Our 1st visit here for a very rare date night. I have a hazelnut allergy and ordered the brioche bread pudding for dessert. The menu stated brioche custard and vanilla ice cream however it arrived with chocolate in the brioche. Experience has given me the knowledge that generally this is a nutella style chocolate. I asked the waitress to check but when she came back to me she was very unsure so i asked her to double check. On her return she was still very unclear and I asked clearly again did it have hazelnuts in it and her reply was no......I don't think so. I decided not to eat my dessert due to the uncertainty but my husband did. I'm not sure how the kitchen staff couldn't clarify if it did infact have hazelnuts in it or not if all your desserts are home made as stated on the menu? I also feel the waitress might need a little more training on allergens and ingredients and are able to locate this information in a speedy and accurate fashion.I did bring this up when we came to settle the bill and pointed out the menu needed to be more clearer as if it had been I would of checked tyr ingredients before ordering. The gentleman did agree and also said they couldn't guarantee no hazelnut traces of which I tried to explain I wasn't asking for that but did it infact contain hazelnuts. The gentleman immediately offered to take the dessert off our bill which was very kind but as my husband had eaten the dessert we felt it was only right we paid for it. Aside from this we thoroughly enjoyed our date night and will return. Kind regards Sam & Kevin Belben.

We eat out a lot and we really did have a lovley new here. The device was impeccable, the welcome was warm, the speed of things was brilliant. The food was delicious. My only constructive critique would be to train all staff on the wine list. The young waitress who served us didn’t know the wine list when we asked

We enjoyed our meal: it was clearly excellent value with 50% off food. The food was good, and service was pleasant and efficient.

It’s a real shame that the offer of 50% off all food in January was put in place after the ridiculous price rise on the menu. I’m sure this is because it’s supposed to draw people in but in reality you aren’t saving much. In fact I’ve been twice in January and the price of the steaks rose by £4 in a two week period. Staff were slow to take orders and generally a couple of staff were frosty. I’m not sure how it’s possible to keep pear crunchy in a crumble and with it being chopped so finely I’m truly amazed. Oh and the mussels were out of stock by 7.45 on a Saturday evening, which is just a gripe as I’m sure it’s a popular option.

We went when there was a 50% offer on so it was good value. I don’t think I could justify paying full price for a pub style meal. The food was very nice, but the vegetables especially were delicious - I could have eaten just them without the meat! Would like to see a wider wine choice on the menu as the bottle I would like to have chosen was £60 - a bit pricey mid week! I have previously tried two other of my typical style wine but have not been impressed with them.

Very busy night but the staff were fabulous. Six empty plates ... food was great, especially my sons steak. It is one of my local pubs and we visit often and will continue to do so. Keep up the good work Yew Tree Team.

I was disappointed with the standard of food. The pork which was supposed to be slow cooked shoulder was very gristly and of a poor quality. I will not be returning.

Met up with friends for a pre-Christmas lunch. We were really pleased that the Yew Tree has re-opened ( unfortunately we don't live nearby) and we will certainly meet up there again............our friends will be with us and also our relatives !! Restaurant or a less formal setting offered plus real fires if you want them. The new host (they had only had the place 4 weeks) was good to talk to after the meal. Plenty of choice to suit all. Would recommend...give it a try.
