The Orange Tree is the area's most exciting country pub and restaurant.

Just a ten minute walk from the centre of the village and set in beautiful Hertfordshire countryside with large gardens and two ample car parks, we offer a warm welcome and relaxed dining.

We serve drinks from 12-3pm then 6pm-11pm Tuesday to Saturday and 12 noon till 6pm on Sunday (unless we have a special event which means opening later). Our kitchen, serving fresh, home cooked food, is open from 12-2.30pm lunchtime and again 6-9pm (last orders 8.30pm Tuesday - Thursday and 8.45pm Friday and Saturday). On Sundays we serve a full menu plus our Home Cooked Sunday Roasts from 12-6pm (last orders 4.30pm).

Great Food in Relaxed Surroundings

In a short space of time we have firmly established ourselves as Sawbridgeworth's favourite eating venue. Our reputation for great food has brought a clientele from across the breadth of Hertfordshire and Essex and beyond with rave reviews.

Our aim is simple. To offer clean, comfortable and friendly surroundings in which to enjoy great, seasonal and freshly cooked food at affordable prices.

Each day, our Specials Board is drawn up using the best fresh, locally sourced (where possible) ingredients and comprises meat, fish dishes and vegetarian options.

Our regular menu includes firmly established such as our sustainable Battered Fish & Chips (GF), Home Baked Suet Crust Pie and the Orange Tree 8oz Sirloin/Fillet Burger plus lots more.We take the provenance of our food and drink seriously too. Our fish is mostly from UK waters and delivered daily.

Our meat - where possible - comes from family run farms, most of which are no more than 20 miles from our kitchen and we can trace every cut back to the source whilst our fruit, vegetables and dairy is largely sourced via East of England producers as long as quality and availability can be assured.

Our kitchen team comprises keen, ambitious and talented chefs who delight in exciting customers with innovative flavour combinations and appealing presentations.

Everything on the menu is cooked in house from the Home made Focaccia bread to the Coffee Biscuits and our customers tell us that's just how they like it.
