The charming Grade II listed, three storey building, believed to have been a mill, dates back to the late 17th century. The Willow Tree was established by previous owners, Darren Sherlock and Rita Rambellas in 2002 and is one of the most highly rated restaurants in Taunton, with awards and accolades including two AA Rosettes, a ‘Remy’ award, and was named as one of the ‘Top Ten Romantic Places to Eat in the UK’ by Good Food.



The new owners have temporarily closed The Willow Tree for refurbishment and will re-open with an updated menu of seasonal modern British classics in the autumn.

Stephen Champion, Senior Agent at Christie & Co’s Exeter office comments, “We are delighted to have facilitated the sale of such a well-respected business. We wish the new owners every success and have no doubt they will build upon the fabulous reputation developed by our clients, Rita and Darren.”
