Unbelievably within two months of opening this completely refurbished family owned and run pub in a chic modern style manages to regularly get booked out at weekends. This is despite deliberately not advertising and allowing their reputation to spread by word of mouth. True, they had a few teething problems in December but are now flexing themselves and providing a very warm welcome and some excellent food. We have been there virtually every week since they opened and have yet to be disappointed by the menu. They also have regular theme nights which are always full.
This pub may not appeal to traditionalists but it is family friendly, and the kitchen will always try and accommodate a special request. Absolutely no boil in the bag here! Greene King IPA and Olde Trip on tap plus many lagers including excellent draft Peroni. Starting to become a firm favourite with the more discerning locals.

Having lived in the local area for a very long time, I have seen the tenants come and go at this establishment. The previous tenants did have alot of bother with the place and got a lot of stick.
As mentioned in other posts, the pub has re-opened since months of being shut.
I think the first mistake here was the complete lack of advertising that the pub was indeed opening, was newly refurbished and had some new and interested tenants.
The new refurb is different. The pub certainly has lost its village charm and it now looks far more modern and sophisticated. For me this is not too much of a problem. � It is nice to have one place which bucks the trend.

I have visited a good few times since the unannounced re-opening and I am quite concerned that there don�t often seem to be many customers in there. Also the blinds for the windows are always down so for passing motorists or people, it looks almost as though the pub is shut. This evening was the first time I noticed that the blinds had been wound up a little so you could see the place was actually open.
I believe since my last visit, the kitchen is now up and running, so they are now doing food.

I would recommend this place, but I personally only visit with friends once every so often.

The Yew Tree has re-opened after a refit and is very disappointing. You are not made to feel welcome, it has lost ALL the character of a country pub and feels like a deserted town bar (it is very quiet and unadvertised!) Very upsetting to have lost a pub that could have been a friendly local.

What can I say! Rude owner, when he eventually moved from the games machine to the bar to serve me. The shelves were lined with dust and the glasses looked as though they had only been rinsed, covered in smears and lipstick. The bar floor was dirty with bottletops gathered in the corners. Although the pub was empty there were still empty glasses and plates on the tables from lunch time. I would NEVER recommend this place. With new professional owners this COULD be an nice place BUT as it is, it is one to avoid!
