Description: Idyllically nestled in the Chiltern Hills amongst some of the most beautiful beech woods in England, sits this most pretty and picturesque English country pub with rooms. The Cherry Tree Inn is a 500 year old brick and flint building that was formerly 3 cottages. Now, a thriving, bustling quintessential English country pub and inn, it has had a huge lease of life since its new owners gave it a makeover in February 2012. Whilst keeping its gorgeous traditional interior, with original flagstone floors, heavy beams and low ceilings, they have also brought it right up to the 20th century with innovative design, interiors, colours and overall excellent service. The rooms are set in a lovely barn conversion next to the pub and with its four ensuite AA 4* letting rooms with king size beds and clean, crisp linens, it's perfect for both private or corporate needs. Breakfasts are hearty and guests are assured of a peaceful nights sleep in beautiful surroundings. The food is right up there with some of the best in the area. Modern British classics, meets some favourite European treats and all food is cooked fresh, to order and using only the freshest, where possible local ingredients from both local suppliers and some of the many estates producing some outstanding meats. The wine list is pretty healthy too, with Bury Brothers & Rudd supplying a lot of their wines. Likewise, they have a great selection of champagnes, the beer is very well kept with mainly the local Brakspears on tap and a good selection bottled beers, spirits and liqueurs. Just 6 miles west of glorious Henley on Thames and surrounded by some of the best walking, cycling and riding territory you'll find, it's firmly on the 'Destination Pub' radar, as well as being loved and supported by the local area.

I should start by saying that I don't make a habit of reviewing places on tripadvisor but I do make a habit of reading reviews of places I have been; it's interesting to see what others think. Yet having now read some of the more recent comments, I feel somewhat obliged to put them to rights.

I have been to the Cherry Tree a number of times. My wife and I like to pop in occasionally when we don't feel like cooking.The food is always great and the service nothing but friendly. It's a relaxed country pub and doesn't try to be anything more.

Today I came with a group, seven of us, for Easter lunch. Terrific menu topped off with some really great desserts. The brandy snaps were exquisitely presented and in short we all had a great time.

One other thing worth mentioning is the efforts made to welcome children/families/animals. Today there was an Easter egg hunt for the children in the pub. A nice touch I thought. And how pleasant to see dogs allowed to curl up by the fire.

A proper English pub and not one to overlook.

Only average for what looked like a great place. Puddings most disappointing. Waiting staff very well meaning and friendly but lacked management.

Title says it all. It's an oldie world place. The food is traditional pub fayre, done really well. The service was good, friendly too, and that was everyone who we spoke to.

We went during winter, but there's a big garden to enjoy and a decent size car park.

It get's busy, so it's wise to call first.

Great restaurant with super friendly staff, great food and lovely atmosphere. Went with a four week old baby and the staff was very accommodating so have been back several times since with different visitors and everyone always enjoys it. Would love to sit outside in the summer - lovely spot.
