This is a cracking bar /bistro for food drink warmth and attentive staff
Carvery is fair, but restaurant is good honest pub grub
Parking is easy

Hi there Anthony,

Thank you for the vote of confidence in some many areas, however, I urge you to try our carvery on another occasion as I definitely think it merits more than 'fair'.

Warm regards,
Derek

If you are down around glounthorne area and you are hungry you cannot pass The Elm Tree bar and restaurant.You have a great selection of food from carvery to a full menu of exquisite food and the desserts are to die for.Its decor is beautifull and you should see it at Christmas with its huge Christmas trees and giant toy soldiers just amazing.My family also had a confirmation meal here and we had a cornered off area on the other side of the restaurant for my grandsons christening.Its well worth a visit.

The food was the nicest I have had in a long time and we can’t wait to return.
Great value, food and service.

Went here for a family birthday and was very disappointed The staff ignored us at our table and were extremely slow at clearing/ taking orders They got 2 orders wrong at our table and were not apologetic Staff were rude and ignorant There were no balloons on the table and they did not sing happy birthday even though we rang in advance and arranged this Managers unprofessional when approached and full of excuses Very immature behavior and staff staring at our table as if we were an inconvenience to them Food over priced, over rated and nothing to rage about Won’t be going back here and certainly would not recomend

a little off the main road, but well worth finding, really fabulous decor and quality feel to the restaurant. We arrived at 3pm so missed the lunch menu. We ordered from the a la carte menu, was a bit pricey but food was excellent, steaks, seafood and chicken, really enjoyable. Staff very friendly and helpful, comfortable seating and beautiful decor. will be back.
