“Great Food, Excellent Service.”
Reviewed 3 November 2012

We have had several meals at The Fir Tree, all excellent value, freshly cooked veg, home made chips, steak night every Thursday. Sunday lunches absolutely beautiful. Mark and Chris are always hands on, and ensure good service along with their staff who are always, polite, efficient, and nothing is too much bother for them. Great Food, Great Service, Great Staff, Great Pub.

“Fantastic Food and Excellent Value”
Reviewed 24 August 2012

We have eaten at several local venues - evening meals - Sunday Lunches etc. and find this venue well worth a visit and repeat visits. The propietors Mark & Chris are 'hands on' nothing is too much trouble and their staff are as equally accomodating. Every meal has been 'excellent' all fresh vegetables, the meat/steaks all beautifully tender and the deserts all being home made are 'out of this world'. The Banoffe cheese cake is well worth a visit!! They have recently taken over the venue and appearance and cleanliness has improved considerably. A lot of new additions have been very tastfully done to suit the local sorroundings. Well done to both of you and will be back on a regular basis!!

“wedding luncheon”
Reviewed 30 July 2012

We booked this venue prior to the new owners taking over in ? July 2012. our wedding party was small and private for 40 guests and this was specific to the bride and grooms request.
nothing was too much trouble for Mark & Chris and their staff. the room, food and service were excellent. our guests raved about the attention to detail. As their are also en-suite rooms available at an excellent price we were able to accommodate guests their as well.

I would strongly recommend this hotel for parties, celebrations of any kind plus their excellent food
