We went to The Willow tree as a party of 20 including a child and a toddler. The good and service was outstanding. They catered for my gluten free diet too.I had the roast beef and it was delicious. The staff were very attentive too. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The manager and his partner are very friendly... More

The food was not really up to scratch. Pleasant staff and surroundings and good beer but we won't rush back. Maybe it was an off day!

We visited the Willow Tree for a family celebration lunch. The staff made us feel very welcome and worked really hard to ensure everyone had an enjoyable time. The quality of the food is superb. We were given a choice of roasts and I hade the beef which was perfectly cooked. The vegetables and Yorkshire puds were equally scrummy. The... More

My husband and I popped into the Willow Tree after a rather wet shopping trip in the city. We were pleased to find a warming fire open fire and welcoming staff. We both ordered the burgers which were delicious, true American diner style! I have traveled all over the States, burger capital of the world and these definitely matched in... More

You failed to mention that we had to call the police, your behaviour was deplorable and you are now on Pubwatch. It goes without saying, that you are barred for life. More

Want to say thank you to Julian the landlord and all the staff at the The Willow Tree, Winchester for a Fabulous evening celebrating my retirement. Contacted Julian several months before venue. He was so accommodating and helpful and always got straight back to me. I had over 40 people and took over the restaurant, we had a hot buffet... More

i had not eaten here before but a friend chose it. I asked for a pineapple juice which they didn't have. There were only 6 other people in the whole pub, however we both ordered the cheeseburger and chips. It arrived and to our surprise was served up in cheap red plastic baskets which at £13.50 for a burger you... More

Thanks for your feedback, we did check on you to see if everything was alright, to which you said it was. Fries are stated on the menu and chips are available. Over salting is not our intention, neither is not supplying sufficient condiments, not a request refused, if asked. I guess the American diner baskets could be a bad idea,... More

We had an excellent meal. There was a new chef and the food was very good and plenty of it. The starter we shared was the charcuterie which was plentiful with a good salad and dressing. My salmon was cooked perfectly and my partners halluomi & mushroom burger with perfectly cooked French fries and a generous plateful of food which... More

No one goes out to lunch or dinner with the intention of not having a good time. But when one thing after the other isn’t right, you do find yourself a bit more critical than normal. Finding a parking directly outside the pub was a good start. My partner and I were meeting friends there for lunch. They arrived at... More
