The Yew Tree is on a bend of the A217 north of Reigate, near where the Pilgrims Way crosses the road at the foot of the North Downs. It is also handy for those on the North Downs Way at the top of Reigate Hill (though walkers have to descend the hill to get there). A group of us in the local U3A walking group called in for a snack lunch after a morning on the Downs. There was an accommodating welcome, starting with a stack of plastic overshoes for those with muddy boots, and a ready willingness to pull tables together to seat us close to the bar. We found a good range of "Light Bites" in the range £6.45 to £8.75. The rump steak ciabatta, liver burger and chips, and BLT bloomer all more than passed muster, though the soup could have been hotter. The draught beers were Doom Bar, Young's Bitter and Hogs Back T.E.A. Handy pubs are few and far between on this section of the east-west North Downs/Pilgrim's Way routes, and the Yew Tree did not have the beer mug mark on the 2005 edition of OS Explorer 1:25,000 Sheet 146 I was using. So for any readers interested in marking it up, the GR is TQ 256518. Cannot speak for the restaurant, but for us the early lunchtime bar offering was very good, which must promise well.

Food was well thought out and prepared... delicious. A quiet, calm atmosphere with a pleasant decor and pub garden. Service was warm and welcoming. Would definitely recommend!

The restaurant helped me to plan a surprise 80th birthday lunch for my father. We had 25 guests and everyone was delighted with the ambience, the food and in particular the service. Nothing was too much trouble, everything was brought promptly (eg. jugs of water, which I always feel is indicative of a well-run establishment). We weren't hurried, my dad was made to feel very special and all in all I was thrilled with the whole occasion. Thank you Yew tree. You gave us a day to remember!

We enjoyed a very good meal with a family of 4 (2 teenagers & 2 adults), had drink in the relaxed bar area first and then seated at a comfortable table.

The service was great, we asked for a few things to be altered from menu and they were so accommodating.

The food quality was good.

Will return again

As a family spread out across the SE this is an ideal central location. The food here is superb and importantly so is the service and the management. We have now been several times and they remember our likes / dislikes / prefernces - nothing is too much trouble. No one hurries you to leave the table, and the food is all fresh and freshly prepared.
