No pub d├ęcor and a poor drinks' choice - Doom Bar or Pride, poorly kept.

Agree with the reviewer below: this is more like an upmarket Harvester for the nouveau riche and it's miles from anywhere.

This place has alot of potential and from the outside you would expect the food and service to be of very good quality. Unfortunately it just isn't.

Last night I had dinner there with some friends. Our waitress was friendly, despite having very limited knowledge of the menu. However, the server that was assisting her was consistently rude, saying more than once 'oh yes we don't have that item available, normally we do'. Oddly after he said they didn't do fresh mint teas, he then served us desert with quite a lot of fresh mint as a garnish. Should I simply have ordered hot water? He also made a mistake in calculating our bill. He didn't bother to explain what that mistake was and ended up charging us for something else. When we said he needed to explain to us the change before taking our money he ignored us. When we asked if he'd heard us, he said 'yes' and shrugged, he wasn't really too worried.

Aside from the poor service, the menu didn't clearly reflect what you were actually getting, ie my lemon chicken was covered with garlic mayonnaise, not mentioned in the menu.

Additionally there wasn't a healthy alternative to frites other than mash that has lashings of butter and cream. I did ask for the cabbage, leeks and peas. There were no leeks or peas, just cabbage swimming in butter. Also one of my friends ordered the Lemon Posset which was runny and lumpy.

Overall very disappointing. Personally, I would rather spend my money at some of the other gastro pubs in the area. There are a number of really good ones.

In its drinks menu, the Orange Tree talks about the importance of real ale and having a decent selection...
And when I got to the bar I found Pride and Old Speckled Hen on tap. Not the most exciting selection really.
Staff were friendly and attentive, so would disagree with previous comments, but it's definitely not somewhere I would return in a hurry.
Food was okay but expensive, and the menu pretentious - frites instead of chips, and we had to get the staff to explain what a couple of things were on the menu. Not something you should expect to happen in a boozer.
Starters average, mains much better and, to their credit, decent-sized portions (this from someone who will happily chow down a whole 500g bag of pasta on occasions, so read into that what you will), but not enough to entice me to return.
Way too far out to be convenient, which is a shame, as given the location, the pond and large beer garden outside, and the pleasantish interior, it could be a really decent pub.

Yup. Just another old boring second-rate foodie outlet.
How the mighty have fallen.

Not somewhere you feel wlecome unless you are eating. At least during the Summer you can take your pint outside.
