Nick Davies left this review about The Yew Tree

A very pleasant community-owned pub in a small village below the Burton Dassett Country Park, though the idyll is spoilt rather by the constant roar of the M40 a couple of fields away.

It's a handsome double fronted Hornton stone house which has been extended over the years. Originally the entrance would have led to a bar on the left, best room to the right. All knocked through now with a more recent restaurant area to the rear, but the traditional character remains, stone floors, open fires, wooden settles, no pastel grey paint here. Service was enthusiastic but a pity the beer range isn't as innovative as when Ian called twelve months ago, Wainwright, Morlands, Butty Bach...we went for the rather tired Tribute. Point deducted.

The hills are popular with walkers and kite fliers and have stupendous views on a clear day. A visit to the Yew Tree would complete a day out perfectly but check opening times early in the week.

Under new tenants from Dec 2018 - along with a fancy new website.

Popped in for a mid walk drink and was greeted enthusiastically by the staff.

Four real ales on - two from Sheffields Bradfield Brewery (strange, as we're a long way from there). I was warned that they would be cloudy as "something had been done in the cellar". Samples offered and the beer was fine.

Lovely location and I wish them every success.

A Warm welcome awaits you in our Country pub, famous for “64 ways to eat homemade pie.” Food is served in the restaurant and the bar and is primarily traditional British fare produced using local sourced seasonal ingredients, extensive specials & home made puddings.

Sunday Choice of 3 roast dinner or full menu

Sitting in the quiet picturesque village of Avon Dassett near Dassett hills - halfway between Stratford-upon-Avon and Banbury with a good selection of beers including Timothy Taylor Golden Best and Green Kings IPA and a fine selection of wines and soft drinks.

Definitely worth a visit
