Not been in for a while, new chef produced first class meal. The French Onion Soup and the Hake as a main were very good indeed. The prices are good for central Winchester. Very pleasant front if House staff , who are also new in post.

Visited on a Saturday night to find an empty restaurant. For some reason we were sat in the darkest corner furthest from the bar, we needed more than a tea light on the table to brighten the place up! Menu was very limited but the food was good although nobody bothered to check if we enjoyed it. Worst thing was... More

This is our third bad review from you and I'm guessing it's a little late to try and make you happy but we would love to try in the future. Call backs, especially when it's quiet should be made and for that I apologise. Glad you enjoyed the food. When it's quiet the atmosphere can seem a little lacklustre. I... More

The interior is quirky and quaint, and it has an open fire. I hear the food is excellent and they have a reasonably priced Sunday lunch, but this review is just to rate the ale. I has a couple of different pints here which were well kept but over-priced.

The food was not really up to scratch. Pleasant staff and surroundings and good beer but we won't rush back. Maybe it was an off day!

Feedback is important us and I am sorry to hear about the food. A little more detail would be great to help us find out where we went wrong, either in person at the time or here. I'm glad you liked the staff and the surroundings. Please do come and try us again and thank you for your review. More

We visited the Willow Tree for a family celebration lunch. The staff made us feel very welcome and worked really hard to ensure everyone had an enjoyable time. The quality of the food is superb. We were given a choice of roasts and I hade the beef which was perfectly cooked. The vegetables and Yorkshire puds were equally scrummy. The... More
