Old Boots left this review about The Apple Tree

Another pub that’s nailed the process but makes it all too slow for just a beer. Shallow L shape of a place, three pulls but not working probably due to plague, possibly a good thing as it’s a Greene King pub without the guest beers options. Definitely a pub that got the anti-plague procedures right but missed out on the customer service. All too modern inside for my tastes but I’m not the target demographic, low end family dining then later sporty youth I suppose.

This is a large pub that is trying to cover all bases and as a result ending up not doing any of them that well. There are four hand pumps and CAMRA discount but there was a cider and only one beer, the dire Greene King Rocking Rudolph. A TV screen was showing football on one side but there were only about half a dozen people watching. The rest of the pub was mostly family groups in for a bite to eat while out shopping. This and the fact it's a large open plan room made it seem like a Spoons but with nothing worth drinking. At least the Rocking Rudolph was cheap £2.45 inclusive of the 10% CAMRA discount.
I probably wouldn't bother coming here again.
