This looks like Sorbus cashmeriana. I have it in my garden, we call it "plant a tree in 93" which was when it was planted as you may have guessed. The birds love the berries and I find lots of seedlings underneath it. Even got a couple growing as bonsai but only had leaves after about 8 or 10 years.
It's nice when the leaves fall and you're left with the berries, until the birds come that is.

S. cashmeriana has pink berries in my garden.

Cashmeriana is a variety of rowan that has white berries.
Landgirl are you sure yours isn't hupehensis?

It is S. cashmeriana, there are several different cultivars and mine is a pink one. It's a lovely, graceful small tree, one of my favourites. Must take a photo!

There is one called Sorbus cashmiriana 'Rosiness' with pink berries Steragram. Similar to hupehensis in photos.
They're all nice in the dark winter days.

Yes, all lovely. Must confess I still love the originals though.
