“Fabulous lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

Four of us had lunch and all agreed it was excellent. They do a 2 course for £12 and a 3 course for £15. The food was superb, the atmosphere relaxing and the service first class.

“First visit under the new management”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

My husband and I went to the Yew Tree yesterday to have our first meal under the new management. We had a really nice Sunday roast dinner, a real cut above anything we have had there under prior managements. I am looking forward to trying their weekday menu as well! There are minor kinks to work out, as in any new place shortly after opening, but there is real promise there! I hope all the residents of our community will support the Yew Tree with their business and keep our local pub/restaurant/inn up and running! It's so nice to see the doors open and lights on again, with good food and drink, and a cozy place for our out-of-town guests to stay!

“Under new management”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2014

Our local has had more makeovers since we've lived here than Kerry Katona. It's latest guise is a very nicely turned out restaurant pub which by our experience today on day two of its opening augurs well. Manuden is a pretty village with a location handy for Stansted and Bishop's Stortford. Its residents are notoriously hard to please and often downright rude but this gem of a pub has good beers a sensible menu and is family run and managed. Lunchtime steak sandwich and salmon sandwich was our choice with a skinny chips and a tomato and cucumber salad washed down with Yardbird ale and a Chilean Sauvignon Blanc - all good which was echoed by our fellow diners. We'll be back again shortly to try their evening menu but for now, well done - a good solid start. Photos attached

“Under new Management, lots of new events, worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2013

I have been meaning to go back down to the Yew Tree again. Last time I visited in November, it was under new management. I had seen this in the local parish magazine. The new managers seem very friendly and social. Recently they have been advertising Acoustic nights on the first Friday of every month. Their first evening was rammed and highly popular. This pub has suffered from poor trade in the past and before that poor management. It is smashing to see a couple behind it who are giving it their best shot. I would highly recommend giving The Yew Tree a go. I have never stayed there or tried the food, but I did receive a very warm welcome as a drinker.
