Really great find. All of the staff (from the bar staff to waiters/ waitresses and owners) were absolutely lovely - very friendly, polite and attentive.

We stayed in a family room (room 8) which was good - really comfy beds and great to have actual beds for the kids, rather than the usual sofa/ pull out beds.

Food was homemade and really delicious with fantastic portion sizes. They also had my favourite on tap (Korev).

Where other hotels and restaurants are cutting corners to save money, the Yew Tree add the finishing touches and hire lovely staff which made our visit memorable.
Thank you - we will hopefully be back and have time to sample the Sunday roast next time :)

We had high expectations. My husband had researched for some time (as he does) and asked locals on Facebook groups for the best place for a Sunday roast dinner whilst we were on holiday in the Forest Of Dean. The Yew Tree was the pub chosen. We drove 30 minutes from our holiday cottage. On arrival the juke box had heavy metal music on with heavy base... not the best ambiance for a country pub roast dinner. I did ask abd they changed it. Staff weren't the most welcoming. They were busy though. Drinks wise, I asked for coke. The response was is Pepsi OK? I said yes but witnessed my drink being poured out of a 2L plastic bottle. Disappointing. They'd run out of ice. My drink was room temp and not that fizzy. Food wise there wasn't a starter option. We ordered roast dinners, i had one meat (Pork) and the hubby had two meats (pork & chicken). There wasn't any mash potato which is what I love most on my roast. Delicious roast potatoes, which we'd ordered extra of. Mixed medly of veg. Tasty gravy albeit a tad watery for our liking. Plenty of meat. The pigs in blankets were served in a dish, half sausages & bacon with maple syrup. Delicious.

The desserts looked divine but we were too full.

Room Tip: Book in advance. If you want mash potato on your roast look elsewhere.

The room was comfortable and a good size for 3 adults. The evening menu was varied but the restaurant quiet when we ate which was quite late (we were the only ones there). The steak was a little overcooked for my liking but the flavour and tenderness made up for it. I was asked if I wanted it replaced which was nice. The service from Karen was attentive without being over bearing. Breakfast was good too. Overall a good stay.

Tonight we visited the yew tree for a family meal to celebrate a 60th. There was 15 of us and as expected nothing ever runs smooth when u r in a big group but tonight I was shocked at the rudeness towards us as customers.. firstly a starter was missing from our party but that turned out to be the fault of us as it was missed off our list but we only found that out by the rude owner/chef whatever she was coming out and reading the list out to us.. this wasn’t a problem as we shared the starters we did have and enjoyed them. Then came the mains.... before any mains were brought out the waitress came out and asked how the steaks would like to be cooked. They gave there preference and off she went. Then when the well done steak came out but was not cooked as requested and pointed out the lovely waitress took the steak back And then our group was approached Again by this same chef/owner to get THE LIST back out and state there wasn’t a well done steak on the list but she will take it back this time..... we were asked only half hour ago how We wanted our steaks so it obviously wouldn’t be on THE LIST. I personally enjoyed my food and would have Came back again to enjoy it but she has put me off ever visiting this pub every again with her lack of customer service. I understand it was a busy night but Maybe take some time to learn people skills and not approach people in such an angry aggressive manor..

Stumbled upon this pub whilst passing through for a conference! Traditional, friendly British pub. I went on a Wednesday lunch time and it was empty. The staff were very friendly and helpful and it seemed like a favourite for the locals that did pop by. Quiet and peaceful, the food was lovely. The staff were very accommodating when I wanted to charge my phone, thank you!

What a fantastic place to visit. Hardworking happy staff, making your stay memorable. Food is outstanding quality, well presented and expertly cooked. We stayed in a courtyard room, very clean, tidy and comfortable. Breakfast is perfect for getting ready for the day. The motto of this place is 'arrive as guests, leave as family'. Definitely will visit again.

On arrival no heating in our room. Minus 3 outside. We had been booked for over a month so they knew we were coming. Room very cold. Luckily I packed a hot water bottle. Courtyard had no lighting, I'm disabled, unsteady on my feet, so I regard this as dangerous. Bar was lovely and warm. Log burner. Staff were friendly and helpful, but needs a lot more planning for visitors. Not worth £90 a night. Doesn't include breakfast.
Don't think I would go back.

