I had occasion to stay overnight for business. You couldn't ask for a warmer welcome. The dinner was supper and the breakfast was better. A very friendly and professional couple in charge. If you fancy a change from the more mundane and corporate feel, then it's well worth a stay.

Four of us visited the Walnut Tree last Sunday for lunch. We had bar meals not the full Sunday Lunch. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced for the quality. The pigeon breast, risotto, steak and ale pie and the roast chicken breast were all delicious. Next time we are in the area we will visit again.

The Walnut Tree Restaurant is just off the A303 at West Camel and is a quiet and secluded haven. Privately owned and managed this restaurant provides excellent, friendly and yet discreet service. The menu is surprisingly good, the wine list above average and the ambiance just what is required after the stress of the 303.

Overnight stay in January 2015. Beautifully decorated, clean and cosy Hotel, the owner's were so friendly and chatty, but not intrusive! We had a lovely meal in the restaurant, the steak and ale pie is the best ever! Hope to return sometime soon.

I've spent 3 nights at The Walnut Tree hotel on business. Fabulous accommodation and even better food! The character filled room was very spacious, cosy and spotlessly clean. It has a contemporary bathroom that made the stay very comfortable. I'd happily visit again when on business or pleasure, the staff were very friendly, pleasant and accommodating. Free wifi throughout making... More

I have just come back after spending a few nights here on business. The food is excellent and served by people who obviously care about good service. The room was nice and I particularly liked the fact that you got a couple of comfortable chairs to sit and relax in - not found in many other hotels. Bathroom was good... More

Dined here on Friday evening, the service was good, the suroundings were even better, the food was excellant, I had the guinea fowl which was cooked to perfection, my fellow diners all had different to me and not a crumb left on the plate, the ambience was especially good, great for a celebration i.e birthday, anniversary.

every time we visit Somerset we dine at the Walnut Tree. Peter the owner and chef produces wonderful food (please bring back the belly pork!) and the atmosphere is snooky and welcoming. we have stayed once and agree with the comments about the bedrooms being past their use by date but for meals only it is one of the best...
