Located just a short drive or a ten minute walk from the centre of Sawbridgeworth, the Orange Tree is a beacon of relaxed fine dining nestled in a delightful corner of the English countryside.
Our menu is created by headchef Gareth and owner Franko – who between them bring so many years of experience in the kitchen both in this country and throughout the world. Our main menu combines the best of modern fine dining and delicious takes on pub classics. All of our food is prepared fresh in house to Gareth and Franko’s own recipes. Daily trips to the butchers and fresh deliveries from trusted quality suppliers every day, means that everything on your plate is fresh, homemade and to the highest possible standard.
We also boast a daily changing specials list of internationally inspired recipes, so there is always something new to try at the Orange Tree.
The quality of our food is matched by locally brewed ales from McMullens brewery just down the road in Hertford. It takes just 15 minutes for a barrel to get from the brewery to our cellar where Dawid and the bar team look after them to keep them in peak condition. As well as McMullens regular ales, we also have ten special Rivertown Ales that change with the seasons and the ever-popular Christmas Bootwarmer. There’s also an extensive wine list with many choices available by the glass and many more still by the bottle.
Our philosophy here at the Orange Tree is simple – a mix of delicious fresh food, carefully considered drinks and friendly people, in a place where you can be comfy, relaxed, enthused, inspired, welcomed and looked-after.
