Been to The Elm Tree quite a few times now for both food and beers. Both always excellent, delivered by very welcoming, friendly and proactive staff. Always an excellent experience. Went last night for a Christmas function....high standards maintained throughout with excellent attention to detail. Highly recommended.

This has become one of our favourite restaurants to go to. The food is always spot on, staff are friendly and the atmosphere is great. Highly recommended for couples, families and friends! Just make sure to book as this place gets full, but that's understandable after you have tried it yourself :-)

The staff are very efficient and friendly. The food is good and nicely presented. However my only problem is that there is not much choice for Vegetarians and definitely very little for Vegan choice. However everyone else was very pleased and enjoyed their meals.

Chose the Elm Tree because of its location and its good reviews. We were not disappointed. Jim and his team give you a very warm welcome on arrival. There is a lovely atmosphere; busy but not heaving plus a roaring fire and good range of gins. There was plenty of choice on the menu and the food was delicious and... More

The lunch today was fantastic! I have eaten here many times now. The Xmas menu looks great so I've booked it for my company party. Staff are polite and couldn't be more helpful when you have a little one with you. Well done and thank you.

We revisited The Elm Tree last Saturday evening and it was just as good as the first visit. Nice and cosy with candles everywhere around the restaurant. Friendly attentive service and the food was excellent. Good pricing and no service charge. Would recommend for a nice evening out.

Great food, friendly staff, lovely location. We've just had a fantastic Sunday lunch with great roasts, burgers and a cold meat board. We can heartily recommend this for anyone from kids to oldies - first class!
