I've eaten here a few times. Food is fab and good value for money and the staff are always lovely and attentive. There's a really nice atmosphere, great place for meeting with friends and family and having a chat. Highly recommended!

My first visit, but it won't be my last! Visited with 2 friends, and the gentleman who took our order was at pains to sit us in a corner area, so we could enjoy a rare girly night out! Food was delicious and service was excellent. Our host had a great sense of humour while still keeping thing professional :-)

Great atmosphere and service was really good, massive fault was the food. I got the prawn curry in which I got exactly 5 prawns and 2 pieces of pinapple in a bowl of curry sauce,the nan bread accompanying it tasted chewy and tasted shop bought. My other half got the chicken gougons with chips and cajun beans and was a very stingy childs portion. Overall we were very disappointed that had to hand over €50 for 2 starters and 2 mains that were very small portion.

This was my second visit to the restaurant and it was my last. I ordered a salmon dish and when it was presented I waited for what I thought would be the accompanying vegetable and / or fries. When I beckoned the staff member I was informed that basically what was sitting on my plate was the entire meal - and this was going to cost me €18.50! So I was paying this money for a small piece of farmed salmon sitting on a spoonful of something resembling 'Smash' - the rest of the plate was empty. I had to order a small bowl of fries which I could not eat because they tasted horrible. Never again!

We were here for lunch on a Monday and it was packed, always a good sign! The food was lovely, if a little bit more expensive than the norm but the decor and atmosphere is fab, I'll definitely be going back again for dinner some weekend

I have eaten here before but it was about 3 months sincemy last visit. I was very disappointed this time however. We went here for lunch and all of us wanted sandwiches from the menu. I asked to have red onion omitted from my sandwich and was told that it was not possible to have the sandwich without the red onion. I was suprised by this response and ended up ordering something else which I wasnt very happy with. Overall none of us were overly happy with our food, a lot of the sandwiches looked like they were made up hours earlier. For the amount of money that they charge for the sandwiches you should be able to have one freshly made if you want one thing omitted. Overall I feel that the restaurant has gone downhill which is such a pity really.

Smashing venue. Good start. Very poor finish. Full house on a Wednesday. Well done all. Prestine venue. The best/worst thing about awards is that they draw customers like me. Clever & well spent advertising helps. Well done all envolved here. Nice welcome at the bar counter. Range of wines by the glass was good. Offered a super table by the fire when available (we had no reservation). Informed of specials while still standing. I get it's a smart gastro pub but sell/pitch at this market & you need to follow through with the service. Mushroom starter was nice. Goats cheese base was undercooked to the point of dough on top (may have been the goats cheese sitting on the bread but I doubt it as the cheese was 'fridge cold'). Lovely burger, Special chicken was tasty, very nice actually (rosti were perfect). Potato side was tepid but swiftly replaced. Main courses were cleared & that was it. No one came back despite our attempts for attention. All in all a nice place. A mistake on the bill was corrected. Not being offered another glass of wine, dessert or even coffee was a let down but will be happy to visit again. I know - I should have gotten up & looked for service but the fire there is too good.

This is possibly my favourite restaurant. I think this is place looks gorgeous and the food is delicious and always well presented. Last time i was here i had pork on the specials menue and the portion was very generous and was cooked to perfection. The service is very good and staff were friendly and efficient. The atmosphere here is quite classy and I would say nearly romantic with low lightings and sofisticated decor. What I really like about it is that he price is very resonable as well. I would recommend it to anyone.

Went here for the Sunday Carvery lunch, which was very nice. It is very popular and was busy the day we went. Very tasty menu and enjoyable meal.

The Elm Tree Bar & Restaurant is a spacious place with great service and plently of room for kids to run around and play. The portions are fairly good but the carvary can be very crowded on eg sundays. Although i was mostly always happy with the servive i recieved. Its great when there is a match on as you can watch it on the large televisions while eating or having a few jars. Best of all the parking is great so no worrying about getting a space..
