Delightful cafe, ideal place for a homemade cake & a cuppa, or a delicious lunch with traditional favourites or something original. I have always found the staff extremely friendly and polite 😊 I have eaten here once in the evening too and that was a real treat.

Not a very friendly place. The potion of the cake was rather small for the price even against others in the area. Staff were not friendly.Does not make me want to visit them again

Excellent lunch served by very friendly staff. Good value for money especially the scrummy carrot cake. We will definitely visit again.

went here for brunch and had a lovely cooked breakfast, staff were really helpful and friendly. The food was delicious and cooked to our request; they also welcomed our little dog. The setting is lovely, will definitely be back soon.

Lovely place - excellently decorated for Halloween. I had the soup which tasted fantastic and a decent sized portion, plus it came with a warm fresh bread roll. My partner had the Full English and commented it was one of the best he has ever had! The only thing I would say is the brownie was quite expensive compared to... More

We immediately received a warm welcome. The tea was delicious, sandwiches, quiche, salad, scone jam and cream, a selection of cakes and several pots of... More

On a very hot Saturday afternoon the tea and cakes we had at The Yew Tree were very acceptable. The place is light and airy and spotlessly clean. The staff were pleasant and helpful..
