The Tree Hotel
oxfordshire
 
 
Asian or European? That is the culinary question faced when dining at The Tree Hotel.

Nestled in the leafy Iffley village, this pub restaurant is a popular retreat with the locals, who were already warming the seats in the bar early Tuesday evening when we arrived. We received a warm welcome from manager Namit upon arrival who showed us to our table and took our drinks orders. My dining partner was pleased to find a choice of real ales in the bar while I settled for a fruity Pinot Grigio. With all the charm of a typical English pub, there is a lovely friendly ambience about the place which makes you feel instantly relaxed.

With specialist European and Indian head chefs, the menu covers a wonderful selection of dishes from around the world. We munched on papadums with a choice of chutneys, pickles and sauces while we deliberated which continental offering we fancied. I was instantly struck by the Mozzarella Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms coated in a tempura batter while my partner opted for the Sesame King Prawns. The mushrooms were delicious and the tempura batter was light and crispy, adding great texture to the dish. The prawns were also very tasty with a fresh and fragrant lime & lemongrass flavour.

Despite being tempted by the pan seared duck breast, I opted for the Mustard Fish Curry and my partner chose the Lamb Rogan Josh. I can hand-on-heart say it was the best fish curry I have ever tasted. I’m normally drawn to hot and spicy dishes, but the delicate spicing of this dish and beautifully soft melt-in-your-mouth Pangasius fish from the Indian Ocean left me scraping the bowl for every last drop.

Equally impressive were the desserts, a lovely Apple Crumble for my partner and a Chocolate Fondant for me. Worth the 15min cooking time as it gave us a chance make some room in the belly!

The Tree Hotel caters menus for both lunches and dinner with regular weekly offers such as Mondays 2 for 1 on mains, Gentlemen’s Night on Tuesdays and Ladies night on Wednesdays for 50% discounts. Their Sunday 'eat as much as you like' international buffet with carvery is extremely popular, so best to book in advance. They also run a range of events and were promoting their International Wine Tasting evening in June during our visit.

This unassuming pub restaurant will quickly exceed your expectations from the cheery welcome and fabulous service through to the delicious cuisine. I highly recommend a visit and will definitely be booking a table to try out the famous Sunday buffet very soon!
