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 Orchard Pig cider from Somerset) can accompany seasonal, locally sourced dishes in the comfortable, wood-panelled restaurant. Typical starters of spinach, wild mushroom and blue cheese tart; or fillet of smoked mackerel with red pepper and caper relish might precede main courses of pan-roasted smoked haddock loin, lentils, peas and bacon or Mauritian chicken curry. A two-course lunch menu is also available on weekdays.
