AA Pick of the Pubs
Bar menu
Restaurant menu

The Boatwright family took over this country inn in August 2015 and its location just half a mile from the A303 makes it an ideal pit stop for weary travellers driving to and from the West Country. The eponymous tree provides the terrace with welcoming dappled shade on warm sunny days, while inside the black-beamed, part-oak, part-flagstone-floored bar sets the scene. As well as a carefully chosen wine list, West Country-brewed Sharp's real ales (and Thatchers Gold cider from Somerset) can accompany seasonal, locally sourced dishes in the comfortable, wood-panelled restaurant. Typical starters of potted shrimps, brown toast and baby gem salad; or sweet potato and coconut soup might precede main courses of pan-roasted salmon, warm roasted beetroot and spinach salad or slow-cooked pork belly, black pudding, apple sauce, fine beans and fondant potato. A menu of light bites is also served.
