About The Yew Tree
The Yew Tree is a 19th century free house set in the idyllic village of Bunbury, near Tarporley, in the heart of the Cheshire countryside.
A regular home for locals, as well as those from further afield, the gem of a pub offers a warm welcome and a fabulous range of local cask ales as well as wines and spirits from around the world. The pub also offers delicious, locally sourced and home cooked foods to suit those looking for a memorable evening out or just a light bite.
We enjoyed our food, However, our table was in very close proximity to the door leading to the garden decking and also almost on top of the adjacent table. As a result, our meal was ruined by the over loud party on the next table (one occupant was almost sitting at the side of me ) and the continuously flapping exertanal door as customers came in and went out. Fortunately it was a mild night. The table was slightly rocky and the conversation was definitely not helped by a ginormous candle hurricane lamp situated in the middle of the table. Conversation was almost impossible anyway due to our over loud companions on the next table. I can think of better ways of spending £124. Will we go again, I doubt it.!!
Very friendly. Many of the meals were not available due to failed delivery
Lovely birthday meal.Great food and warm welcoming staff. We will be coming back soon.
A great Sunday lunch
Long time since last visit but will come again. Menu has more than the usual 'pub' fare.
Fabulous! Best roast in a pub/restaurant I've had in a very long time- will be returning
A very enjoyable evening with lovely food and service. Thank you
Good food, would like to see liver back on the menu!
We had a very enjoyable evening.
The menu and the food was pretty good, we enjoyed that. But the service other than the fact we didn't have to wait too long for the food was terrible. No one came and checked everything was alright. GIn and tonic was served with the whole bottle of tonic poured in without asking. The wine was brought to the table opened. Should never happen and always be opened at the table in front of the customer. We had to clear our plates on to another table as we were so fed up of them being left. No one asked or offered dessert menus. No one asked us if we wanted anymore drinks at anytime in the evening. If that is the way they want to run this establishment with the customer constantly going to the bar, and no members of staff interacting, then I'm afraid you can't be charging those sort of prices, there are too many good places around. It's a shame as the food was good. We went to see what it was like with new management, we won't be rushing back.
Portions were a bit on the small side and the price point possibly a bit high, quality was good. Staff were excellent.
First time back since the change of owner. Sat in beer garden, good atmosphere and food was excellent. Staff were great
Glad to see the Yew Tree is getting back on track
Lovely relaxing afternoon celebrating Father's Day with my family. Food and drink were excellent and so was the service. Great range of vegetarian meal options which you don't usually get at other local pub-diners.
I enjoyed the lunch. It being a Monday, the Yew Tree was quiet. This suited me as I had chosen the Yew Tree for a family meeting with my mum, my cousin and her father. Consequently,there were two people who are hard of hearing and the quiet was just what we needed for conversation and 'catch-up'. The meals had mixed reviews: I enjoyed my fish and chips, came just as I like them. I'm afraid that my mum made a bad choice with the Bunbury burger, especially as she said that it was stone cold (she added that the chips were 'fatty' - though me and my cousin's dad were quite happy with them). The two other takers for the burger seemed reasonably content, though one did not like the bacon. They all thought that the kimshi was an affectation.
Absolutely top class meal , waitress was lovely and we were made to feel welcome and at home! Highly recommend
Attractive pub in a very pretty village. Friendly staff, good service, good food.
Chips had obviously been cooked a long time previously, they were not crispy. The curry had no taste and the naan was so hard it was inedible. This was mentioned to the waitress who ignored it! The mushy peas were lukewarm
Great beer and food. Thank you.
Good to see the pub full of life again.
Lovely meal in great surroundings.
Beer was in poor condition with 2 different beers cloudy. Staff behind bar were not informative about beer quality and poor on service. (I appreciate they may very well have been new in their role). Waitress was asked about one dish and we were told something completely different as to what the dish was.
The service from the young staff was excellent, possibly over enthusiastic. For example we were asked 3 times by different people if we were ready to order pudding. Might be better if each table was served by a single staff member. The food was good though not exceptional given the prices. Nothing wrong with any of it, but the mains in particular were a little unexciting. The highlight however was the Creme Brulee with rhubarb which was exceptional.
We sat by the door to the outside and it was in and out by either the waiter or people coming in from outside The door was a continuous bang bang bang.My friend and my roast beef dinner was disappointing,too rare to start with and very thick beef and fatty and tough.The fish and chips were good and my husband said his beef dinner was ok Would not rush back to have a meal .
