“Eating at Yew Tree "DON'T"”

Written on: 26/11/2012 by bobpearce (1 review written)

My partner and I booked to eat at the Yew Tree last Sat evening 24th November 2012 but before we went I checked out the reviews on the Web.
As you can read they are shocking but in 2011 they were better.
Knowing a restaurant is only as good as it's Chef or cook in this case we decided to give it a go.
Firstly can we say the staff were very polite,attentive and curtious although it was not busy? supprise.
We ordered the baked Camenbert with bread to share but when it came it had been nuked in the microwave?.
They didn't have any Rib-eye steaks which were on the menue so we decided to have a sirloin steak medium rare and the mixed grill for me.
We had just started our starter when the waitress came up with the two main courses and said your main meals are ready?.We both replied I think you can see we have only just started our starter lol.
After we had finished our first course we quickly got our mains but the food had not been de plated just put under the hot lights as the steak knives were to hot to handle LOL.
My mixed grill was adequate but my partners steak was shocking as it was so tough she couldn't cut the meat.
To be fare when we complianed the steak meal was deducted off the bill.
As I said in my opening comments a restaurant is only as good as it's chef but again I say this was a cook and nothing more.
The pub,staff and interior 10 out of 10 but sorry to say the food 2 out of 10.
Please enjoy?.
