    Quite possibly one of the best meals we have ever eaten and certainly the best at The Box Tree. The food from the new chef is exciting and bursting with incredible flavours. The tasting menu was beautifully presented and perfectly paired with the wine choices. The service was impeccable. We will definitely be back and will 100% recommend it to friends!!!
