Called here on recommendations. It is marvellous. The main courses we had, half roast duck and Smoked Haddock, were just beautiful. The service was very good, the staff and owners being very welcoming, friendly and efficient. The pub has a lovely warm comfortable ambience and is reasonably dog friendly. We shall go again.

Honest,no frills, traditional pub food,huge portions & excellent value for money,It has hardly changed in years,lets hope it never does.The number of cars in their car park on a miserable weekday is an indication of how popular it remains.

Lovely old pub in great surroundings. Very quaint and interesting inside. We have never been here before, but saw a review and decided to give it a try for Sunday lunch. Large carpark which was busy as this pub obviously attracts locals and regulars. Many tables were reserved but we found a table in the bar area. One drawback is... More

Have been going to the Yew Tree for years. The food is excellent and the people are so friendly that they treat you as a family member. We go there every year with a great group of friends at Christmas and they do an excellent Christmas meal with all the trimmings at a great price. Would highly recommend this place... More

Came here for a Sunday lunch with friends. The village and surrounding area are lovely and interior of the pub is quaint. Value also okay, as was service. Disappointed with our food though. Nothing tasted bad but it was just like a plate of roast you'd get at your Gran's. Nice desserts however, and a very generous three scoops of... More

My grandparents were visiting so we thought we would bring them here as we have been here before. We arrived at 1410, went to the bar to order drinks. Once we had ordered the male behind the bar asked if we would be ordering food. We said yes to which he replied "right well you will have to hurry up... More
