“A lovely restaurant for special occasions or guests with discerning tastes”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

The four of us enjoyed a very good meal with courses that showed some imagination and were perfectly cooked. The perfect panacotta deserved special mention! The upstairs room we ate in was light and surprisingly spacious, possibly because they didn't cram the tables together. Staff were helpful cheerful and courteous. Although not cheap the quality of the food did not disappoint and was worth the price, especially as restaurants of this calibre seem to be in short supply in this area.

I've finally got to go to The Willow Tree, and it lived up to expectations.

“Book early and don't miss the desserts”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

This small restaurant in the centre of Taunton is very highly recommended. The size of the place makes reservations essential, but it's worth the wait. The service was attentive and helpful, without being over-bearing or intrusive. The riverside location and ambiance give the restaurant character, and the cooking puts it at the top of the local list. The cheese soufflé was as light and as imaginable, and the turbot cooked to perfection. The delight, however, was the dessert, and that comes from someone who usually avoids dessert on grounds of calorific intake. Both of us saw our desserts as the high point, so don't miss them.
