WELCOME TO THE WILLOW TREE
Information on how we will operate during our enforced closure
Following the announcement by the government The Willow Tree will be closed until further notice.
During this time we will be offering a takeaway service for hot food and store cupboard essentials from our newly formed Pop Up Shop. We hope that you will support our efforts and that we can also make life easier for you during this difficult period.
Our current hot food takeaway menu is subject to availability and can be found on our webpage by clicking on OUR MENU.
Our current pop up shop stock list can be found by clicking on POP UP SHOP.
We now have a collection method which means that no one will come into contact with anyone else by following this process.
Please call us between the hours of 2 and 5pm Monday to Saturday on Tel:01636629003 to place your order. You must advise us of any allergies at this time.
We will take payment by credit or debit card over the telephone having confirmed availability of your menu choices or shop purchases.
You can collect your food and/or pop up shop essentials during the hours of 5pm and 7pm Monday to Saturday. Other times by prior arrangement only. We will agree a time for collection when you place your order. Please do your very best to place your order outside of our collection window (5 to 7pm) As we will be cooking and dealing with visitors during that time.
All collections will take place at our rear entrance. This is in the courtyard just off of our carparking area.
Please enter the courtyard and ring the door bell at our back door.
You may wait for assistance either in the shelter or by the glass topped door at our rear entrance.
We will then deliver your food to the table in our rear porch and open the rear door for you to collect it.
Please DO NOT enter the porch area until our team member has safely retreated behind the internal door and it has shut. We will signal to you that you may enter to collect your food.
Once you have left the porchway we will enter and lock the door. We will then sanitize the area, touch points, door bell and handles ready to welcome our next customer.
If another customer is already in our courtyard waiting for their food, please do not enter until they have left and we have completed our cleaning process. You may wait in our car park until this has been completed. Whilst we appreciate the early arrival of our customers please be aware that early or late arrivals put others at risk.
To keep us all safe we would appreciate your co-operation.
It is very important that we only provide takeaway food to your own household. If you are intending to use our service to socialise with anyone who doesn't ordinarily live with you, whether they are visiting family members or friends, then we will be unable to provide you with this service. This is a strict instruction from the department for environmental health. Stay home! Stay Safe! Flatten the curve!
We are counting on your support, thank you for your support and hope that you enoy your meal!
Our Pop Up Shop has been created to offer essential supplies to both our local community and the essential services.
Local steaks are our speciality - with three different cuts to choose from it's always "steak night" at The Willow Tree.
We care about the quality and the provenance of the food and drinks that we serve. In our menu you will find an explanation of where much of our produce comes from and of our general philosophy of using fresh, local, seasonal ingredients while supporting local producers and suppliers.
Today at The Willow Tree our aim is to provide locals and visitors from near & far with well-kept, traditional English cask ales - brewed on the premises, chilled draught beers, fine wines from around the world and good-quality, freshly prepared food, served in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
Originally a small farmhouse and barn, and thought to have been built in 1738, The Willow Tree has been a public house since Thomas Grocock became a 'beer-house keeper' here in the 1870s.
The Willow Tree is a small, independent, family-owned and family-run pub. We look forward to welcoming you and really hope that you enjoy your time with us.
Kathryn & Brett Handley
We're open Wednesday to Saturday evenings from 6:30pm (5:30pm on Fridays) and Sunday lunch from 12-2pm. Food is served in every session except Sunday evening when we open at 7pm for our very popular, challenging and entertaining quiz night.
