Always busy due to the quality of the food and excellent staff. The Family Tree is the hub of the local community, but if you can get a table, you won’t be disappointed. Excellent value for money.

When visiting this place with friends i was hugely disappointed in the poor service we received. It was very slow, our teas and coffees came out at different times with grubby glasses and tea cups. Looked like the staff did not want to be there...More

Sorted out a large party of 11 at short notice on a BH for 63rd wedding anniversary, the food was all healthy freshly prepared and a nice antidote to chain pub fare, thanks

It as the first time we'd been there for afternoon tea but having had lunch there several times, we took some older relatives there for afternoon tea and it was excellent. We couldn't have asked for better.
