the yew Tree
We are delighted that since opening our doors in November 2017, the Yew Tree is, once again, becoming a social hub for the village and the surrounding community – and we’re thrilled.
Our goal has always been to create a local hub where our guests are offered great food and drink in a relaxed atmosphere. Having said that we love it when we are ‘discovered’ by out of towners, locals from Marlow and Henley and beyond. Our bar is dog friendly, if it is cold our fire will be lit and if it’s warm, our lovely garden comes into its own. We hope to see you at the Yew Tree very soon.
Oh and we got one of these which was nice! Thanks to everyone who has reviewed us : )
Our main menu changes regularly, subject to seasonal and market availability. There will always be a good selection of meat, game, poultry, fish and vegetarian options, but we will be rotating dishes, subject to customer demand and chef’s inspiration.
The Specials board changes even more frequently so it’s always worth keeping an eye on it for something that takes your fancy.
By the Glass
There’s one thing that you can be sure of when visiting the Yew Tree – and that’s a perfect glass of what ales you… From our fantastic wine cellar, 54 wines, 20 by the glass, guest ales or just a perfect gin & tonic, we’ve got you covered.
We feature 4 local cask conditioned ales, with beers from Rebellion Brewery Marlow, Chiltern Brewery and West Berkshire Brewery on tap at the moment. We also have some craft ales by the bottle for those who like a bit more choice.
HOW WE WORK
As we come to terms with regenerating a pub that has been closed for more than four years and following an extensive period of poor trading, we will be employing a more holistic approach to the welfare and wellbeing of our staff to enjoy a more regulated working environment.
Our industry suffers from extensive hours in the kitchen or on the floor, where a 7-day week requires a full-time crew supported by part timers on their days off. How many times have you heard or asked the question, is the “Head chef on tonight?” or “is it the Managers day off?”
Country pubs are notoriously quiet on Monday and Tuesday, so, initially we will be closed on Monday and Tuesday (except for Bank Holidays) and closed for two weeks in summer and two weeks in winter. This lets our staff enjoy the same quality time as our guests do, with their families and children, and plan their social life around a stable and regular frequency.
The benefits are that our guests can be assured of the same front of house and chefs on all the five days we are open, supported by additional waiting staff on the busier periods, bringing continuity, quality and performance that a well drilled brigade of hospitality professionals want to deliver.
GARDEN DRINKING AND DINING @THE YEW TREE
We have missed you all and are beyond excited to welcome you back through our doors (and into the Garden/patio) on the 16th of April at 12pm.
Some of those RULES we are probably all aware of, but to clarify;
- ALL guest over 16yrs of age must either electronically sign in on a new EHS QR code or sign a registration sheet (as before).
- Outside drinking and dining, but you can choose to drink without having a meal.
- 6 different household guests to a table or unlimited from 2 households
- Seated table service only
Obviously, all service is weather dependant, however we will take bookings for around half of our tables with the balance used on a first come first served.
Our menu will be slightly reduced to reflect outdoor dining, more comfort food and pub classics, if the weather is good, we will break out the specials, BBQ and salads!
Our hours have been slightly condensed in appreciation of external only service and are as follows until a full indoor reopening on the 17th of May, with social distancing and in anticipated hope of a full unrestricted service from June the 21st. (we will remain flexible if weather and guests are favourable to extending times)
Saturday: 12- 10
Any questions or enquiries please feel free to call or email us, boy are we looking forward to seeing you all again soon.
Carlos, Joy and the whole Team @ the Yew Tree
