Reasons for trip

After a quick walk round the very delightful village of Drayton one weekday, we decided on a pub lunch. There are two pubs next door to one another and after finding no-one to serve us at The Fox Inn, we popped into The Cherry Tree.

To my husband's delight, this is a Wadsworth's pub so he enjoyed his pint. The menu looked quite interesting, too, (especially the starers and "boards") so we found a table.

All the staff were delightful – very friendly and welcoming – and the various rooms inside are old and comfortable, but sadly the food did not meet expectations. We both chose liver and bacon, and although the portions were good, the liver was overcooked and not very tasty. The grilled bacon, however, was excellent. It came with mash, carrots and green beans – fairly average. We could have eaten swordfish, .burgers and the usual pub dishes such as fish and chips, steak or home-made pie for around £9.00 – £14.00

The desserts looked predictable – crumble, ice cream, tart or sticky toffee pudding – and would have cost about £5.50.

We did have coffee – and that was a mistake as it was quite dreadful.

So – the owners are trying hard but I think it needs to buck its ideas up if it is going to expect anyone to return for a second meal.
