My partner's lasagne was apparently very good and they did swap chips for sweet potato so well done on that score.
My sausage, mash and peas however were not so bright, especially the hard peas. The mash too seemed to be microwaved.How difficult is it to boil peas and get them edible? I can generally do it and I'm no chef.

Booked a table which u normally have to do on a Saturday evening, wasn’t very busy which is a shame as the food was excellent and service very good, the new owners of 2 years are trying to rebuild there reputation and if the food which they served remains consistent then they will be back on top before long. Very impressed

Well feel the need to write yet another review on the elm tree.

We went in on pie night and the pies were OK and the service was OK

It’s getting better very slowly. Didn’t seem to have the yobbo element today and a better mix of punters.

But remember this place is in voluntary liquidation which almost certainly means they are sweating the asset.

Cut backs here and there to maximise profits.

I will be going in again as I do not want to see yet another pub down the pan and this place could, could, be an absolute gold mine considering the new estate being built footsteps away.

Please support local pubs before they are gone and turned into nursery’s for kids.

We used to regularly travel out to the Elm Tree on account of their excellent food and generous portions. Unfortunately on arrival we found there to be new owners (it looks like the pub has been directly taken over by Greene King). We decided to give it a shot anyway, and we were severely disappointed. The menu was Wetherspoons-esque, the staff rude and unhelpful, and the food was awful. Burnt food, miserly portions, poor presentation, overall a very unsatisfactory experience.
