“Fantastic food”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

Trees restaurant is on the first floor of the Townhouse Hotel. My wife and myself had most of our breakfasts there and also most of our evening meals. The only times we missed out were when we were on tours away from the hotel. The service was good and the food was excellent. It was plentiful, well presented and tasted good.

“Trip to Trees”
Reviewed 12 September 2012

Trees Restaurant is situated on the first floor of The Townhouse Hotel. This hotel caters for business people and due to its proximity to Parliament it is usually busy. The restaurant can be quiet, with a number of solo business diners, or couples, however it is laid out and divided in such a way that it doesn't feel empty The restaurant is warm and comfortably furnished in a contemporary style. The tables by the windows are so close to trees outside, its a little like being in a tree-house. There is also a trendy gas-fire which is lit and welcoming all the time. We had the 'grill special' which is steak, veg or starch with a glass of wine. A selection of fresh breads and butter was offered before our delicious main of rump steak with shoestring fries and a selection of fresh vegetables arrived as ordered. My generous glass of Haute Cabriere Pinot Noir was a delight and I was very impressed that a wine of this calibre be served in a 'special'. Overall the service is so friendly, welcoming and warm. The staff doesn't change that often, always a good sign and their attitude is so pleasant it really makes one want to make a return visit.

“Slow Service”
Reviewed 20 April 2012

I stayed at this hotel and couldn't be bothered to go out.
I was dissapointed with my meal. It was cold and took ages to arrive. The restaurant wasn't busy unless it was for inhouse diners.
Lovely views of the tree's close by but the staff seem to always seat you somewhere else...!
My waiter didn't charge me as he agreed my meal took too long to arrive. I guess that's a plus!

“Hidden gem with tasty food”
Reviewed 18 November 2011

Trees is located inside the Townhouse Hotel. I think Trees only opened up last year at some point. It is beautiful inside with big windows all around, allowing for nice street views. The kitchen is open, so you can almost watch the chefs prepare each meal. The food presentation is beautifully done. The food in general is tasty and the portions is plentiful. Waiters are professional and friendly. Overall a good meal and ambiance. Do not be put off by the location. Trees is well worth a visit for an affordable and tasty meal.
