“A big hit with Cambridgeshire Live readers last Summer after The Willow Tree introduced it’s magical dining pods. If you fancy the traditional al fresco experience you’ll be in good company as you’re looked over by the restaurant’s majestic willow tree. Foodies will be in heaven here too…. it’s the perfect place to spend a Spring day and watch the clouds pass above you.” Cambridgeshire Live, 26th Feb, 2021.
Please may we kindly request that you park considerately in and around Bourn village when visiting The Willow Tree.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
Many thanks, Shaina & Team Willow
