The Cherry Tree Pub on Duck Lane, Haddenham has recently been bought by the Taylor family.
The building is now undergoing major renovations, and we are hoping to re-open the doors towards the end of the summer. It will no longer be run as a pub in the traditional sense. Our aim is that it will provide tea / coffee and a range of good quality meals and snacks, thereby serving the needs of the wider community.
It will be fully licensed, offering a selection of wines, beers and ciders and spirits, (including a good selection of gins!) Opening at 8 am, we will be offering bacon rolls, sausage baps and a few healthier breakfast options. Light lunches will give way to afternoon teas, which in turn will be followed, on selected evenings, by Pizza evenings, quiz nights and street food events.
As an experienced midwife, Siobhan is going to be offering “Midwife Mornings” where pregnant women can pop in for friendly advice or an extra antenatal check and new parents can pop in for support and advice and even weigh their baby. Feeding support will be on hand in a friendly and comfortable environment. Older siblings will be able to play in the child friendly area and will be able to enjoy plenty of fun activities and events (such as ‘messy play mornings’) with Hannah, who is an experienced Primary School teacher.
We will offer a selection of specialist teas and coffees, with Chris being our skilled barista and resident coffee snob! Yummy home-baked cakes and scones will be available throughout the day and for those who enjoy being spoiled, a deluxe afternoon tea will be a tempting option. We already have our first “hen do” booked!
We are passionate about serving the needs and preferences of the local community.
We really want to make this a local hub. With this in mind, things may be rather “fluid” initially, changing to meet the demands of Haddenham and the surrounding area. If something we try isn’t popular, we’ll try something else. We are hoping to create a relaxed “home from home” environment for all to enjoy. We’re currently looking into making the premises wheelchair accessible and dog-friendly. We’ve had the idea of a ‘bike café’ suggested and are happy to hear other thoughts from the community, let us know on: email@example.com
Our Cherry Tree Facebook page (and other social media accounts) will keep everyone updated on progress and events. Please have a look at:

Website under construction – details will be made available on social media soon.
Sadly, the original Cherry tree which gave the building its name, was felled prior to our purchase. Once all the renovations are complete, we shall be having a launch event where a new Cherry tree will be planted.
We are all really looking forward to this new and exciting venture and to being part of such a lovely, friendly local community.
