|Lovely pub in a quaint village. Mainly foody with two small bar areas for drinking. We sat out the front and watched the world stroll by. Beautiful.|

|We reluctantly visited again yesterday evening as we had a local appointment. Much to our surprise it was a much better visit than our previous one last August. The staff were friendly and efficient and could add up. The beers (Harveys and Long Man) were in good nick and both our meals were very good traditional pub nosh. The place was packed and most tables were pre-booked, which I really hate having to do to go out to a pub. Other similar food orientated pubs seem to thrive without booking out all of the tables to diners.|

|It amazes me the things people find fault with. If you want a dining experience then go to a restaurant, if you want good food and a decent portion then you canít beat the value at The Yew Tree.|
In particular the hot food comes hot, which is a novelty in itself.
If you donít want the dollop of cole slaw or red cabbage, then mention it when ordering. Just ask for some other salad instead. I do.
Yes, it can be a little cramped, but it adds to the atmosphere of this old style country pub, or ask to be sat in the conservatory, but book up in advance if you can.

|I have visited the Yew Tree a couple of times and have no idea why anyone should think it may be a gastro pub. It is a typical British pub that serves good beer and food, which, in the main, is of the plainer variety. That is what the British pub was all about, the very thought of public houses being gastro is to me ridiculous. If I want upmarket dining then a go to a fine dining restaurant not my local.|
As said the beer and food are good, not sensational, but represents very good value for money. On that basis I would recommend it to anyone. If I have a complaint (observation really) it is that the portions are too large, but that is simply my opinion.

|We arrived today for our first visit to this popular local just on 12:00. Within 20 minutes the pub was full mainly of people somewhat older than us and I am nearly 60. The service was prompt although the barmaid had to add up our two drinks using a notepad! The same barmaid also had the same difficulty when I ordered the lunches.|
My lunch arrived a little while later but my wife's was about 5 minutes behind mine, the reason was not explained to us and we did not receive an apology. My food was good but my wife had the king prawn platter, which only appeared to have 2 king prawns on it, the rest being the cheaper tiger prawns and bog standard frozen ones. The dish was padded out with copious amounts of salad including bought in coleslaw. All a bit much for £11.95.
We were sat at a table laid up for 4 but I couldn't see how four people could eat at the table without spilling their lunch over each other's plate.
Overall a disappointing visit and we do not intend to return unless we have to, although, inability to add up aside, the staff were efficient and friendly enough.
