Need front of house, waited ages to order then again waited for ages before anything else was done. Lots of staff but no sense of urgency.

The staff are so helpful. The teepee was washed out yesterday which must have had an impact on this busy restaurant. Staff just sat us down, told us our table would be ready shortly. It was and we had an excellent lunch. Thank you so much.

Much too wet to enjoy the outside dining - but they seated us inside.
Lovely menu and hard to choose!
Enjoyed the meals we all chose.. We will be back.

Wasn’t asked how we wanted our steak cooked, turned up so pink! Food was taken back to kitchen and returned with the veg and potatoes missing.
Not enough veg on the plate for a roast dinner costing £19!
Beautiful restaurant but service needs to be more refined,

Food was delicious.
Service for drinks was very slow and we never received our tap water.
Would have been interesting to see how the food arrived if it had been raining as the route to the outdoor seating wasn’t protected for waiting staff between kitchen and tables.
Background music was a little bit too loud. However it was a really great meal and I would go again.

Visited for Sunday lunch on a short notice booking. Our table in the tepee was very atmospheric. Other tables situated in the garden and those inside a stunning building also looked great and well spaced.
It was a busy time so service was a little slow, but we were in no rush so not disappointed. Staff welcoming. Roast lamb and beef tender++. Yorkshires a little chewy, but overall had an excellent meal. Would go back.

We had had a few attempts to get to the Weeping Willow, which had been strongly recommended to us and finally got there for my wife’s birthday. It was everything we had been told to expect and more. Wonderful atmosphere, service, food etc., so good in fact that we have rebooked to go back with friends next week. I would not hesitate to recommend this wonderful restaurant to anyone, whatever the occasion. a beautifully balanced experience. Thank you so much to all responsible.

The restaurant was very busy, as a consequence we had quite a long wait for service. Our waitress was charming and apologised. Otherwise our visit was very enjoyable and we will definitely visit again.
