We've always like this restaurant when it was the Cherry Tree and have held many a special brithday/anniversary celebration there. So after having hearing some good reports about it we decided to give it a go for Sunday Lunch on Easter Sunday. We were blown away by the quality of the food and the service was impecable. I have to say this was the best Sunday lunch we've ever had. The portion sizes are very generous with a great selection of veg and plenty of gravy ! The only negative comment I would have is ditch the mash potatoe and give us more than two roast potatoes - as they were delicious !! The new deco is lovely and bright. An alround fabulous experience and I can't wait to try it out of an evening.

I visited with two friends for a meal and a catch up. The staff were friendly, attentive and chatty and the food was excellent. We were told that it was the first night that the executive chef had taken a night off since it opened and "Dan" was in charge in the kitchen. He did a fantastic job with the presentation of the food being first class and the taste to match, clearly a professional and passionate chef! Puddings were the best we had ever had and the food was very reasonably priced. The fact that it was busy on a Tuesday night is testament to the quality of the restaurant. Would return in a heartbeat!

Had very high expectations of this restaurant ever since the one in Ponteland opened and it did not disappoint! We had the 5 course taster and every single course was faultless (we were worried in the case the portions were tiny but we couldn’t even finish it all) it is great value for money. The service was brilliant from the second you walked through the door with all staff members making you feel welcome and all very friendly and informative both on drinks recommendations and food, not just our server (Lucy) who was excellent in giving recommendations, very friendly and attentive. Not the mention the special dessert given to us courtesy of the chefs for a birthday celebration! The food tasted incredible and the attention to detail on presentation was also amazing. We will be recommending to everyone and will definitely be back!

The service in this restaurant was excellent. Food was also good except for one of our party who found the wagyu lasagna overly sweet. All other dishes were beautifully presented and tasty. We will definitely be back!