We booked through laterooms asking for 5 days at a wheelchair friendly hotel, preferably with a wet room in Ross on Wye and was booked in with this hotel. When we arrived realised it was actually Gloucestershire, however, having travelled so far and we had not been on holiday for years due to illness we made the best of it. It seemed to be in the middle of nowhere, but heck, we have a car!
The hotel on the plus side would be fine for non disabled people, staff on the outset seemed very accomodating and the breakfast was excellent but less than 24 hours later we were being shouted at by the Manager 'Paul' and threatened with a soliciter.
When we arrived, went into pub area and paid the £345 for 5 days, (We had to pay an extra £45 for it being a family room)..... I being tired from driving but able bodied was quickly shown the room and given the key.
The ground of the courtyard was of loose stone and the wheelchair got stuck fast in it with the wheels spinning and my partner nearly falling out of it. Never mind, carry on, we are british, once in the room which was classed as a family room, (and would have been great for able bodied family actually). It was very clean with a contemporary design, white linen bedding.
It had a double bed and a single bed side by side with a bedside cabinet inbetween on the opposite side of the room was a very large comfortable wicker chair, the type you have in conservatories. We realised we would have to make some minor adjustments as my partner in the wheelchair could not get to the bed, it was not wide enough. The whole room was far too small for a wheelchair user. This was the only so called 'disabled' room they had.
I moved the bedside cabinets and pushed the two beds together, (I had to crawl up into my single bed.) so he could sidle up to the bed. My partner, dave, can not walk at all but can transfer.
When reversing out alongside the bed the hinderence was the large wicker chair, this also prevented him from negioting his way into the bathroom, so I simply picked it up and moved it in front of the wardrobe but also unfortunately blocking daves access to outside. Nevermind, 'Carry on,' yes, and yes it was.
Dave could not use the bathroom properly, because the toilet was too low with the addition of having no grab rails was impossible for him to use other than to urinate. There was no grab rails of shower seat in the wet area, so he could not use that either.
The small flat screen telivision was high up and fixed, you could not rotate or tilt which was needed to be able to view it properly, the only viewing position would be the beds.
Vewed at this angle looked like a 'Andy Warhol' version of tv, or it was very dark, which I tried to lighten with controls.
I then need access to the built in wardrobe ( 2 hangers only) so had to move the chair back temporarily, big mistake! .......When I lifted it up a long thread reeled up from the carpet was caught on the bottom of one of legs of the chair, horified, I quickly put it down at the side and carefully dis- entangled it. The weave of the carpet must have been like unravelling a hand-knitted jumper as it left a bare trail some 2 cm with a fluffy thread hanging on.
I lifted the chair again carefully this time but alas it caught again but I quickly put it down not to cause any more damage. It was left at the bottom of my single bed.
The manager 'Paul' called by and asked if we were warm enough as he had switched the heating off. It was then I showed him the problem, and explained that one of the chair legs must need sanding down as it caught the carpet. He was cross that we moved the chair and said we should have asked for help moving it, but did not comment on us moving the beds of the bedside cabinet. I said I was quite capable of lifting the chair, the problem is the leg.
He went on his way.
To continue........When Dave tried to get out of the door access was not easy for him for the single bed got in the way overlapping the entrance of the door by a couple of cms and also being abutt up to the wall (and as it was when we arrived). The other side of the door could not be opened back wide as it was flushed onto the wide brick wall, thus, he caught the fitting of the door and it started to come away, ( this was a long plastic strip, decoration I think, on the front of the door.) Oh oops!

We realised later that night we could not stay here for 4 more days and especially with the weather turning we would have to spend more time in that room. So we asked paul to come to the room after breakfast the next morning to explain the difficulties we were having with the room. The cook / partner? / assistant with him. Straight away I told him we could not stay any longer because the room was not suitable and began to explain why.
It is then he went bollistic about the carpet and would not give us any money back and saying take it up with 'laterooms', I said, we were not paying for the carpet as it was accidental due to his faulty chair, but he just would not listen and shouted very loudly over me threatening us with legal action. ..........he stormed off saying take it up with laterooms, but I said it is you whom I have paid. We tried to contact them on our mobile but could not get through due to number of calls, left a number to get back to us, but they did not.
I packed out stuff into the car and was trying to get dave out into the car but the wheelchair got stuck again and the pair of them was walking past and saw the dilemma, the cook came to help me but paul just put his head up and walked on. It took both of our strength to move him as the wheels were just spinning round kicking up the stones.
I went in to the pub area to give the key back and Paul smiled at me and said did you speak to 'lateroom' then, I told him I could not get through. I then told him, that we had not been on holiday for years and was looking forward to this break. We had no other hotels to go to and had to travel all the way back to Manchester now because you have got our money....and left trying to hold back the tears of the stress we had been put through.

This is the truth, the whole truth and help me God.

David and Margaret.

Myself, four friends and a lad called Kieran stayed here for one night during the Cheltenham Festival.

Straight away the owners and staff were very accommodating as we arrived very early in order to get to the racecourse (a minibus was provided at a fantastic rate). We were able to check in early which put our minds at rest and enabled us to enjoy our day of racing and quizzing.

After the racing we returned to the Yew Tree for drinks and enjoyed the cracking atmosphere, tasty beer and jukebox. We finished off our evening with some top notch pub grub. The dauphinois potatoes were what dreams are made of. The gammon is highly recommended too.

The accommodation is spot on and very competitively priced, particularly during the Cheltenham Festival when profiteering is rampant.

The breakfast was great and again, very good value for money.

Throughout our stay the staff were tremendous and have guaranteed that we'll be staying here again.

Yew know it makes sense.

We stayed here for 2 nights as it was close to 2 sets of friends. For a pub I thought the quality of the accommodation was very good as it wasn't the traditional pub type room above the bar, but in a separate building behind the pub. The room itself was very good with a comfortable bed and a really good bathroom. There is plenty of parking and a great garden particularly if you have children. There is space to sit outside the rooms and the location is convenient. The road is close by, but didn't seem too noisy. Breakfast is extra and fairly basic, not much choice of cereal, but okay. My only real complaint was the blinds in the bedrooms are inadequate to keep the light out, especially in the summer months and I had a very disturbed night waking up every time the external lighting was activated by a late returning guest, or perhaps a cat wandering around outside. Thicker curtains and less sensitive courtesy lighting are definitely needed.
