Yew Tree, Spurstow, Cheshire, CW6 9RD – The Good Pub Guide

Good Pub Guide Recommended

Plenty of individuality, smashing food and drinks and a bouncy atmosphere
At any time of day this entertaining place is buzzing with locals and diners all efficiently looked after by the energetic young staff, and the décor is quirky and individual: nicely simple pale grey, off-white and cream surfaces explode into striking bold wallpaper, there's a magnified hunting tapestry and surprisingly angled bright tartans, and an elegant mix of nice old tables and chairs that mix with Giant Timorous Beasties' bees papered on to the bar ceiling and a stag's head that looms out of the wall above a log fire. And the doors to the loos are quite a puzzle which of the many knobs and handles actually work?! Elland Best Bitter, Heavy Industry Nos Smoked Porter, Lytham Fettlers Ale, Phoenix White Monk, and Stonehouse Station Bitter on handpump, 20 malt whiskies, 15 wines by the glass from an interesting list and 15 gins. A more dining-oriented area shares the same feeling of relaxed bonhomie a favourite table is snugged into a stable-stall-style alcove of stripped wood; background music. A terrace outside has teak tables, with more on the grass.

Visited for the first time last Saturday. Excellent food and beer was available. Really buzzing at 3pm, with locals and diners. Great coffee served.

Happened upon the Yew Tree by chance at lunchtime on Easter Saturday and what a find!!
We decided to go for the English Tapas Menu and what a good choice - the food was excellent. This coupled with the stunning array of real ales makes this pub one of my all time favorites. Particularly liked the concept of having three different ales in 1/3 pint glasses - just like wine tasting.
The atmosphere and service was also extremely good and welcoming.
Well done the Yew Tree - shame there is not one of these in South Gloucestershire!
