    Sublime, outstanding, no words can describe how cathartic this whole experience is. Servers are professional, knowledgeable but warm. Food was beautifully presented and melt in the mouth. A night here feels like a treat, a rejuvenation and a memory filled into one. Second visit of many.

    Excellent food and service. Friendly and helpful staff in an ideal setting. Can’t rate the food and wine tasting menu highly enough. Will be going as soon as we can.

    There is a mismatch between the food , the cost and the kind of service received. The two young waitresses need some serious training, did they tell us what the specials were or offer to hang our coats, NO. The pub serves a nice range of sherry by the glass, the waitress seemed to think it was sold the by glass size (as per the wine) and got quite annoyed when we couldn't pick a size, it was just one size. When it came to ordering dessert we asked for a little time before choosing,but that seemed to not sit well with the staff so on the third time the waitress came to ask, she said look are you having dessert or not! The two male waiters were very good and helpful, but it was marred by the other waiting staff. It was local pub service at top restaurant prices.. It is not a place to linger, we couldn't wait to get out of there..

    Excellent service; friendly, relaxed, attentive but not obtrusive. Atmosphere: intimate, cosy, relaxed Food: exquisite, delicious from starter to desserts. Little tasters were amazing. The mushroom soup was amazing. It was simply a beautiful experience from beginning to end. I would highly recommend the Nuttree for any special occasion.

    I had the tasting menu with my partner a few weeks backs. The best dish was the amuse bouche with a piece of bread that you could choose between the different beads. The rest of the tasting menu I found it a bit disappointing as I was supposed to be having dinner in a Michelin star restaurant from 2008. We were sat by the fire in the old part of the restaurant - it was a very nice table! But every time someone walked near us, the floor was "jumping" like we were having an earthquake.

    A lovely Sunday lunch to celebrate a birthday. Food tastes different at the Nut Tree. Try it!

    Tasting menu provided an array of contrasting flavours, beautifully balanced meal. A dining experience of the highest order. Wine flight to match was an excellent complement to the meal.

    Great food, and loved the fact that the environment was like a village pub: nice and cosy, with log fire going. Very friendly staff.

    We have been to the Nut Tree many times over the years, and it remains the only restaurant we have ever visited, that be faulted in any way. The location, the food and the service were just superb as always

    We went for midweek lunch because it is equidistant between us and our friends. The approach is very appealing; through Cotswold villages. The outward appearance is very attractive and the car parking is excellent. We were met by a very quiet Jack Russell who also bid us goodbye. The interior is very characterful, if a touch dark. We were met immediately and offered drinks. We were then shown straightaway to our table. The food quality was superb and served piping hot - a rare treat. The staffing was tremendous and they were all customer oriented. I wish that we had been hungrier but unfortunately we could only manage a main course each. Two of us had fish and chips. One had “Onglet” steak and the other had a pork dish from the main menu. The portions were the perfect size for us and the food was stunningly good. The staff were fully attentive throughout, without being intrusive. I thoroughly recommend this restaurant and certainly hope to go again - although it is quite a long way from where we live.
