piped in an then addressed by a Piper in full uniform. The highland dancers performed well and the nip of whisky is always a favorite. The food was excellent and the service was always with a smile. Perfect.

We booked an 'informal' social event at the OT for about 30 of us, with no planned food, just a few drinks with friends and the option of light dinner if wanted by the individuals.
